Hey Folks! I started this blog before pinterest came along, or before I found it, at least. A lot of the posts here are merely links to things I wanted to remember. I need space on my account, so if you find something you like, open the link and then pin it quick, as I will be deleting the posts that are not my original ideas.

My New Apron

I have been hanging on to this skirt for at least a year.  It looked like a cute apron to me, and today was the day.  I busted out some brown jersey knit, I love the way it flows, and whipped up a ruffle and a bib/bodice using elastic thread.  Then I just sewed it all together and added satin ribbon for the ties. I like the look of the neckline tying on the front, plus I am less likely to tie my hair into the knot.  I pinned on a little tatted-lace flower and I am ready to go.

Except the fact that it is so cute I can't wear it to make things that stain.  I'll have to bust out my lunch lady apron.  Because birdhouses and sunflowers are what gourmet cooking is all about.


  1. Hey! My skirt! It is way cute sister. Just look at what you can do that sewing machine!
