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.
