Well the apron kick-off was certainly exciting.
My mother came into town to help me,
and thank god for that.
We were literally buried in fabric, thread and needles.
Well, I still am.... she got to hop on a plane this afternoon.
Thank you dearly to all of those who made orders!
They are being shipped out this week,

1. Aprons are not as simple as they seem.
2. Fabric disappears very quickly.
3. Ernestine was not prepared to take on this task.
4. Wine makes sewing exceptionally fun and relaxing.

As much as I love her, we had no time to wait for her to recuperate.

2. They are guaranteed to make your food taste better.
(Seasoned bread crumbs and pepper aren't the only flavor in this kitchen)
3. I am open to fabric suggestions.
I found this one that I liked and will now offer:
So be sure to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Facebook me
and I'll get one out to you!
