Late Xmas giving

Yes it has been over a month since Christmas, I  am aware. I actually gave this gift a few weeks ago and had forgotten about the pics that I had taken weeks before but had not been able to post yet. A personalised apron with a touch of pink (her favourite colour) for my MIL. I have recently taken to wearing an apron while baking with the kiddies. Things tend to get a bit messy sometimes and it saves me having to change my clothes 2 times each day, which equals more washing (not so bad), more pegging out (getting worse) and folding (BAD!). Not only does it save me washing an extra set of clothes each time, but I get to prance around in frilly creations.



 I am loving this pink trim and brought MORE than enough to get the 6" I needed for the trim with plenty left over. I'm thinking a nice swimmer coer up, Kaftan, tunic kinda thing. Have you seen any great patterns around? I love the cover up from Rae here but with no pattern it would be impossible for me, and the tunic from here and also this one from sew liberated. So have you seen anything similar to these? i just want to make sure that I look at them all and don't turn around half way through sewing and stop because I found another that I love more...

Looks great on you Sarah. It's a good job you put Sue's name on it, or she might not have got it!
