It's been awhile

Wow! It's been a long time since I've posted anything new.

Life has been a little crazy in my small corner of the world.

One of my daughters got sick and had to be in the hospital for a few days the weekend before Christmas. That puts all kinds of plans into a tail spin to say the least.

She's home and doing fine now, thankfully.

Then at the office our new software came in and that's when we found out they would no longer be supporting our server so we had to get a new one and set up all of the computers with it. There were problems along the way with that too so we had to update software on the computers too. Gaah!! We just wish they had told us about the server situation during the summer which is our slow time. Oh well, it's done now. Perhaps I'll be able to get back to crafting soon.

I did manage to get this little craft apron made for my niece for Christmas.

I used pieces from two different dish towels that I bought at Target over the summer. They were on clearance for next to nothing and I figured I could use the cotton fabric for something. (I've been trying to find fabrics from things other than just what I see at the fabric store -- especially since we no longer have one in this town. It's at least a 45 minute drive to a fabric store except for one quilting store.)


I got the idea from here. I didn't follow her directions exactly (because that's the kind of rebel I am). Actually, only because I wanted to use the two different fabrics and I used bias tape along the edges and for the ties.

I'm please with the way it turned out and I'm sure my niece will love it too.
