Sunny Sewing Room Saturday

My assistant, Daisy and I spent some lovely quality time in our sunny pink sewing room today.








One of Daisy's many specialties is wrestling with the measuring tape....



....and what , you might ask,were we working on today?

...little "retro" aprons for a cute little 2 year old person....(I showed you one of these aprons I was working on a few posts ago ... these are Cindy Taylor Oates patterns .... and they are SO cute and SO quick and SO easy and SO fun to make, that ....just like potato chips ..... you can't stop at just one!!!) ...... and look at what I was unbelievably excited about ......


...PLEATS !!









...teeny, tiny pleats on a teeny, tiny apron! (OK, so what if that was the highlight of my day .....)

.....Anyhow,it's not like Daisy and I don't get any company in the Pink Sewing Room.... our nosy neighbor, Ethel, heard we were making aprons today and had to stop by and show us hers.....









.....and to read us a letter from some of the other neighbors complaining about this noise ....
(just kidding, no complaints THIS year ..... yet ....but the dirtbike season is just beginning .....)



......anyhow, after we got rid of the nosy neighbor, and the noisy dirtbikes, Daisy and I FINALLY got back to work .....








......wait a minute ..... where's Daisy?






.....SHEESH !!!! Siesta time ...... I guess I'll finish those aprons myself....




.....TA DA !!!








......now I might be able to get my teenage boys to wear babushkas, Easter bunny ears, and big red wax lips, but they're just too big to model aprons made for their 2 year old cousin .... and Daisy, well as you saw, her majesty is taking her siesta so she isn't available to model ..... so I had to resort to asking this bear to model the aprons ..... (I must say, the bear was the most cooperative one of the bunch today!)











Hope you had a sunny and productive Saturday!

Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)

I don't know what's cuter...the kittycat or the aprons! Hmmm...a kitty cat wearing an apron would go off the cute-o-meter! (I have two cats. Therefore, I am wise enough to know Daisy would never be so undignified as to wear an apron.)
