Friday Night Sew In (the LATE report !)

Well here it is SUNDAY when we were supposed to report in on SATURDAY for the Friday Night Sew In ...... we're a bit late .... so what else is new ? (sigh) Well to tell you the truth, our Friday Night Sew In spilled over into Sunday afternoon (with a break on Saturday to clean bathrooms and do laundry ....)

ANYWAY, to make a long story short (too late already, I know !) the MBIAJ Sewing Dept has finally finished .....




....this apron !! Ta Daaaaa!!!!



.




....and this is how it looks while one is trying to figure out the best angle to take a picture of oneself and not look like the side of a barn ....












......and yes, that is "I LOVE LUCY" fabric on those heart shaped pockets because this apron is a very belated bridal shower gift for ......





.....my sweet niece, who , like her favorite aunt, is a big "I Love Lucy" fan ! So now that she and her new hubby have been home from their honeymoon for about 3 weeks, I thought it high time to finish up that apron !!! (I did have a back up plan - and that was Pottery Barn online bridal registry .... you just browse, click, and ship ! so believe it or not, there actually was a gift there from yours truly ON TIME !!! Pottery Barn must have had people like me in mind when they came up with that online registry !!! PHEW !!!)

OK, well, since Pottery Barn isn't involved in this apron-gift, I better get moving since I have to do the wrapping and shipping myself !

(P.S. that beautiful picture of my niece and her hubby was not taken by me .... as if you can't tell by comparing my photos with that one !!! That was taken by their photographer (and I apologize because I don't have his name or info.)

Be back soon!
Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)

WHAT a beautiful apron for such a lovely bride. You are a dear to make it for her. :) Glad Matt is well again. So hard when your kids are sick, right? You have had a busy summer.
