Ok -- does anyone else remember the Cone of Silence from the old Get Smart show? Ya know -- they were supposed to use it to talk about super secret stuff? Well, my own personal Cone of Silence has been lifted!!! YEAH!! I can now talk about all that super secret sewing I've been doing!
So, what have I been making? Aprons. Lots and lots of aprons. They are for a new pattern that is being introduced at market by Tammy Tadd Designs. If you'd like to see two of them (one in child and adult size) go on over to Tammy's Blog and check them out. Yep, the two aprons hanging on the dressmaker's forms were made by yours truly! I've also made a few others to be used/worn at market.
I love, love, love the new Lakehouse fabrics I was playing with as well. The colors are soft, fun, and a little bit old fashioned. Not my usual palate of in-your-face brights -- but oh so fun all the same. I can so see myself going crazy when these make it to the stores. Not to mention the new hydrangeas that I haven't played with :0).
And did I mention that the pattern is for both adults and children's aprons?? So, like any self-respecting crafty mommy -- I made one for my own little one. I finally found something I wanted to cut into my Freshcut stash for. Hehehehehe. I didn't have any rick rack in the house (and for any of you who wouldn't be caught dead without any in the house -- um, well, what can I say?) for the trim -- but I love how the prairie points work on this one.
As for the pattern? It's fun -- and simple -- and easy! Really. I've made 8 of them in the last two weeks -- so it HAS to be simple and fast right? I can just see holiday themed aprons popping up at my house too -- we have to wear SOMETHING to protect our clothes for Christmas cookie baking right?
So, the last of the quilt market sewing I'm doing is done, I STILL need to post about all the goodies I got in the mail, and my mother is coming for a visit in SIX DAYS!!! Ok, I need to finish binding the quilt for the guest room, and, um, I think I need to clean, desperately! I'd better get going!
