My appoliges and some swaps.

I've been a tad bit boring lately I know and I even tried giving up my blog. I was trying to do other forms of art but that isn't really working out for me so I've gone back to what works best and that seems to be sewing and crochet which I'll show you later. I decided to try and blog again and hopefully be a better blogger. but I'm not making any promises.

I joined a few Christmas swaps. One is the Flirty Apron Swap. We have to make a Christmas apron for our partner. the apron must have at least one snow flake. My partner said she like snowmen and gingerbread men but when I saw this fabric(raided from a friends stash)

I knew this is what I wanted to make her apron with. I hope she likes it. I am making a cut full size apron using a free pattern I found on the Sew 4 Home website. It is a vintage style apron and a first for me. I really don't like to use patterns when I sew but when I saw that one I fell in love with it. I plan to make myself one after I finish with my partners. We have to include tuck in the spell out a word. I've choosen the word snow and will be working on my tuck in as soon as the apron is finished.

The next swap I joined was Aunt Pitty Pat's Crumb Catcher swap. We have to make a mug rug for our partner. I'm still working on my idea for that. I had started one but it didn't turn out so well so I'm back to square one. I do have new the fabric picked out for it just need to figure out what I'm gonna do with it.
