family, knitting, living

D is for Done!….almost

I am almost finished with the apron.  I have embroidered all the names.  All I have left is to embroider “Morning Glory” on the waist band and the Linden School’s symbol on the upper left of the apron body.  I have to say, i have been slogging through this last portion an d stealing time to do other things.  I have knit a pair of newborn booties http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/stay-on-baby-booties-5 from a Churchmouse design for the yarn store I work in and I cast on a pair of clog socks  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/turkish-bed-socks for myself (also a Churchmouse design).

Here’s a picture of my husband modeling the apron…he’s a little silly at times.

  7. What a great idea! The DS has just finished GCSE’s and has a school shirt signed by all his friends. How cool to sew the names and make them permanent : )

    (Very stylish look the hubby has goin’ on there btw!)

      I love your idea for making friends signatures permanent. I think there are all sorts of things that could be done with this technique. i love Soulemama’s blog and her books. She is so creative and inspiring.
      Hubby is quite the style icon…isn’t he!
