Finding a little time ...

to craft or sew isn't easy these days. We have been so busy getting things ready for the rapidly approaching due date of baby boy #4 (who is still currently nameless). With just one day shy of 3 weeks to go, there is still more to do, but I needed to take a break from de-cluttering, organizing, laundry and overall nesting to work on a little project and Mother's Day was just the excuse that I needed. So here is my latest creation that I sewed for my Mom for Mother's Day. Hopefully she has received it by now so I don't ruin her surprise (yes, I just sent it off and yes, I know it's late, someday I will get my act together, hopefully).

I used these instructions here, and even though it took a little more than an hour for me to complete it,(3 boys + 2 friends from school = an apron in a couple of hours!) I love how it turned out and I may need to make another one for myself.

So here it is: (*I am way to pregnant to model this little beauty and go figure, but I couldnt get any boy in this house to help me out, so a dining table chair did the trick.)



Now if I can just find some time to work on my diaper bag, and my car seat canopy, I will be doing good!


Happy Mother's Day Mom!

I love, love, love it! Thanks for thinking about me and making me such a cute apron. I can't wait to get it!

You are so sweet!

Received the apron and a great cookbook. Can't wait to try out some of the recipes. They are 5-ingredient slow cooker recipes. Just what I need on the days I work and am in a hurry. Thanks again! I love it!

Love you,
Mom

That turned out really cute! I can't believe my nephew is almost here. Has it really been 9 months? Of course, I can say that because I wasn't the one that was pregnant. Forget the diaper bag.... Target grocery bags work just fine! ;)
