The pattern was great. My mind is reeling with all the apron-making opportunities for Christmas gifts. I just wonder if I'm the only one who loves aprons. Mom made me the French Flea Market apron last year for Christmas, and oh, I love it so. I can just imagine hosting a Christmas cocktail party or Bunko wearing my French Flea Market apron, black leggings, and a black turtleneck. Just precious! See, I told you my mom was the best. (Now I just need to have a party or start a bunko group.)
I'm just not sure if I'm going to make slippers or aprons tonight. I did have to make an emergency run to Las Colchas to buy some hand-dyed felted wool for the flowers on my slippers. If you're into handwork and you're in the area, stop by. That store is so cute and so friendly. I wanted to pull up a chair and start stitching that very moment. The last time I was there, they were having an early morning sale, and you received a bigger discount if you showed up in your pajamas, so my son and I went at 7am (he wore boots with his pj's). I love any place that will welcome me in my jammies. More on the wool in a later post (when I actually make more slippers).
