I feel pretty...

It's been a while since I've posted. Wow, February. So much for discipline! Oh well. What have I been up to? Oh, this and that: some embroidery here, some knitting there, a decent amount of reading - and lots and lots of cooking.

During my adventures in the land of My Kitchen (it's a scary place sometimes), I have determined that I Need An Apron. But what apron to get? Should I make one? Should I buy one? I've been wanting a Flirty Apron, but couldn't decide which one to get! Chic Pink? Sassy Black? Chic Teal? Too any choices! And then, two days ago - an epiphany. I was at the fabric store, only intending to get some needles and a thimble for my latest project, and saw the pattern for this:

I was in love! I bought the pattern, some fabric, MORE thread... and now, two days later I have my very own Emmeline Apron!

Reverse side:

As an added bonus, I have had my mind changed about something. For a while I have been wanting to make a regency dress (circa 1795), but have been convinced my tummy would make me appear pregnant. You may notice from my pictures that I'm not a tiny girl. But this apron has an empire waist and is still flattering. I think if I were to make a regency dress it would look nice...
