woohoo!

I am so proud of myself!
Cindy-Lou, over at the http://apronista.ning.com makes these super-cute, chubby chick aprons and she posted a tutorial.
Look what I made:
cc apron 001
cc apron 004
cc apron 008
I LOVE this apron and I can't believe that I actually made something garment-like, it is something new for me...all the sizing, gathering,and whatnot.
Today is valances and panels for the pantry...maybe an oven mitt, dishtowel...I have lot's of yellow fabric.

cute! When I saw the picture on flickr, I thought "hey an apron that just might fit me! There's room in the bust!" Then I find out here it's called "chubby chick apron" - ha! I went to go check it out. But it's by invitation only. Darn. Then I googled chubby, chick apron. Don't do that - the search comes up with some scary things. Eek!
