I am dedicating this weeks sewing to my husband of thirteen years, Mark.
He is so great. He is a humble man. He takes our marriage seriously. I appreciate how hard-working and responsible he is and how he loves our boys. That I was able to stay home with them for seven years and that we have a lovely home. He doesn’t mind my mad op shopping and the mess in the sewing room. Well, he minds sometimes!
He works really hard as a Tiler – making other people’s homes absolutely beautiful. Those tiles behind me he did them – aren’t they great!? And he let me have exactly what I wanted – to go with our recycled country-style kitchen that I designed. I had to wait a long time for him to do them but it was worth the wait!
Last time I made one of these novelty aprons I swore never to make another one! But how irresistible are the hearts? And it seemed like the perfect use of this Cherry Print fabric that has a quite a clichéd fifties look to my eyes now, but that I adored when I bought it a couple of years ago. It was good to use up some of the pink Ric-Rac in my stash and the Rose Print and that was left over from my “Coming Up Roses” Gypsy Blouse, which is still one of my favourite items of clothing.
Sorry about the heavily airbrushed legs and fake tan. No, actually I’m not! This week I learn how to do that on Pic Monkey (photo editing software) – I might get them out again for you!
Let’s see if he reads this: “I love you Bubba!”
