some cuteness...

in my email (which i checked for the first time in 4 days!) i managed to dig out the Scarlet Lime Newsletter for April. it is wonderful! in it, Christy T. mentioned a previous newsletter in which she posted instructions on how to make aprons out of dishtowels. i made one this morning:

where do you think i went at 8pm last night with mr. o? to hunt for dishtowels. i really only found one set that i liked and ended up getting some fabric from the dollar table at wally world. the whole idea is to use the dishtowels b/c the seams are already done. but, it was just a simple fold, iron, pin and sew for the fabric, so i used a dishtowel on top and the fabric underneath.

i love it! thanks for sharing that project Christy! (and if you haven't checked out the SL kit yet, i strongly suggest that you do. she also has some great new exclusive items in store for May. it would be an awesome time to join!)

we're having a silent auction at wally for some families who lost everything in the fires a little over a week ago. i think i'm going to put this in there. hopefully it will draw a few dollars.

that's all for today. keeping my fingers crossed for wingstop today! my all-time fave!

Wow! So cute. I'm trying to start sewing (just getting the nerve to cut into all that beautiful fabric I've ammassed) and you've inspired me to get started.

You know I love SL kits and Christy is totally amazing! Love that you made one of the aprons. It is so super cute! I love the aprons, but if I made one, I would probably never wear it. I just wouldn't want it to get dirty...LOL!! :-)
