I finished my apron!

I finally got a picture of my apron I was working on. Actually, I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out, considering the sewing machine fiasco, and the fact that I have not sewn anything (except a few craft items) since 1961!!!!! I really liked this dresser scarf, and I think I will keep this one as a trophy for overcoming my fears of the sewing machine (and because I didn't like the way I did the ties!!!!!)
I'm NOT giving up! I did buy more material for more aprons, so I'm in this for the long haul. I figure it will be a wonderful way to learn sewing techniques without having to use a lot of material, etc. Here it is ---- my first attempt!

I´ve been tagged by my friends Mary of Sew Dear to Me and Bebe of Off the Beaten Paths Designs.

Here's a fun "MEME" ~ You have to pick six (6) words that sum up your life. Ernest Hemingway was bet $10 that he couldn't sum up his life in six words. He won that bet when he wrote, "For sale, baby shoes, never worn." You can go to Bookbabie's blog and read about the book that was inspired by his quote and how it influenced her to start this meme.

Okay here are the Rules:

1. Write your own six word memoir...
2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like...
3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible, so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere...
4. Tag Four more blogs with links ...
5. Remember to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!

I'm inviting the following blogger friends to give this a try!


Now it is your turn! I'll be excited to read what you come up with! Deb
