What 548 Yards of Thread Looks Like

Hooray!  They are done.  Just barely in time.  If you are ever thinking of sewing for hours and hours with a sinus headache I strongly recommend against it.  I survived and the aprons fared pretty well.  Only one run in with the seam ripper.  A new record.  As I was sitting at the machine, dosed up on  Dayquil and garlic, boo hooing my fever and general crummy feeling-ness I got to thinking about Project Runway.  They create elaborate entire outfits from scratch without patterns in about a quarter of the time it took me to make seven simple aprons.  They must be robots or have a secret crew of elves or mice finishing their garments off camera.  Off to crash on the couch.  Hoping I don't have to see chocolate brown thread for a long, long time.


  1. Those are fabulous! I would love to see a picture of all of you wearing them!! And I hope you feel better!

  2. HEllo hello! Thank you so much for the camera it the lens that makes the camera good? and are all lens compatible with any brand of camera? maybe dumb questions, but i have no idea!
    Great aprons, by the way!!
    THanks for the jean jacket drooling--I had fun making it!!

  3. They look great!! Now you can get a good night's sleep knowing they are all done! Hope you have a fabulous time with all of your friends!! Get well soon!
