Girls Night Out

Aprons, aprons and more aprons!!! This is the final result of a renewed love of mine. After trying to decide on a theme for a girls night out, I somehow feel in love with the idea of making aprons. I am not sure why I love them so much. I hardly have worn an apron. There is just something about them that brings back memories of my childhood. I can visualize my grandmother cooking over the stove. So, aprons had become the theme of "girls night out".
I quickly enlisted the help and knowledge of my wonderful friend Dot. It has been years since I have sewn a thing. Although I have a love for creating, I also have a love for measuring, planing and mearuring some more. The day that we started making aprons was a refreshing and difficult time for me. I wanted to overthink everything. In the mean time, Dot would just snip, rip and ask "what do you think?". Boy did I have a lot to learn that day. Now I am embracing the fabrics and letting the aprons happen. I can't wait to share more of our creations.

Just For Starters...

I have been thinking about starting a blog for some time now. I have avoided it until this moment because I really had no idea how to begin. Today, I am jumping right in and starting. I have a lot to learn but I am ready to begin my journey as a blogger.

I am a recent college graduate and have finally found time for something other than homework. I am an educator, creator and dreamer! I have many interest and look forward to building new friendships during the process of learning about blogging.

My most recent creative efforts have resulted in a renewed interest in sewing, particularly arpons. I love them. I hope to post a few pictures soon.
