Apron -Zakka Along 2.0 Week 4

I was waiting to take better pictures of this apron. I really want to try for my blog pictures to look nice.   But I am not sure when it will stop raining.  So here is my apron (modeled by the hubs) that  I made for week 4 of the Zakka Along 2.0 (using Patchwork Please! by Ayumi Takahashi).  I finished it Sunday.  I wanted to be able to link up Sunday so I could have a chance of winning and I didn't have time to blog so I just put the picture on Flickr.  And I am glad I did, because I won!!!!!!!

I was working yesterday, taking a break at Dunkin Donuts, eating a gross sandwich, and drinking a frozen hot chocolate (there aren't a lot of options for a quick bite in the town I work in) and I read the email from Lindsey that I won.  I really had to hold back from telling the people who worked there (the only people there beside me) that I was a winner.  I was so excited it almost made my sandwich good.  So I won a gift card to Pinked Fabrics and a 1/2 yard bundle of linen from Robert Kaufman. 

Next,  I am planning on making the placemat for the Zakka Along 2.0 this week and I want to make a dress for Stella.  I have so much fabric and so many patterns but I can't decide on a combination that I am excited about.  I don't want to make it unless I think it is going to be really really cute.  I thought I would start today but I have basically done nothing today (other than take care of my kids).  We always change out of our pjs and shower or take baths but not today.  Maybe I'll do the dress tomorrow if I figure it out.  Well I just had an idea as I typed.  I will share later.

Wow, this apron is lovely ! Adorable, I just LOVE the retro fabrics you have used. So sweet and lovely colours ! they are perfect theme for the project!
You know ? I've now added that book to my wish list. In fact I had it on my list to buy in Dublin, ah, well.
I'm glad you are getting some craft time.

Here is too busy and too hot and so the pool is what we will be using these days:-)) I sometimes long for some rain so I can stay home and craft a little bit.
I'm doing some crochet wich I hope to show soon.
