Yes, I have not posted for almost a year. I just needed to take a step back and re-adjust my life. I retired from the Quilt Walk after 14 years. It was a big step for me as it was my "baby". But guess what..it was like the weight of the world was off my shoulders.

This last year I have just relaxed more, had lots of company, traveled, worked my day job and enjoyed my life! No deadlines! No pressure! Pretty awesome!

I came home from work early today to drink all the stuff you have to drink to prepare for a colonscopy tomorrow. While I was waiting for it all to take effect I was reading blogs and came across Rae Ann's She had made this darling apron out of a man's shirt. So I went to Leon's closet and found an old shirt and went to work. There were stains on it though and so I thought "why not spray it with bleach and see what happens". Rae Ann has a great tutorial and pictures so it made up really fast and easy.I sprayed it and it turned out great. I had some wonderful crocheted trim with rickrack and buttons to add to the pockets and then it was done!
Then I took the back of the shirt, added a facing at the neck , a pocket and ties and then there were two aprons. A fun way to spend the afternoon while drinking all that stuff for my test tommorrow! Thanks Rae Ann for the great ideas!

Wish me luck on my test tomorrow!
