Cafe Apron

Cafe Apron


I finally got around to putting the pocket on my mum's Cafe Apron. You can still see through it a lil' but it was Mother's Day and I didn't have time or fabric to do it a third time. Mum loved it, anyway. I can't go on enough about how much I love this book! I started the doorstop, I'm about halfway through it. I was soooo careful when cutting that $15 a yard fabric. I lined everything up so I wouldn't waste any of it.
I found another AWESOME fabric/notions/yarn site called SupErBuZZy, it has the coolest fabrics and some Japanese yarn called MakeMake. I can't wait to order some stuff!


Hibiscus Detail

I think I told you all about the super cool hibiscus tree I picked up last week. Well, a couple blooms popped open and they are beautiful. The rest of my container/deck garden is doing well. The bulbs I planted are staring to push through, and the parsley is starting to get bushy. My sage hasn't shot up yet, it's been almost two weeks. Hopefully, we'll see something soon.

Super cute apron! And I love the MakeMake site. I must buy something from there because it's so awesome! I have to start googling craft sites more often now.

The apron is fantastic! Glad you found Superbuzzy -- the cuteness can be addictive, though. :)
