The other half


Finished with the other half of my present for my friend.  I found this awesome "I Love Lucy" fabric and I sewed her an apron!  This was fun to make, but I am not great at sewing, so there are a few mistakes.  I think I see them more than others though- Now I can finally pack up the little table I use for crafts that has been a permanent fixture in my living room.  Hubby will probably be happy about that!  I'm off to make a pecan pie for Christmas-wish me luck!  I have never tried one before, and my hubby is from the south so there is a little pressure here:)

Kin it is gorgeous...I dont' know Lucy but the apron is so sweet. I think aprons are really pretty...I only own from Japan and I never wear it.

Glad the pie turned out well...always good to impress the MIL with your cooking skills ;-)
