No not the baked variety, but the sewing variety. This pattern is from the book Cupcake & Patchwork Cookery Collection by Julie Mackenzie. It has lots of beautiful things in it to make, and lots of lovely recipes for cupcakes too which I will try and make during the week.
I started this apron on Friday evening, drawing the pieces up to be cut out on Saturday. I ended up cutting the pieces out yesterday, and put the cupcakes on the bottom to be embroidered around, and then stitched it all together after dinner tonight. Isabelle now wants a pocket, as all girls like to put things in pockets. I think I will make one in the rose fabric and attach it to the centre. I had a lot of fun making this apron, and they even have one in adult size too, although mine would not be pink. By the way, the angel in the photo is a present my sister bought for me when she ran in
her run last week at Appollo Bay. I really like angels, and this one sits in my front hallway now hanging from the shelf. I think she is quite nice and cute, and I am so happy my sister thought of me. She did really well in her run reducing her time by 3 minutes so she is getting a lot faster now.
I have also been doing some knitting too, as the baby blanket nearly has 3 patterns done, the green cardigan only has a half front, 2 sleeves and the collar to complete it, and a few other things have been started and knitted on too. They will have to wait though as I am on antibiotics at the moment, yes sick again. I took a trip to the doctors on Saturday after I didnt feel well, and the right gland in my neck was very swollen, and my bottom lip was full of cold sores too. I must have looked a sight at the birthday party Isabelle attended at the bowling alley for her school friend. She had a wonderful time and at the end was picking up speed with her bowling ball too. I think in future we will have to go and have a game as I have not bowled for quite a few years, but it would be fun with the kids to do every now and then. Well I am off to lie on the couch and try and knit some more, although this scratchy swollen throat doesnt make me want to really do anything for too long. I hope to be a lot better by the end of the week, fingers crossed.
