At this point it seems highly likely that I'll be spending the month of October obsessing over aprons. There are worse habits.
Several of you have contacted me recommending I check out the apron pattern in the newish MaryJane's Stitching Room book. And others have cast a vote for the Lotta Jansdotter book, which I was already not so secretly lusting after. Then I found this photo of an apron made from the Lotta pattern and since the colours are basically exactly the same as our kitchen I considered it a sign. I've ordered both from Amazon (such a splurge!) and am secretly hoping they arrive in time for this weekend so I can start a new project. I have that itchy sewing feeling, and not nearly enough time to indulge it.
As it so happens, I also ordered a whack of patterns from Sublime Stitching (finally) last week. So perhaps my new apron will be an overly ambitious combination of fabric and fancy pants embroidery. We'll see. If all goes well, then many folks may be getting aprons this holiday.
