*my first apron*

Here, as promised, are pictures of the apron I've made for mum as part of her birthday present; it was SO easy to do, no pattern needed, I will definitely be making some more! Really enjoyed doing it, it only took an evening, and I'm really pleased with the finished article! It's two-sided and can be worn both sides, so the girls modelled a side each...

Not great pictures, but you get the general gist!

The walnut and coffee cake is made, and looks AND smells lovely, but of course the proof of the pudding will be in the eating; what do I do, break into it to check it's OK, eat that one and make a fresh one tomorrow night, or take a chance on it tasting OK and not worry about it??!!!

Have got all my stuff ready for the workshop tomorrow; very excited and really looking forward to it. Just checked the route finder, and it should only take me about 40 minutes to get to Linz's tomorrow - should be a breeze at that time in the morning. Will be taking my camera with me, so should have some fab photos to show tomorrow night.

Happy Weekend, everyone!

IS that 'real' vintage fabric, or newly designed? It's a lovely apron, although I am far more interested in how the coffee cake turned out, it being my favourite cake of all time.
