As most of you know Mom will be home tomorrow, after being gone for a month. I will be picking her up around 8am in the morning. Since she was gone on Christmas we will be celebrating Christmas with her on Saturday. I spent the evening making her a last minute gift. This is just a little extra something since she cooks for a living I thought a new apron would come in handy. You can't tell that much about it in the photo and I couldn't get Andrew to model it for me (14yr old boys don't seem to think Aprons are cool) anyway, it is a lot nicer than it looks in the photo. The fabric is a thick cotton canvas type. And it is "paisley" that is both our favorites. We love anything with paisley in it. It comes right above the knee and I added a pocket on the right so that she can put her cell phone in it. Seems everytime I call her she is looking for her phone.
Saturday is my brother's birthday. He will be 40! Since we will all be at mom's I hate not to give him an extra gift for his birthday. But I had planned on giving him and his wife a bed-size quilt for Christmas, would it be wrong to make that a gift for his birthday and Christmas since I am giving it to both of them??
Oh and the apron is one more thing off of my January To Do List!! It is getting shorter!!! Now, if I'm not mistaken I think all I have left on there for January is a "Sock Monkey" for Hunter and to finish my "Village Sampler" into a top. I don't know why I am so excited, that Sampler will take me the rest of the month!! :( And to think I only need 3 more blocks....
