For the past few years, we have been camping on my Birthday and it was a bit of a novelty waking up in a warm bed today, without the dread of having to get out of the warm sleeping bag and traipse through the dewy (or frosty) grass to go to the loo. The weather forecast was just not good enough for a camping trip and we decided to stay at home. There were tears, temper tantrums and other outbursts of emotion but after a BBQ on Friday with our camping friends, the children were happy enough to go about their usual weekend business. As for me, I was pleased when the rain started on Saturday evening. I felt less guilty for chickening out.
Anyway, I wanted to share a bit of my Birthday luck with you. Do you remember the peg apron I made recently? I got a bit carried away and made a few more. To say thank you to my readers far and near, I would like to give away one of the peg aprons. There are two to choose from:
This geometric fabric was leftover when I made Sam's curtains. I really love this fabric but unfortunately, it is no longer on sale.
I don't quite remember why I bought the fabric for this second apron. Quite possibly I bought it just because I loved it. I do this sometimes...
Both tie in the back with a big fancy bow. Oh, and before I forget: there is some wonky stitching, I am not perfect.
If you would like one of the peg aprons, please leave a comment, indicating which one you would prefer. I am happy to post worldwide. I'll pull a name out of my knitting bag on Saturday 10th May.
So, without further ado, I am logging off to look through my Birthday books. I am also hoping to find out why the house smells of burning oil and why I have been banned from the one room I wanted to use (my sewing machine and a half finished pinafore is in there, and the brand new box of flower head pins I got today)... some surprise waiting, no doubt.
Enjoy your Monday, wherever you are! Cx
