Hi, guys! Happy February! Kind of glad January is over and done with, aren't you? I think it's my least favorite month of the year. Anyway- I whipped this apron up last night for this round of Tie One On. The theme is polka-dots and we all know there is no shortage of that stuff in my fabric stash. I was also realizing that it was last February, I think, that I gave away an apron that looked oddly similar to this one (I'm so lame- can I not think out of the polka-dot/paisley box???) So I've officially decided to kickoff the 2nd annual February Apron Give-away! And just incase you want the deets- it's a half apron and every other panel is polkies. The waistband is paisley but the apron strings are polkies, too and depending on size (my very large and growing belly make for poor judgment) strings are probably long enough to wrap around to the front. So there you have it. Leave a comment- I'll draw a winner next week. And oh yeah, and I'm including a little something special in the box, too. A little baking something. It's tradition.
Speaking of Aprons...I wanted to let you in on a little project I was involved in last Spring: An Apron Book! I was so thrilled to be one of the designers for this book. I designed one of the 25 aprons featured, along with a pattern. You can pre-order now (and so funny- it comes out the day before I'm due!) I give birth to books, babies, you name it.
So does anyone want to be our (Henry's) Valentine? He's kind of obsessed right now with getting a valentine. In. the. mail. I though it would be fun to have a few of you (i.e., your kid) make a valentine and then we could swap with eachother. I mean what little one doesn't like getting mail? It can be all about crayons or markers or glitter & glue. Just a valentine- no major packages here. E-mail me if you are interested (firstname.lastname@example.org) I thought we could mail out our Valentines end of next week.
So tomorrow's Groundhog's Day. We are celebrating it with Richard & Betsey (okay I'm not even sure if they know it's Groundhog's Day...) Maybe we'll bring these . But then again, if I eat too many of those, I may have to get this. Or maybe we'll watch the movie, Bill Murray is always good on a Saturday night. I'll be sure to fill you in on all the deet's.
I'm heading out for a road-trip to Utah on Monday with one of my hilarious girlfriends. We can't wait. It's going to be a hoot. See you next week!
The Hawaii Chair.....(we can't stop singing it...trust me, you won't be able to, either. I can't stop thinking about how totally unatural it all looks....balancing books????)
