Finished projects

Well, it's pretty late but. . .

I have finished all my projects!

Well. . . maybe not all. . .

There are still a few dishes in the sink, the bathroom didn't get scrubbed and poor Henry ended up with a sandwich for supper (which he had to make himself!), but I did get this done. . .



Some family baking.

I love this cinnamon bread!

Cupcakes for tommorows potluck. I got a little carried away with the food colouring! It's been a long time since I've used them. They are professional colours that I got from my dad when he was still in the bakery and they are very potent. . .

Here is the link for the video I used to make these. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9qtZwHHmx4&feature=related

Here's my finished apron!

It was great fun to make. There was a lot of hand sewing involved, which is why I finished so late.

It's also a bit big for me because I copied it from my thrift store apron and I couldn't figure out how to make it smaller.

Ah well. . . that leaves room for growth.

This is the back.

Jesse (my youngest) said this apron is totally me.

What could be better?

Well, I had better go finish up my dishes before I have a last cup of tea (decaf), and a piece of cinnamon loaf.

Goodnight.

I'm so sorry about the lavendar! How traumatic for you. :) The cinnamon bread looks wonderful! Can you share the recipe with us?
