In my last post I said I wouldn't have much time for stitching in the next month or so, but I have a backlog of a few little homemade birthday gifts and swap items, so I did manage to steal a little time in the sewing room today. Six friends in Vaasa and I have been celebrating our belated holidays birthdays - two gifts down, four to go!
I saw this apron idea on a quilt blog last year (I can't seem to find the link, but I know I have it saved somewhere, so I'll add it later because I know I'm going to make a few more of these this year!) The apron is reversible and about 27" square. (Please excuse the unvacuumed floor in the background!)
Below is a microwavable heating pad filled with rice (2kg!) and lavender made with IKEA fabric a friend gave me last summer. I rarely miss having a microwave - just at Thanksgiving, when I have a craving for microwave popcorn, and when I'm in need of a rice-filled wool sock for a sore muscle!
