Berrylicious Apron...

is flirty and fun,
cherries and berries
and lashings of red ric rac braid.

i have adapted an amy butler pattern,
hacked at it really!
halved the length,
made another shorter layer,
gathered instead of pleated,
lengthened the ties
and ditched the pocket...

i folded the top layer's sides under a bit
just so the underlayer shows itself a little,
and added my own little tag...'if'

i love to use the selvedges
to give my aprons their name
and add
a couple of old buttons
from my button tin...

such is the dangerous life of a photographer;
out on location in the back yard...
 two huge green ants
 crawled covertly up my trouser leg
and took a few free bites of my left leg!
my leg was on fire with pain for a few hours...
the sacrifices i have made for my readers!

i went to see that dratted optometrist today...
then he tells me that the blurriness down the side of the glasses
is the way they are meant to be
with multifocals.
{i don't know how people drive with them on...please
enlighten me if you can!}

we discussed all the options,
i am pleased to report,
without tears from me or ranting or raving....

i have decided to change them to normal distance lenses
and to later get up close crafty reading glasses
when finances will allow.
{all decided in a very grown up way in order to
not throw good money after bad, so to speak}.

to finish on a happier note,
i went to my favourite cafe
and had a lovely fetta and spinach quiche,
a super fresh salad
and a muggacino...
and revived!

hoping you had a wonderful wednesday...
