The Green Apron...

good afternoon!

today i'm even later than yesterday...
the sun is down on the other side of the hills
and last light is fast approaching!

i have a good reason
for not posting sooner...

i've finished the green apron.

pressed and on the hanger..

a bit of detail..
a flower shaped button on the frilly pocket
the loop.

'fandango'..a great fabric to work with,
beautiful quality
a kind of polished look to it.
{thanks kate spain!}

the back and ties...

a black label & 'if''.

hopefully this will get mailed tomorrow
or friday at the will be a surprise..maybe?
{sometimes she checks out this}

i've got other news too...
last night i made my first sale on 'madeit'.
i was so excited
i got up early this morning to wrap it prettily
and post it off on it's way to melbourne..yay!

i've got more news too..
i won a 'versatile blogger' award
from beth at 'boatshedchic'..
i'll pass that on tomorrow.

i think i might see if i can join in with 'kootoyoo' today..
if blogger will let me play!

'til tomorrow..
