For those of you who have inquired about an apron pattern, I’ve finished drafting one and will put up later this week! I’m going to go through it again and make sure I didn’t miss anything and that the directions are clear and concise.

My boys party was pretty darn fun. His teacher made it a point that if he wanted to invite friends, he had to invite the whole class. So. We did. I was a little bit afraid no one would show up and absolutely terrified they ALL would. How many did? ONE. She brought along her 2 sisters (one a year older, one a year younger), and baby brother who is Andrew’s age. A friend of mine from high school brought her daughter and with the 7 kids total, I was exhausted at the end. I cannot even imagine the chaos that would have been a bigger party! Boy! I bow down to you super mamas.

Like, I said, though, ’twas fun! So fun, I didn’t snap any photos until my kids were opening gifts. ooopsies! You’ll just have to trust me when I say the kids had a terrific time in the moonwalk. Nathan partied ’til he puked. That’s right. He lost his lunch after a bunch of jumping in 90-degree heat. Luckily, his friends were gone already, so only me and grandma witnessed it. We forced him into a chill-out period in his bedroom. He was drenched in sweat and looked awful. After about 2 hours of cool down, he couldn’t help himself and came back down and jumped some more until we turned the moonwalk off.

Sorry for the puke story. I gotta keep it real!

ANYWAY. I am SO GLAD IT’S OVER. And I’m also glad that it was a party for both kids and I don’t have to repeat it all in a few months. I can rest until next May. I don’t care about any events except my boys’ birthdays! That’s the mom life for you.

Now, I have time to do more goodknits related stuff. I have the apron pattern and also the Terzetto beanie pattern to share!

I’m taking a break from typing, today, though, and spending my evening cutting and/or tearing this fabric into strips so that I can make some gnarly fabric tape.

Lovely summer florals!

Any super sweet summer projects going on? For us in Coastal Texas, June 1 = summer. 90+ degrees every.single.day. I only wish it would rain. My lawn is dying!

    omg,
    I didn’t expect the apron pattern that soon. If I were you I would have to recover from the birthday party for at least two weeks. I know all about them but thank God for me they are in the past. My childern are 22,20 and 18. They organise their own party. Not in the house, I promise you that.
    But that is so super. I love the new color combination.
    Love, Ann

    • I had a draft already made, I just need to revise it and then format it for the blog. I’m not sure if I will be putting up a pdf or if I need to take photos of certain steps! That’s what I’ll be deciding this week.

  • Yay!! I am so glad that you wrote up the pattern for the apron. now if only I had time to learn how to properly crochet. my crochet skills are pretty sad.
