I'm the world's worst blogger.

I think I like the idea of blogging far more than the actual process. Plus, for some reason, I've never figured out how to take low-res images on my camera, so I need to download images to my computer, shrink them, and then upload to the web. All in all, this means my blog gets updated roughly once a month.
Despite the lack of blogging, I've been crafting. On craftster, I signed up for an apron swap, and made this apron.

Close-up of cross-stitch - I found the pattern here, after searching everywhere for a free pig pattern that was easy to do. (Tight deadline, of course, as always.)

I'm very pleased with how it came out.

And here's a picture of the apron Julie made me in exchange. Makes me feel like I'm about to do the cha-cha, or something. Fun! (I've a mental image of me in retro-getup, dancing New York, New York. Go figure.)

This post has become all about aprons, I see. The rick-rack on the apron Julie made me reminds me that I really wanted to make an apron for Tie One On. And at the start of March, I bought a ton of rick-rack, fully intending to make an apron for this. Hmm. I have 7 days, so perhaps this will indeed get done.

Getting off the apron subject, my birthday was on Thursday. Yay! Happy birthday to me! I had the most amazing day (week actually), with good thrifting, dinner and drinks with good friends, yummy wine and dessert, and a glorious, sunny day.

And these adorable cupcake placecard holders! I've been fairly immune to the cupcake cuteness sweeping the blog world, but here, I had to give in. Brian bought me these on Tuesday as a birthday week present (birthday week presents, what a brilliant idea!) and I love them. Too cute!
(Yes, I should clean my sewing machine.)

The aprons are great, I really like the heart pocket.

I'm using flickr now, there's an option to use their service to put the pictures on your blog.. I haven't tried it, but FYIh
