The first finish of the year Ü

Ok I did pick the fastest project from my list to do but I felt entitled since I will be gone most of the month and I have to have atleast one finish this month. This was the scarf before the wash. This is the scarf after. I think it may need to be washed a couple more times but I like how it turned out. The best part is I got to move my turtle.Ü
I also finished this purse. I didnt put it on my list because all I had to do was add the handles. I am not crazy about the purse but it will make a good present for someone.

I also made this apron today. For some reason the middle ruffle which is actually red looks pinkish.I should of used black for all three tiers but I ran out of black and it was all about using only whats in my stash.


I also cleaned and organized a bit. Just enough that I now can walk through my sewing room without tripping on things.It looks like tomorrow I may actually get to work. I dont really want to but I will have to wether it warms up or not before Monday. So heres hoping tomorrow is above zero!

Happy New Year!
Love your blog. Stumbled upon it via the Sassy/Flirty Apron Swap. I too am an Apronista. My dear hubby is stationed in Anchorage with the US Army. Too cold up there for the children and I, so we're waiting for him here in Louisiana. I do know what you were going through with that sinus infection. The agony!! If you get the shots in a six-pack, send me some. LOL, just kidding. Oh, we totally love the turtle.
