An apron and a resolution

Last week I left the heat and humidity of Tennessee for...the heat and humidity of Boston! After a cooler-than-usual summer, the temperature and humidity spiked right before I arrived. But I survived, because being in Boston meant I was back with A.!

A. had a summer internship in Boston, and what with me having my own job, I couldn't really go with him. So we spent two months in different apartments with only one weekend to provide a little bit of face-time to balance all those phone conversations.

Between the heat of summer and the fact that making an involved dinner for one just isn't that fun, there wasn't a ton of cooking going on in our house. So both of us ended up eating out a fair amount (where "a fair amount" is more than once a week). We agreed, on the way home, that we both needed a period of eating-out detox.

Good thing I went ahead and purchased the pattern for the Emmeline apron from Sew Liberated when there was a 2-for-1 sale earlier this summer. I'm thinking it will be super when I make some "glad you're home" cookies.


  1. What a cute apron! I need to make something like that for myself. I have an apron, but it's way too utilitarian.

  2. Super cute apron! I'm also wondering whether A is the only one eligible for these delicious-sounding "glad you're home" cookies?

  3. I knew there was something special about you, Kathy!!! I loved meeting you throughout Kristin's wedding and pre-wedding festivities. YOU SEW! I love it! I like to sew as well and I laughed at one of your posts about a project you were giving as a wedding gift and were taking full advantage of the 6mo rule. I think I've stretched that to 2+ years now. Still working on Kristin's. .... Maybe for Christmas?! :)
    So excited to see we have something so fun in common.

    Take care!
