Gifts for Christmas Past

a-is-for-apron

Oh I am so embarrassed to admit this but here goes….I still have Christmas gifts to make and give out from last year! Ok close your mouth, I know its hard to believe, but I do know that I am a tad bit behind.

Yes its true, last Christmas I promised each of my nieces, sisters and mother an apron. I have 9 nieces, 4 sisters and one mother. I completed some of the aprons, but the sad part is that I am not sure who I have left to make an apron for. I do have a bit of an excuse though, my father was in an out of the hospital the months leading up to Christmas and passed away on the 23rd of December. Wow still brings tears to my eyes.

Well this morning as I was laying in bed, I spotted my beloved A is for Apron book sitting next to the sewing machine, it was calling to me(I am not the only one this happens to, am I?), so I opened it up(haven’t looked at it since last December) and my mind started going, thinking of all kinds of great aprons I could make. The creativity is flowing and I am excited to get the aprons going and to their rightful owners(if I can figure out who they are).

And it doesn’t help that I have a bunch of over ripe bananas on the counter too, waiting for me to make them into a wonderful banana bread from a recipe I got from my friend Bianca. Dang too much to do today, better get moving! Check back for the finished aprons and banana bread recipe.
