Finally! Here's a shot of my awesome apron from Amy for the Summer Apron Swap. I love this apron! I just bought the pattern book so I can sew up some of these myself. I guess I better get started on my apron for the swap....

I've seen this shirt on just about every sewing blog that I read. This weekend Simplicity patterns were on sale at Joann's, so I thought I'd give it a try. I bought some inexpensive fabric (it's really cute, but the photo doesn't really show it) and went right home wash it. I finished up the neckline and hemming this morning. It was pretty easy, but making the casing for the neck elastic did cause some minor swearing.

Sorry for the wrinkles; I just finished nursing Ava.

... I sewed a little something...

During one of Ava's naps the other day I managed to put together two zippered pouches.

I am done with my part time tutoring job for the summer, so one would assume that I'd have more time for sewing. So far, that's not the case. We've been working hard on Ava's sleeping-- mainly getting her to fall asleep in her crib by herself. Last night was um, challenging, but tonight was smoooooth. I'm using lots of ideas from The No Cry Sleep Solution.

I received my apron from the Summer version of the Sassy Apron Swap. When we have a sunny day again, I'll take some photos and post them . I love it! Thanks, Amy! Better get started on the apron for my partner....
