Sunday snippets

in which our plucky heroine is slightly tired of sewing...

I've been sewing like a madwoman, completing projects for other folks both commissioned and for friends. One of the most fun projects recently was the aforementioned "baprons" for little Kestrel, who is discovering the joys of solid food. I'm well aware that seven are nowhere near enough to get through a week, but I had a lot of fun delving into the stash of small fragments from former projects and gifted bits. Each one of these has a story attached, whether or not the stories get passed along, for certain the little garments will be of use, which is all I ever desire.

My dear pal Drusa, the skilled and talented woodworker*, will be teaching a workshop later this summer on making a Norse style 6 board chest, starting from riven wood boards all the way to completion.

  1. Your baprons are really sweet. I have the pattern and should make a few.

    1. all of the actual parents I have asked are in agreement that the baprons should be Very Useful Indeed, so I have much hope that my dear friends will find them a helpful addition to Kestrels wardrobe... if there are little ones in your sphere of friends and family, the pattern and project is a really easy one to niche in between other sewing
