Getting Up Early

It rained early this morning (about 3:30) so when we woke up at 6:30 the sky was all dark, but as the sun came up these peachy/gold tones sprinkled through the clouds. It's skies like this that make me want to get up early. I know 6:30 isn't early for most people, but lately it is for me. I like to think I'm a morning person because I really do like getting up early, but it doesn't mean I do. In reality we are night people and rarely go to bed before midnight. It's hard to be both.

I have lots to do today, but after I get my work done I would like to start on the apron that's been on the back burner for weeks now. I think I'm kind of afraid to start another sewing project. The blanket I made went well, but there's part of me that says that was beginner's luck. However, I have promised aprons to a few friends and a promise is a promise.

I'm either going to use this vintage pattern I have (love those pockets) or...




This one from Amy Butler's book In Stitches. The pattern is a little more simple, which might be good for the first try. Hopefully I'll have something to show tomorrow : )

I like the vintage one best. If you are going to wear an apron, you should look like June Cleaver.

I like the vintage one best, too but be prepared to take some time with those pockets, said the veteran seamstress.

Thanks Vallen. That is what I'm afraid of. I always choose the most difficult way to do something the first time I'm doing it. I will heed your advice.

I'm bucking the trend! I like the AB one. Partially because I am also a new sewer and I feel like I could make that one, lol. But the vintage ones are super cute.
