i’m almost finished with my mother’s christmas present. it’s a froofy apron, she picked out the fabric months ago. i’m betting that she forgot all about this project. i’m pretty sure that she doesn’t read this, so it won’t ruin the surprise. and even if she did see this, she’d act surprised anyway because that’s what mothers do. this is the first time i’ve had to use a pattern and it’s gone pretty smoothly, only one or two hiccups.
