I was just browsing through some sewing blogs and came across this one,http://belladia.typepad.com/crafty_crow/2009/07/giveaway-monday-apron-patterns-from-pretty-ditty.html and couldn't resist putting my name in the hat. Maybe, I'll be lucky!!! I feel lucky!!!

After getting excited about entering in a give away, I was inspired to sew my niece an apron for her birthday. I plan to make a matching apron for her sister t00! It took me about 1/2 day to sew. You'll probably noticed my mistake right but I decided to leave it and learn again from my mistake!!!! The pocket material should be running vertically to match the lining of my apron but oh well....I doubt a 4 year old will notice or care! She'll be excited to get a package from Auntie Kim!

This is my first give a way that I'm trying to win!!! I am new to the blogging world and very excited to meet new people; especially women who have the passion to sew. You are actually the firstblog I have ever written a response to. I have been sewing for just a little while (about 2 years). Aprons were one of the first projects I made!!!! I hope to post pictures of them soon...I just love aprons...They are so much fun to make and also fun to wear. I have made three so far as presents and everyone adores them. I have enjoyed looking at your blog; seeing all your ideas!!! It makes me want to go to the fabric store, purchase some great material and start sewing another apron!!! You are a great motivator.

This is where I first learned about bloging. One day I goggled sewing and someone's blog was listed and I opened it. I was so thrilled to find so many women passionate about sewing!! It was like opening a great book. I can only hope to be accepted into this new world I found. I am not a great writer but hope that my excitement will help make up for any of my lack of skills. When I read the blogs from this site, I can't help but feel like I belong. It's interesting to find so many women around my age who love sewing!!! I would be thrilled to be accepted into this sewing circle and encourage women who feel the same way I do to start here...... I have added my blog site to this list and hope to be listed within a couple weeks....Happy Sewing Everyone :)
This was my very first sewing project. Well, it's really not my very first one. While in high school, my first experience in sewing was not that pleasant!! But, I have heard that from many women that they too had a bad experience so I don't count it!!! The great news....I still wanted to learn to sew...I just needed to let go of my history with sewing. I don't believe this was a bad start! This blanket was made for my niece and her stroller. It was the perfect size for a toddler.
