WOW: WIP on... Thursday?

June 23, 2011

Abandoned book "At Risk" by Patricia Cornwell ♦◊◊◊◊

Well, it's not like you were actually refreshing your browser yesterday, anxiously awaiting the WIPs on Wednesday post, now, were you?

WIPs on Wednesdays

I really was working on something yesterday, though:

WWQSH ApronIt's an apron. Not just any apron, but the apron that is the uniform for our shop for the Western Washington Quilt Shop Hop.

Wow, that was a mouthful. Let's start again:

This week is the WWQSH. It's a big hurkin' deal - all (most) quilt shops in Western Washington, from the Canadian border to the Oregon border, are participating. 5 days long. 2,000-4,000 shoppers. We've been prepping for this for months.

All of the females* working this week (as in everyone who's EVER been on the payroll) are making/have made these aprons, using Tamara's Vintage Apron pattern, muslin & the Shop Hop feature fabric. We get to embellish them as we wish, as long as the embellishments feature a duck.

*Adam doesn't have to wear this kind of apron. He has a navy twill apron (but it still has a duck on it). There are limits to what the man will put up with, you know.

Prototype ApronSo, here's kinda how the apron will look when worn. This is my prototype apron, where I adjusted the fit a bit.

I really like the way the apron fits and I think it's fairly flattering - even though I'm not all that thrilled about the width of the body it's attempting to flatter.

WWQSH PocketNow, I have no idea why, but at the shop I'm known as The Diva.

(I'll wait a minute while you clean up the tea you just spewed, okay?)

Anyway, I decided to stitch "Diva" on the pockets. My embellishments (which will happen as soon as I leave the puter) will also be appropriately Diva-ish. You see, I have rhinestones.

Maybe on the way in to work today, I'll stop at Michael's & pick up a red feather boa. That ought to be a nice touch. (I considered a tiara, but haven't found one that's quite right...)

Okay, those rhinestones won't set themselves. Wish me luck!

What a cute apron - and the "Diva" is just perfect - and rhinestones - perfect. Love the boa idea - sounds like you'll have a fun time :o)

Well I must admit emitting an unladylike snort at the Diva comment LOL. You will certainly dazzle all those ladies when they come in. I wish I could be there :0)
