A minor Christmas miracle occurred, because I finished all of my Christmas crafting!
As I mentioned earlier, my mom left behind a lot of fabric when she died suddenly this past summer, and some of it was clearly intended for the kids. Abigail, in particular, has expressed great sadness over not being able to do the things Grandma promised her, and especially that Grandma didn’t finish the turtle dress that was in progress. Unfortunately the pattern and the rest of the fabric were lost, but it was important to me that I finish something that I could give to Abigail as a gift from me and my mom this Christmas.
I decided to make an apron because I thought Abigail would use it often, wouldn’t outgrow it too quickly, and that it would remind her of the fun times she’d had cooking with her Grandma.
The lining is from my stash, yellow with daisies, which reminds me of both my mom and Abigail and their mutual love of the outdoors and all things yellow.
I think she likes it!
I’m so glad that I was able to do this for her.
