We Interrupt this Knitting Blog

This one's for Bonnie! Now those of you who know me and have been reading my blog for any period of time will know that I never post sewing projects. There is a very simple explanation for that - I can't sew! But alas on a trip to Joann's with my daughter I saw the cutest pattern for a rooster apron. We were going to a holiday dinner hosted by a friend who collects chickens. I thought it would be the perfect hostess gift. So I asked Miss K if she would sew it. I needed another project like a hole in my head but sure enough, we took it home, cut it out and put it together. The ruffle was a bit troublesome so we had to call in the cavalry. That's right - MOM to the rescue. Turns out the instructions were wrong on that part but she got it together and if I do say so myself it turned out to be adorable. Our friend loved it and wore it all evening.

We also went up to Marin on Saturday for our family holiday dinner. It never ceases to take my breath away when we drive up to San Francisco, turn the corner and there you see the Golden Gate Bridge. Truly one of the most spectacular sights around. It was a beautiful, crystal clear day. I just wish I could have spent the afternoon taking photos.

I hope everyones holiday preparations are going well and that you have a joyous and love filled holiday.

So now I see... not only did Mom give away the wrong daughter (me), somehow you ended up with what should have been my daughter!! Seriously, she did a fantastic job!!!

Can't wait to see you on Saturday!!

Happy Holidays Allison!

That IS a cute apron.

As a native San Franciscan, I tend to take things like the GGB for granted.

I'm with you. Every time we come around that bend, the bridge is just glorious: sometimes bright and clear, sometimes swathed in bright clouds. I love it.
