Squid Apron Progress

So I've started, or nearly finished, my next apron. The spider aprons were a success, so now we move onto baby squid. The main part of the apron is finished, with the waist being hand sewn strips of ribbon. For the first time I used clear thread and it was so nice!! I gave the apron satin waist ties that looked super cute in a bow when I tried it on just before the photo. My favorite part still has to be the sushi fabric. I had to scour the internet for enough fabric to be able to make more than one apron, but it was worth it!! This weekend I'll probably start/finish the squid pocket and then take the apron for fancy Ambitious Misfit photos after the new year.

Wierdly Wonderful!!

Well, I'm super pumped and shocked. I've had my first piece in my Etsy Shop featured on the site, and it couldn't have been in a better article.

I guess one of the moderators goes around and finds weird stuff in the shops for the different seasons, and she featured the fruitcake!! The last couple days I'd noticed the painting had an abnormal amount of views and finally got smart enough to Google searched it, and WA-LA!! Featured in a quick little article located here:

Any attention to the shop is good attention, right? I won't worry unless it gets posted on Regretsy. :D
