Mural Chai Apron Booth

So remember a few weeks ago when I was telling you all about how much a dug this mural near the Starbucks down town? Well I happened to run into the artist as he was working on finishing the piece up. He told me he had a blog, so I decided to check it out... Here is a cool shot of the final project, check out the site, there are some other really sweet pieces he is working on... (hopefully he doesn't mind the linkage)
Speaking of Starbucks (like the segway?) I just realized today that I have been wasting my money. All this time I could have been purchasing the $1.77 Tazo Chia tea, instead of the nearly $4 chia latte that takes FOREVER to be made. I like the tazo Chia much better, I can add as much honey as I feel, and just a dash of milk to cut down on the calories- That darn Starbucks, I have them figures out though- Guess if I would just make my tea at home I would save that much more money, but sometimes a girl just has to get out of the office... ya know?

Apron progress...
I FINISHED the apron.

I am pretty darn proud of myself. I have had a ton of fun making the thing, and am feeling much more confident on the good old sewing machine.
Sewing Machine
I am purchases some new material and will be making another few aprons similar to this one (that a few other patterns on my list including this and maybe a few of these)
New Fabric
I have a wedding shower this month and think that a garden themed present complete with a garden apron would be perfect for the bride to be.

I am still not done with the baby sweater I have been working on. I am so close, I just need to pick it up again. I am almost finished with the second tomato hat for my yoga girlfriend who is about 4 weeks away from meeting her new baby.

I have to get the scanner out so I can post a few pictures of Seattle photobooth madness tomorrow.... but here is a teaser just in case...
Space Needle Photobooth
Do you see how wet we are? It started to just dump as we came down from the needle and into the arcade- made us laugh even harder... love it. (this shot was inspired by this talented gal)

I haven't used my sewing machine in ages. Have you seen the "Apron Challenge" over at Tie One On? Every month a different theme to wrap your brain around.. I still haven't done one yet, but its a great excuse to play with fabrics.

I love the watermelon and ants -- it is so summery. I put a picture on my blog for you. :)

Wow, I'm loving those fabrics! While I'm not going to venture into sewing any time soon myself, I can totally see getting into amassing a fabric stash.

You made a picnic themed apron? How cute is that?!! From my view, it doesn't look wonky at all. So funny, second time today I came across that word. Good for you--keep sewing!
