Mommy studying Medical Terminology… yay for Winter… break?
Duncan. Sitting. Pretty much all he did those days.
Olivia learning “The Way of the Church Ball”.
Me, again, more homework. Looking for Medical eponyms online… fun… I didn’t realize that I looked like such a DORK when I studied.
Kyla & Livy’s aprons

Kyla & Livy’s aprons

I pieced these together from some gingerbread fabric I had in my stash. The panel is a “Grandma’s Gingerbread” recipe panel, super cute. The girls are about a week apart and became buds as soon as they met. We can’t wait to move closer to everyone!

Of course – there always has to be some factor in child photos. This time we had quite a few – the lighting was great but we were sitting on the wrong side of it all, so the photos are massively washed out, but still cute. The aprons were pretty quick to make since they were so tiny but piecing everything together took a few minutes to figure out.

Silly Kyla had her fingers in her mouth [honestly, I’m amazed Liv didn’t have hers in her own, as well] and Liv just kept giving me this deer in the headlights stare. That’s what you get for putting aprons on two 2-year-olds in a room of 20 people and telling them to put their arms around eachother… and POSE. Ha, yeah right, Mom.

I made Kyla’s a pinch longer, as she’s a pinch taller than Liv. This is about as close of shot as I got that shows the pleats up front and cute little body shots of the two of them. But of course – they’re expressions [giggle] are just hilarious. Oh well, they’re still cute.

Cameron’s BYU apron

Cameron wanted an apron after I finished the aprons for Danine (his mom), Livy, and Kyla (his niece) for Christmas. So we down to the Jordan Landing Walmart and this is what he picked.

The next day, while he was at work, I whipped this up…

He’s so proud of it. Loves it. And I am too! We used two yards and it was interesting drafting a pattern for a man who’s 5’10” versus me, a woman who’s 5’2″… LOL, it was quite a difference. But I altered and messed around with my normal melissa-made apron pattern to make it more manly – it all worked out.

A shot of the pocket. Since the print was so busy I decided to match it right on and it worked perfectly. I doubled the top stitching to add a bit more to it. I’ll definitely be making more of these. 😀 He needs a print with veggies and knives on a cutting board or something. Because -duh- he’s my chopper when we cook together.

This bib was made with the remainder of the yardage. We used almost the full two yards for length – makes me feel REALLY short – but there was enough for a matching bib for Duncan.
