For Sarah

While I was at the market the other weekend, I was next to a lovely stallholder named Sarah who was selling the most gorgeous shower caps (there's a photo here at Finki).


Sarah had a teatowel at home that was calling out to be transformed into an apron..... so she popped it into the post and it arrived at my house. The only rules were to stick to blue and black tones and definitely no floral!


Although 90% of my stash could probably be classified as floral, I did actually have some fabric in the stash that matched perfectly.


The moral of the story is - just because you don't cook, it doesn't mean that you shouldn't look stylish in the kitchen!

I love the tea towel choice! It was just waiting to become an apron wasn't it? I used to have a note book with a similar cover, it said something like - "Honey, you didn't marry me for my cooking." :)

Now that is one awesome tea towel and an even better apron. Well done Cam!

OK, too funky. And a bit of funky while cooking dinner would be a welcome distraction from the kitchen disasters that all too frequently occur...
