So I know that I promised pictures of the twins and my belly last week but time has just gotten away from me. I'm still not going to post a picture of my belly or the twins until tonight though because I need to have Tim take a picture of me. We are going to the temple tonight so I will be doing my hair and will have that "spiritual" glow when we get back. That will hopefully make for a good picture. : )
So I actually did finish my apron when I said I would (last Wednesday), but I didn't finish my other project to go with it until today. My one and only sewing machine needle snapped in three different places (how does that happen?). So I went to the store to get more on Saturday and then I left the needles in my wallet and left my wallet in the car which then went to work with Tim. It was all very frustrating, but I was able to pull my project together last night. This is a VERY good thing because I had to ship this by today for the wonderful apron swap that am in. I hope that my partner will like the apron and table topper I made (crossing-fingers). I picked the fabric and then the more I looked at it the more I didn't like it so I was worried. But...now that it is finished I really like it and wish that I didn't have to give it away!! : ( I always learn so much when I make a new project so if I keep doing new sewing projects maybe I will be a pro like my mom and pretty much her whole entire family!! But that will probably take a few years. : )

I had to pin my apron and table topper to the back of my couch because this apron is not flattering on me due to "the belly" and I didn't think having Tim wear it would be very flattering either.

The Apron

The Table Topper
The Treats
Well...thats it for now but I will have more pictures tonight or tomorrow morning.
