I took everyone's suggestions to heart and finished the apron this way:
With both a pocket and a removable towel!
See the crooked buttons? Adds to the dorky homemade look!
Fringe treatment on the pocket.
Got the handles on the tote bag.
In other news, as I was working in my studio, I was greeted by a very dirty dog!
What is that schmutz on your face, Nick?
And those feet!! Where have you been?
Both dogs were out enjoying the day, but while Sassy sticks close by me, in case I feel like throwing toys for her, Nick, like boys of any species, runs off to explore. Well, I think he explored right up the hind end of the neighbor's bull! Nick has become a real country dog and he thinks poop of any sort smells beuuutifull and needs to proudly wear it like perfume! And I thought my days of cleaning up gross stuff went out with potty training!
These are for Catty Ax Lady who is in desperate need of sunshine!
Sunshine, on my shoulders, makes me happy...!
Although today's sun didn't pack much warmth, it should get back up into the lower 70's later this week!
And finally, since nobody suggested naming my new tiller Wanda Whoopass, I will defer to the most popular choice and call her Tilly!
