Folks Dance

I have finally caught up with the orders I received from the Daily Candy post. We all recovered from the nasty virus that is going around, so I have had a little time to get some new aprons working. Part of the fun with each new apron is designing the page for the website. Each apron page is a little different, designed to highlight whatever is special about that style. I love the border on this gray fabric. I only have enough fabric to make two of these - I wish I had more so the page would have a longer life, but I love this apron so I want to get it out there!

Next on the agenda is to finish the aprons I am designing for a pie shop called PIE in downtown Chicago. They would like aprons to sell in the shop, and possibly aprons for the employees to wear. I have a couple of cute half aprons, but I still need to design a full apron for a man to wear. I went to Vogue fabric yesterday and found a beautiful butterscotch color cotton with a little heft to it - I think it will work nicely for that one. Will post those designs soon.

Darling fabric! I wish I had your skills for a website- it's like Greek to me! One of these days...

Thanks Kim! - Web skills are not my forte, but my website is pretty basic - each page is a jpeg with hot spots (links) added in Dreamweaver! - The buying button has to be off the page - which is a little strange, but doesn't seem to deter people.

Thanks catslye! - I have been having a lot of fun - my February is so much the better for it!!

Vogue Fabric! Oh, one of the many, many things I miss about Chicago! Love the new apron and can't wait to see how the whole PIE business turns out.
