I've been away too long

I've lost my knitting mojo. I haven't knit for quite a while. I started a sweater from one of the Jo Sharp Knit pattern books but could not bring myself to start the sleeves. I finished one "monkey" sock and am about two-thirds done with the second one. I can't bring myself to finish that one either.

Instead, I've been sewing. Let's go back. My husband gifted me with a Bernina serger (model 800L) for Christmas. It sat unused for quite a while but no more.

I've finished the Amy Butler "Sophia" handbag. It took quite a while and was somewhat tedious. But it turned out well, at least on the outside. I'm not so pleased with the lining so would change a couple of things next time around -- assuming there is a next time. Pictures later.

I finished a flowered, knit dress, which I like to call my mumu. I will post pictures of that too.

For now, here are pictures of an apron I made for my sister. The pattern is from Hoodie, and it's a fully reversible circular apron. I loved how it turned out!! The fabric was from Fabric Depot -- a huge mindboggling place with too many options. I believe the fabric designer was Michael Miller, but don't quote me on that. This is side 1...

Followed by pocket detail of side 1...

And side 2, with pocket detail...
