Eight

Eight is my number.  Somehow it manages to make an appearance in just about every aspect of my life.  My father, brother and I were all born on the 18th day of the month.  My birth date adds up to 8.  Telephone numbers, post codes, street numbers - the odds are they all reduce to the number 8.













So when I received a custom order to make some reversible aprons, it came as no surprise that eight were required.

 

I had such fun co-ordinating the fabrics...






















... and adding the finishing touches, such as decorative buttons ...






















... and flouncy frills.




















I finished the last apron today, St Patrick's Day.  That would be 17 March.  1 plus 7 equals 8.  Of course. 

I will have similar aprons for sale at the BrisStyle Twilight Market on 29 April, if I have time to come up for breath!

Brilliant, i'm a number 4 girl!!
Thanks for concern for my daughter's million dollar shoes, yes, home in perfect condition, meaning she possibly only walked 10km in them but assures me they were super comfortable. Love Posie
