...I'm really not sure if I'm referring to the man or the apron.
Chris was kinda bummed (I think) that my Dad got an apron before he did. Granted, I had to get something for Dad for Father's Day this year. Since he was retiring and Mom was insisting that he "pull his weight" and do some grilling on a regular basis, I made him a "manly" apron. All camo. All the way. (I'll post pics of that once I get some decent ones taken. Camera phone didn't cut it that day...)
Anyway, Chris cooks for a living and cooks a lot at home. *giggle, giggle* We're shacking up now. "Home" is now the same for both of us...
Okay, I got off track here. I think Chris assumed he would get an apron first, but he was too nice to whine about it. A few weeks back, I drug him to the fabric store. He was (fairly) patient and got rewarded with the fabric of his choice for making his apron. This is what he chose:
Flaming. Chili Peppers.
Despite this (just kidding, honey!) I agreed to stitch it up. I was recalling the pattern from memory as best I could. I left the book at home while at the studio. It's from this book by Martha Stewart. I adjusted because Chris didn't want neck ties - just a loop.
AND if he wishes, he can wear it like this:
He's wearing it now. Because he's in the kitchen. Making dinner. Barefoot.
Yeah, that's right: I keep my man barefoot and ... bald?
PS - I stitched up something else today, too! But that will have to wait for another post. I don't want my "craft it forward" buddy to see it until she has it in hand!
