Here in Chicago we’re starting to pull things together for the much anticipated gardening seaseon (is it spring yet?), including taking stock of our gardening “stuff”. I was thinking – what better way to keep all of our tools in order than to stitch up a few organizers? It didn’t take me long to find a bunch of awesome tutorials and projects – and here are my favorites!
This year the day right before Thanksgiving is National Tie One On Day. Give an apron (or wrap an apron around a homemade baked gift) and pass it along to someone in need as a way to give thanks. We’re celebrating by sharing one of our favorite apron projects, the one yard “no-waste” apron.
Over the years, I’d noticed Thanksgiving talked about in terms more commonly associated with stress than joy. Remembering my mother’s absolute love of Thanksgiving as a day more than anything else of sharing and gratefulness, I embarked on a personal campaign to put the “give” back into Thanksgiving.

Spicing things up in the kitchen has never been so simple! The next time you’ve got something yummy to make, sport this charming two-tone apron and the compliments won’t be far behind. It’s easy to create, and a lot of fun to wear.
