I have finished reading the book.
When I was sixteen I worked in a restaurant as a dishwasher , and in my early twenties I worded in a kitchen at a hospital.
Its not the life for me. I would not thrive in an environment like that. I will give you my book review after I meet with the ladies, but for now, lets talk sewing.
I made the “apron dress” using one of my aprons as a pattern. Basically its two aprons joined at the shoulders and my neighbour likes the design (because she is always wiping her hand on the back of her rear end – me too, when cooking.)
I bought this McCall’s pattern…which is basically a glorified pj pant pattern – but I went for the no side seam idea…and thought I will use this pattern again…and I likely will…for pjs! I’m kind of getting tired of buying patterns..I really need to learn how to make my own.
very comfy pants……Im happy I made them. I thought the hounds tooth was cool for fall.
It was hot today (photo shoot over cast skies) , so I wore a white t-shirt. I bought the hat at a local restaurant supplier who sells to the public too……for six dollars. I am questioning wearing it to the lunch meeting.
When I was young and worked as a dishwasher my mother made me about three nice aprons to wear…………..and let me tell you, I loved those aprons. I still like the look of an apron……….I should wear them more often. Perhaps I will.
This apron is actually a light loose woven wool………its not going to get cleaned. likely a wear it once deal- that’s fine……. He has a sexy nude pic with some large veggie held in the front……..I behaved myself ;~ )
I love the lining and think that is fun fun fun.
I might have to tone this down…….or add more jewelry or something (we shall see) to the lunch……I wouldn’t want to be hauled into the kitchen for taking too long of a break! Actually the pants and a white top would have done the trick. anyhow …
I have been watching chef shows of Netflix.
I didn’t know chefs wore clogs…….this was new to me. Luckily I have a pair so that worked out perfect.
anyhow………I just really wanted to say a hello to my TWO blog followers. Hi Kate and Stephanie ha ha…..
and now…..Im going to subject you so some photographs from my flickr flash backs and of themed dinners. Here they come…..
Everyone’s Birthday…….and we all got gifts! Hands down their favorite !
Cat in the hat theme……yes……….I really had to get creative for that hat!
Ground hog day theme
I drew different themes from a pot, one every week for the next theme. It was fun fun fun!!! and let me tell ya……..I learnt some things, about different things from countries to food. I think we did this for about two years……..I had a blast!
Back to today
