Last weekend I went to Whimmydiddle (Wow, Scott City needs a new picture) with Katrina and family. It's always fun for me to see what people are making and selling, but sometimes I have trouble buying things because I know I could probably make it myself. This is not an attitude that supports crafters though, so I decided on this trip I would buy something...for myself! Because I rarely actually make things for myself, though that's something I'd like to change.
So I wandered by Lilac Lane and really liked her color and fabric choices, and talked with her a little bit about what it's like to make lots and lots of the same thing (the reason I don't think I could ever be a professional crafter. I don't like to do things more than once).
And I bought myself an apron! (I am still continually fighting myself, as I think of people that I could give it to, but I'm going to try my best to keep it. I probably ought to hurry up and stain it).
I also got a couple of other things, but they're little gifts, so they're secret-y.
