I blame Florence for distracting me today.
There I was happily taking things a little slower when I read her blogpost and suddenly realised I had to make Ruby an apron for one of her Chanukah presents.
So bang went my "I'm in control" day and enter "crap, I have to make this now" day.
I know Ruby will be delighted because she's been nagging me for a new apron for ages.
The problem is that one apron wasn't too much trouble (apart form a bit of unpicking because you are making it up as you go along - my usual style - rather than following a pattern), the problem started when I realised my nieces needed one too.
Well, they obviously don't need one and I do actually have other gifts ready for them, but they are all coming up over the holidays and since it usually includes a bake off session, then clearly, they do actually need one.
So what started off as my first slightly slower paced day in a long time, has ended just as crazy as the rest.
And I blame you, Florence!
