I'm off to the post office to send this apron to my swap partner. I enjoyed sewing this; I used the pattern from Bend the Rules Sewing, adding a towel loop as well.
After my errand, I'll be canning tomatoes. I'll be thinking about how articulate Eve Ensler is, too. If you're alarmed by the Republican VP candidate, you might want to take a look at Ensler's thoughts on her. If you love the self-proclaimed pitbull with lipstick, maybe Ensler's piece will help you understand why some of us don't care for her. I'm usually not a terribly politically-minded person, and I don't like to use my blog to talk politics, but this woman has been keeping me up at night, and this election may be the most important one in my lifetime. I know Obama is running against McCain, not Palin, but she's the one who seems to be energizing her party. She's the one really alarming me, and Ensler has explained why better than I'm able.
