and it’s back to the dish soap aprons

I sewed up some new dish soap aprons last night:

I decided that I don’t really enjoy sewing up these little aprons, because I’m not so good at tiny stuff. However, I do like aproned dish soap better than nekkid soap, so there you go.
And I’m probably the last to know about the Polaroid-o-nizer, but how cool is it?

There’s Peter enjoying a sandwich from the Pastrami King at the Hillsdale Farmers’ Market. I found out about the Polaroid-o-nizer from Anh-Minh‘s blog. I always learn about the greatest stuff from her site!
And lastly, I am FINALLY working on a new banner. This has proven very difficult, since I can’t do a thing in Photoshop or Illustrator. My little super eggplant hero from my old banner came from Jessica‘s husband Wes, and I love that little guy, but I thought a new banner would be a nice change. So, for all you graphic experts out there, can you tell me how to get rid of those little white triangles at the outer edges of the banner? Should I just eliminate the purple background and go with white? What do y’all think?
Peter and I are headed up to Washington for a couple days, but we’ll be back Wednesday evening. Betcha can’t wait, ha ha. Maybe I’ll find some green shoes or a full slip up there, or at least some Swedish meatballs …

    I just moved to Portland on Saturday, and went to the Hillsdale Farmer’s Market on Sunday! The Hood strawberries were amazing, and I don’t know if I’ve had better, huger (?) blackberries. Wow. I’m a veg, so I didn’t try the pastrami, but I did cheat and have a Swedish meatball in Sweden this year. You know, when in Rome….
    Good luck with your shopping!

    I was admiring your dish soap apron at the BT party. Very cute. Have fun up in WA.

    I can tell you how to get rid of those little white triangles. Just figure out what color your purple is and color in the triangles the same purple. :)

    You may not see this in time, but I highly recommend a new huge Asian store called “H Market” at the NW corner of Pacific Hwy and S 312th in Federal Way. This is just a few minutes from I5. Take the 320th exit, head west on 320th, right on Pacific and then at the light at 316th turn left into the parking lot. H Market is at the north (to the right) end of the complex. This is a little bigger than the Beaverton Uwajimaya and while there does not seem to be as much stuff crammed in there, they seem to have more candy. They have a lot of Pocky’s stuff.
    Two weeks ago I was up there and discovered they had finally opened. I have another businees trip up on Thursday and can’t wait to go back. It’s not often I look forward to a business trip, but the sale at Ikea also helps.
    I hope you make it to H Market sometime, based on what I have read of your blog, I think you will really enjoy it.
    Have a safe trip.

    Thanks for the polaroid-o-nizer link. Now I have a really dumb question…how did you save the image once you made it? I’ve tried and tried, but after I save it I can’t get it to open (wrong format). Any advice?

    Cute aprons!

    Is there a pattern for the dishsoap aprons? I like making tiny stuff and they are cute. :)

    tell the background of the header (but not the body) to have an orange background – then you won’t see the white triangles (same way the sidebar has an orange background)

    Dish soap aprons??!!!??? Now I’ve seen everything! They are so so so very cute! I’ll have to figure out how to make one (& I really don’t know how to sew,but am determined to learn) because I don’t think I can live with nekid soap bottles anymore….
