Ah, yes...this is the cold reality here in Indiana...freezing frost...it is beautiful though.
Anyway, back to my Tammy!! I used some little seed beads in a couple places for embellishment and left off the bathing cap from my stitchery...not sure why but it felt more "me" that way...
A closer look at the pinnie..
I used wool and tiny buttons to embellish...Cori's instructions made it so simple to make my first ever box pleats!!
The back of the pinnie is a great place to store pins or needles and any stray threads as you work...
Here is the back of my Tammy...
