Dear Cjane,

Hello! My name is Cindy. I am an English major at the coolest school ever (well, okay, one of them!). I frequent the Blogworld on nights when the homework load is light... or, light enough to ignore. This morning as I rolled out of bed and shut off my roommate's alarm clock, I knew that I had to send you an email.

I know that Apron Week is well and truly over. What can I say? I'm a little late on the bandwagon this time (and my camera flash card committed dramatic suicide). Still, I couldn't resist sending in my own apron picture. Why? Well, I confess: It's because I'm ever-so-slightly a show-off. And ever-so-slightly competitive.

You see, two weeks ago, I owned no apron. This was a bit of a dilemma, as I am (sort of) famous in my apartment complex for my muffins. Sure, I could have borrowed my roommate's apron, but it was flourescent and clashed with most of my wardrobe. (How is one supposed to cook desirable food when one clashes with oneself?) Luckily for me, I just so happened to see your post on how to make an apron. Aha! I thought. This is it! But, because I knew that I needed a full-coverage affair, your suggestion would not quite work.

The creative cogs began rotating in my head, and within twenty-four hours I dragged a friend to Wal-Mart to help me pick out bandanas and ribbon. A little while and some creative stitching (I do not, in fact, possess a sewing machine) later, I had a fabulous full-coverage apron. One that doesn't clash with my clothes.

And so, enjoy the picture - and thanks for the inspiration.
