Going, Going, Gone!

We had a service auction for a Relief Society party tonight. Everyone was supposed to bring a service or item to be auctioned off (purchases made with points awarded for random stuff). I couldn't decide what to make/take/do. At first I made these scripture covers. I thought they were pretty good, but when I showed them to my hubby he asked where the pen holder was (he didn't mean to sound critical, but....). So, I did take one to the auction, but I will save the post on that until I have it all figured out (pen holder and all), plus I forgot to take a picture.

So, today during nap time I thought I'd give this apron a try. It was a pretty easy apron to make. I decided to use a rolled hem on my serger to speed things up, but it is a totally doable project with out one. It took about 1 1/2-2 hrs. to make, and I got to use up some of my scraps.
Now, about those scraps, I am trying really hard to put things together that don't "match" but still "go". What do you think? Does it work? I noticed while digging in my stash that I seem to like the muted, earth tones more than bright, vibrant ones. Maybe I'll have to work on that.

When I got home tonight, Kent asked what I had got at the auction. Well, I didn't actually bring anything home. I am in the Presidency and was busy with other stuff. (No, don't be sad) I actually got the best prize of all, my apron went for the top sell. (Not that it was a contest) Sometimes it's nice to know that other people like your stuff... even if there aren't any pen holders on it :)
