                     About my new book...."The Apron Book"
I am just so excited about this book......
as I was reading through it.......
My heart was filled with wonderful memories.

I went to the cedar chest (that was once my parents) and took a trip down memory lane....

Wait, I would love for you to join me on this lets get going......

First I came across an small apron that my mother-in-law had made for our daughter when she was about 3 yrs old (she will be 38 Saturday the 12th), I even found a small piece of crayon still in one of the little pockets.

Then I came across an apron I had made our daughter when she was about 5 yrs old, it also had little pockets for crayons, pencils, small notepad and whatever else she wanted to put in them. You can tell I was not an experienced seamstress then, I did get better as the years went on.

Last but not least.........I found the little apron I made when I was about 8 yrs old and was in a Brownie Troop (kind of like Girl Scouts). This apron is made of domestic fabric and I decorated it with crayons and markers and even put my initials on it, as you can see on the waist band. This was my first sewing project.........Now that was a long long time ago! 

Wow! What a trip and I am glad you came along..............such sweet memories to hold on to. 

God Bless

Stay Warm & Safe

  8. Loving all the sweet comments. It seems we all think a lot a like....Great minds working together! This morning I got up and told my hubby that I was going to frame the little apron that his mother made for our daughter to give to her for her B-day because it was her FIRST one. Our daughter to this day still wears aprons when she cooks.

  10. Hi Linda!!!
    Thanks for stopping by today. I did forget about the "settee." LOLOL!!! So much charm in those names just like the charm of these beautiful aprons. I love aprons and tablecloths! They are the heart of the kitchen. Thanks for sharing.
    Have you looked at Somerset Studio's "Apronology" publication? I saw it yesterday at Barnes and Noble. Lots of apron eye candy!!
