I have been working on a few aprons this week to be sent off to women in Missouri whose lives have been affected by tornadoes that went through their community on May 10th. If you want to know more, you can find the information at Lucy's blog or click on the Apronista link in the sidebar and go to the forums to read the thread that Lucy started.
Today was National Wear Your Apron Day. It's 10 p.m. here and I still have mine on. My son insisted I remove it to go out to the store with him this afternoon. He's no fun :o( I wore my smock apron made from this pattern. I'll replace the pattern photo with the real apron if I remember to get a picture.
It's time to sign up for the next Flirty Apron Swap. The theme of this swap is 'Celebrating Independence'. Shawnee has arranged another contest with a great apron prize. If you want to join in on the fun, click on the link in my sidebar. But hurry, sign up ends May 15th.
I made these aprons for a swap called 'I made it myself in your favorite color' on Swap-Bot. The main fabric is called "Chef's Choice Check" and I found it in the home dec fabrics at Joann's. The solid red and the gold calico were from my stash as was the rick rack. I used Simplicity pattern #4692.
I'm so glad you stopped by for a visit. I began blogging to share my love of aprons. Now I use my blog to share all the things I love.
I learned to sew when I was 11 years old and it's still my favorite hobby. I adore vintage everyday items. I can spend hours poking around a flea market or antique store. I am a stay at home mom, and after homeschooling my son for seven years, I'm finding more time to craft and sew. I have been happily married since 1991. I live in the town I was born in and most of my family live only minutes away.
