I love aprons! Somehow just wearing one makes me feel like the virtuous little housewife I'm not.
I recently took part in an exchange on Rhonda Jean's blog and enjoyed making an apron for my partner.
Sadly, I never did hear from my partner if she liked the apron I made and I didn't receive one from her either.
Here's a picture of the apron I made and a close up of the little stitchery label I did inside.
I used Thimbleberries prints for both the main and contrast fabrics.
On a happier note my lovely friend Christie in Kentucky sent me the most gorgeous apron "just because" along with lots of other little goodies.
As well as the apron was a FQ of Hoffman fabric specially designed for the Heart of Kentucky shop hop in Oct.07 The fabric is in gorgeous shades of aqua printed with horses and Christie had also hand painted the most adorable little wooden horse that just makes me smile.
Other goodies were a keepsake needle card, a tin of quilting girl mints, envelope seals, two skeins of variegated thread from Puerto Rico, and a gorgeous scented candle that made everything smell of red velvet cake mmmmmm
Christie personalised the inside of the apron with a lovely message (if you want to read it click the picture for a better view) and the front of the apron is all stitched with decorative machine stitches around all the edges and the contrasting pocket.
It's absolutely my favourite apron and makes me feel capable of any culinary masterpiece while wearing it! Thank you so much Christie for being such a lovely friend.
