To my family, I am a person with many aprons, yes, aprons. I wear them almost always when I am cooking and also when I am baking. I enjoy making pies and breads and seem to get lots of flour everywhere. I have a great time and my aprons show it. I have about eight hanging on a large hook in my kitchen pantry. I also have two hanging on a nice hook in my "glamper" so I can have them while cooking, even over a camp fire.
Recently I pulled them all out and washed and hung them on the outside line to dry. They looked so pretty that I took some photos and will try to download one on this post. As I am not that knowledgeable about the process, I will tell you that I will try.
Today I had the wonderful privilege of spending the day with my 12 year old granddaughter and her mother, my wonderful daughter in love, Kathy. Kathy had asked me to come help Alorah sew an apron for her Project Fair sewing project. She has made many wonderful things, but Kathy felt that in my helping Alorah sew this apron, we would also make memories. And, I must say we did. We had some great conversation, and laughed and even had lunch together along with her mother and brother.
Alorah, soon to be 13, still likes Grandma time, and I feel blessed. The memories we made today will stay with me always. I will enjoy seeing her wear her apron. I even got a few scraps of the fabric to put into my next crazy quilt. As I had just made a really nice full apron, I wore it to visit them. This helped me with earning my badge on aprons with Mary Jane Farms Sisterhood. It also was fun to do. I also wore this apron to my knitting circle to show it off as it is so very special. The print is "aprons" and I purchased this print from our local famous quilting shop in Hannibal, Missouri. It is called "Hickory Stick" and has been featured in quilting magazines. I did note that they had similar fabric at Hobby Lobby, so check it out and have fun making your own apron. Really, they are fun and fancy, and very useful.
