Little Peek-a-boo watching over my little apron.
Crazy for Polka Dots....
Sweet little homemade apron...
I really do love ironing my vintage aprons...when ever I add a new-old apron to my collection, I hand wash it in lavender water and then hang it to dry. But ironing it is when I get to bond with it, to see all the little stitches, tiny tears & stains. I enjoy looking at how it was constructed, and wonder who the Mystery seamstress was that loving created this apron. Was it a Home Ec project, a gift for a special someone or just an apron for the sewers own use?
I have well over 80 aprons in my collection, some vintage, some new, some store bought & some hand made. Each one is so very dear to me.
I recently attended the "Washington State Quilters" quarterly meeting when a dear lady who new I collected aprons brought me a bag, & in the bag where 3 darling aprons. She said she new I collected them and came across these at an Estate Sale, the 3 cost her all of a dollar! How sweet of her to think of me, to buy them for me.... see, "Apron Strings", tie us together in friendship!.
While in my sewing room today, I heard a familiar sound, one I haven't heard since this past summer....I guess my dear husband just couldn't wait for Spring to go play so he went out to his ManCave, got out the ATC and played in the snow....I was content to play in my sewing room, Thank you very much! lol!
