While surfing blogs yesterday I came across Confessions of an Apron Queen. What a neat blog! I got caught up in reading it and before I knew it a whole hour had passed. She also has a site where she sells vintage items: Rick Rack Attack. I could spend a lot of money shopping there, but I don't think DH would appreciate it right now. Although I do have my sights set on this apron. Maybe I'll wait until payday later this week to buy it.
Do you wear an apron when you cook? I confess I never used to wear one. I remember my grandma wore aprons all the time. I vaguely remember a red and white gingham apron with chicken scratch embroidery on it she used to wear. I wish I would have been smart enough to take it when she went into the nursing home years ago.
Aprons are making a comeback. When I had some friends over for a sewing day in March I couldn't decide what I wanted to work on. After spending an hour digging around my sewing room I decided to make myself an apron. I used a pattern I received when I bought fabric from Fabric Depot. Here I am with my teapot apron getting ready to make cookies for the ladies.
One of my on-line groups had an apron swap earlier this spring. Here's the apron I got in the swap. Lots and lots of coffee fabric just for me.
I confess I still don't always wear an apron, but I'm working hard on remembering to put one of them on. Someday it will become a habit to put one on when I step into the kitchen to cook.
Do you have aprons to share?
