...the home of a Minuteman...
...and Valley Forge. Hope you're enjoying our hard fought & hard won freedom today.
My knitting is at a minimum (again) due to a little flare-up with my arm.
I've seen so many aprons on different blogs lately that I caught the bug myself & made this one. It's a bit frou-frouie, but it was fun to make, anyways. The fabrics are all from Hobby Lobby. I got the idea for this one here. I used the tie pocket pattern at the link for the pocket, and went here for a tutorial on a basic half apron pattern. There may be better one out there, but that's what I used. There are lots of apron patterns & ideas here if you'd like to make one yourself. I've a pattern for a more serviceable style on the cutting board right now.
A closeup of the pocket...now let's get to cooking, Y'all. :)
Day lilies that we transplanted from the old home place in Virginia where Goodman grew up.
LOVE your china, very cute apron and your wonderful day lilies. I love lilies. That a great link with all the apron patterns. Thanks :)ReplyDelete

I am so jealous of that apron! It's beautiful! I'm sitting here now contemplating TRYING to make one myself...key word here being trying. lol It will never be as pretty as that one. :( *want, want, want*
