My mother-in-law always wore an apron in the kitchen.
She dressed in hose, heels and dresses or skirts everyday.
So she had lots of aprons.
She made most of them herself.
She, as well as the ladies in her church would sew aprons for the church bazaar.
I pulled out three green ones to use this month.
All of them have charming hand sewn details.
Ric Rac and cross stitch
Tiny little cross stitches are made in the checks with yellow and green floss.
Someone spent a lot of time and love on this one.
I hang them on the chicken wire pantry doors.
Sometimes one gets tossed on the island....
...or just hung on a drawer knob.
But they all get a little more love.
I think the ric rac I used to trim the doggie's cookie jar was some of that old ric rac.
Now I have lots of pretty handmade aprons.
