I love wearing aprons. I remember my mom and her aprons when I was little, they carried in vegetables from the garden, baby chicks to come in and get warmed up, kept her clothes clean as she cooked and did house work. An apron makes me feel connected to the past.
Wikipedia says an apron is a functional accessory that layers over ones outfit to protect ones clothes and skin from incidental stains and marks. To me they are so much more.
My aprons get a lot of use and get pretty stained and worn looking, so after winning a new apron from My Mother's Apron Strings, I decided it was time to make a couple of new aprons. This way they can be changed out each day and stay nicer looking longer. Found a cute board to hang them on, I enjoy walking by and seeing them just hanging there.
The apron with cherries on it has seen better days, but just can't bring myself to give it up yet! The pattern I used is quick, easy and fun to make.
While waiting for my Girl Scout Cookies I made some Chocolate Peppermint Cookies you can find the recipe here.
No longer have to wait for the once a year Thin Mint Cookies, I'm not sure if that is a good thing:)
Would love to hear if you have a favorite apron.
