Show & Tell Friday for April 3
For Show & Tell today, I thought I would share a few of my aprons. This first one was given to me by my friend Lynne. I believe she found it at a thrift shop. Isn't it pretty? Lots of work in this! Here is a close-up of the apron bib with its cross-stitched bird. Amazing! This is stitched on 22-count (or something even finer) material. I can't even imagine doing this stitchery. This red-checked apron was made for my son by his grandma when he was about 5. Now his daughters love to wear it when they help me in the kitchen! This child's apron was made by my grandmother. I think she devised this pattern herself. As you see, it goes over the head and ties on the sides. This would fit a 2-year old or possibly a petite 3-year old. And this child's apron (also made by my grandmother) is my favorite, because I remember that she had an apron made from this exact same material. The side ties for this are simply twill tape. Oh, and I just remembered this would be my grandmother's birthday. She was born in 1901! To see what others have shared for Show & Tell this week, go visit visit There is No Place Like Home and check out the links. It’s so much fun to see what others have to share!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
