Started a new little Christmas project last night, though.. no pictures yet. Liking it so far, hope it turns out. A little table topper using a FQ that I had of Kate Spain's 12 days of Christmas.
So I have Quilter's A.D.D.? Does anyone else have this too?
No new quilty photos, but want to share this photo.. my mom brought me this little apron from my Grandma's. I don't know exactly when it was made, or who made it.. my Grandma sewed a lot, but she also had lots of things that her mom and her aunts sewed.
All I know is that it was made ages ago. Not a repro. And that it is sooo adorable--I LOVE navy and I LOVE polka dots. **swoon** I wish I had a skinny figure to show it off, but that all flew out the door after I had my son. ha!
If you love vintage aprons, you'd better sit down.. Here she is:
Okay, maybe I over-sold it. ha But it really is the cutest little apron I think I've ever seen. I never EVER saw my Grandma wear it, it feels brand new and delicate and fancy. She probably didn't want to get it dirty. ;) Neither do I. I think I'll just get it out once in a while and touch the fabric and *swoon* over it. :o) I know my Grandma is in a much better place now and not suffering but I sure do miss her!
I'm not so sure about ADD - but I do have a compulsive apron collecting/making problem, so today's post is delicious! I love the ones that have been passed on by family and friends, but even those with an unknown provenance conjure stories and questions that keep me amused :)
Your Grandmother's apron is adorable! You say you never saw her wear it, but it's flirty - she may have worn it before she was a Grandmother, or a Mother! Can you imagine your Grandmother as a young woman, wearing it to be flirty with her young husband? Now that's sweet :)
