Vintage Apron Goodness

No more progress to show yet on the bowties quilt..


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!

That's a fabulous apron - and a wonderful memory!

You're absolutely right, it is an adorable apron. And such a treasure from your grandma. Dolly wants to know how Buster is doing today?

The apron is spectacular!! Maybe you need to hang it up in your sewing room!

Kathy said...

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 :)

What a cute little apron and so nice that you have it to remind you of your Grandma. She must have thought it was too special to use too.

Totally gorgeous! Not over-sold at all!

What a beautiful apron, so lovely for you to have special things to remind you of your Grandma. I love your bowtie quilt in the previous post too!
