what am i? some sort of apron saleswoman?

Apparently so, at least for the day. My mother-in-law asked me to make aprons for a function she was hosting. They like to have a few locals selling handmade items during their luncheon. I was asked to do this back in January. When did I get started? Yesterday. As soon as my sister left, I headed upstairs to my studio (ehem, our bedroom) and pretty much sewed for most of the day. So today, I'll be sitting behind a table lined with a few aprons, knitting, watching happy women drink martinis for lunch! :)

A big THANK YOU for making my sister feel so welcome out in the blogosphere! She now thinks bloggers are the best too!

It just proves you can do anything even if time is limited! I admire your passion for sewing and helping.

They are perfectly lovely! Hope you enjoy your day - perhaps they may offer you a martini too (although it may not mix well with the knitting).

I was just admiring The Apron Book in B&N the other day wishing that I knew how to sew.

The aprons are lovely! Have you ever considered an Etsy shop? I'm not in the business of telling people what to do but I'd bet you'd do great.

Leslie - I HEART those cherry aprons! Have I ever mentioned I grew up on a cherry orchard? I still refer to it as "our place" when I talk about the farm. We have cherry everything around here, and those are adorable. You a so freakin' crafty!

Have you read the book, "The Apron Book." I heard the author, EllynAnne Geisel, speak this week. She brought a portion of her collection of vintage aprons.
Loved your aprons.
