UPDATE: As Promised, PHOTOS!!
You know what I love MOST about this apron? It is practically repurposed! I have had this fabric for several years. I really can’t remember how long. I have been intending to make me an apron from it forEVER. But when I started digging though my fabric for something pretty yet serviceable for this Apron Fest ’09 apron, this fabric practically leaped out of the box at me! I have washed and dried it several times to soften it. Oh it is going to be OH SO hard to part with! It also is serving as a template to my ongoing work on “My Perfect Apron”.
Good Luck EVERYONE!!

Just thought I would share a little apron love with you this Saturday morning.
You can find it over in my etsy shoppe!
Also, isnt this a find! A very nice copy of American Family Magazine from May 1952.
You may or may not know how much I love magazines from the 50′s and 60′s. This one is just terrific. I will be sharing some of the insides with you in future posts. I meant to post is on Mother’s Day since it is the Mother’s Day issue but somehow let it slip by. When I was uploading pictures this morning to add the apron to my etsy I found the photos of this magazine. I just love the cover!
I am also very VERY happy to report Benjamin was eating a little bit by last night. Some scrambled eggs and mashed potatoes. He has plans for pancakes this morning. AND he didnt have any pain medication yesterday afternoon. I insisted he take a dose at bedtime along with his antibiotic which by the way just might be the most foul smelling (and he says tasting as well) thing I have ever encountered! It is rough!
That’s about it for this morning! Have a wonderful Saturday. OHHH I forgot to tell you Rachel has a Summer job working as a cashier at the local grocery store. She pretty excited. And she starts driver’s ed week after next. My chicks are growing up!
