    Your aprons are so pretty! Would you mind sharing the source of your pattern for these?

    (Sorry!!! As soon as I posted this, I saw your response to another quilter's post!)

    Yes, I would also like to know your pattern! These are great looking aprons and I would like to make a few for presents. I love wearing an apron and this is a much better design than I have. My grandmother always wore an apron also and now I find myself wearing one oftener!! Your are so beautiful.

    Those are really cute and pretty Nice to see something of a different take on such a practical thing.

    I wear a pinnie (suppose that's just the same as an apron, though I kind of think of an apron as just from the waist down. Cultural difference ?) when I'm cooking, dyeing, doing anything messy to spattery.
    It saves a lot of stains, from grease to dye.

    My elderly Aunt wears one now when eating because as her eyesight fails and her hands shake more, she finds she ends up in a mess otherwise. The Auntie wasn't best pleased when the Uncle called it a bib though

    I love to wear an apron when I cook so I really need to fix myself and my GD some aprons. Gotta take time off from quilting.

    Beautiful aprons! I especially like the the yellow and blue one with the scalloped edge. Sigh!
    Do not worry about the past, for it is history,
    Do not worry about the future, for it is a mystery,
    Only live for today, for it is a gift, that is why it is called "the present."
