Apron entry…

When I first heard about this opportunity I got very excited about the idea making an apron to enter into the give-a-way…

I’ve had to just keep the ‘thought’ tucked away so I could get past some of the craziness of this week.

Since the deadline is December 1st, this morning when the ‘thought’ resurfaced to the front of my mind I knew that if I didn’t get it made today, it wouldn’t get made!

i made it using three vintage dresser scarves {that were gifted to me by Auntie Joy…thx. Joy}.  i then added a little linen tea towel that is sewn into the waist band and a vintage crocheted pot holder into the hem line…for that last minute hot-dish that needs to be removed from the oven…

It turned out great and I love it…and I’m SO hopeful that it will be a WINNER!

thanks to my brother Marcus for indulging me this afternoon to take some pics of it for me…

  14. So cute!!! And the red is the perfect accent color. You are so good at what you do. I hope you win. Gosh snow already. And I thought I got snow early in VA. I hope your mother is doing well. My first Thanksgiving without mine. It just is not the same. I guess that is why we have memories. Still sad…
