Farmdale Apron!

despite the clouds and the rain
it has been a good day so far!

i had an order for an apron
so i made it up today.
when i saw the 'farmdale' fabric
that came in the post last week
i knew that it would make just the one she wanted..i hope, anyway!

after making so many cushions,
i felt a bit rusty making an apron..
but i think it turned out ok.

all the bells & whistles are here,
the selvedge detail
the embroidered 'if'' tag...

this baby is all ready to pack up
and go to a new home!

mr m is coming up to visit..yay
it's been a while since i've seen him
and kara, his dog, will be over the moon.

it's getting a bit chilly here as the afternoon wears on,
and there's not a ray of sunshine in sight
so i'm off to put on a woolly cardi
and i'll catch you later!

take care & have fun

  20. Hi Carol, I am sure that we all agree 100%+ that the lovely apron rocks. I would wear it even if I was not cooking that is just how great it looks the fabric print and colours are extra special. We in SA had the best weather this weekend gone. It is still nice, no rain for us.
    I am enjoying the sunshine. How fun is it that you forgot your makeup. You truly are a online
    dynamo we tend to use make up less and less!
    Have the best week, Sue

  25. Carol,
    I ran across this fabric the other day and said to myself, "That's Carol's apron!" I didn't get it then but am going to go back and buy it. Such a cute apple apron! Thanks for the inspiration!
