Short 'n' Sweet!

good afternoon!

it's warm enough outside,
the sun is shining
but there's a cold breeze biting
and my fingers are freezing
and keep tripping over one another...
i think i need a pair of those fingerless gloves,
the keyboard keeps sucking the warmth out of them..brrr!

at least i was sitting in the sunshine
when i was sewing earlier...
so my brain didn't freeze..hehe!

this apron's short 'n' sweet..
kind of 'curly pops' colours i think!

mostly my aprons have length for long peeps
but this ones for the shorties.

there's a pocket there somewhere
and a teatowel loop as well...

and a delicious bit of white ricrac trimming the waistband!

light and summery
this fine cotton
was flouncing on the cool breeze...

sporting a hem trim purchased from 'beach vintage'!

the waistband is trimmer for the slightly slimmer
but the ties are just as long as ever...

in fact i think you could tie several kids
on to your apron strings with these!!

after taking these pics
i went around to the sunny side of the house
caught sight of these...

they are miniature chrysanthemums...
small 'n' sweet,
and just the right shade of pink
to match my apron!

i'm wishing you all
a sunshiney weekend with
warm hands
warm hearts...

ps..this one's into the 'madeit' shop too...just in case someone petite
wants an apron short 'n' sweet!

  8. What happy pretty colours Carol. Your apron is gorgeous, I love what you have done at the hem. And I love the light in your flower shot. Hope you have a great weekend.

  9. A gorgeous post Carol. That apron is way too delightful to use... I couldn't bear to get mess on it. It's more of an accessory for an outfit in my opinion. Beautiful coloured chrysanthemums, I don't think I've seen ones quite so rich and dark in colour. Have a lovely weekend Carol :o)
