Summer Apron...

g'day!
 
isn't it lovely
when you get to the end of a little list
&
the last item
gets a big tick.
 
this summer apron
has got the tick of approval from it's new owner
so i'm happy too.
 
 
 
blue skies and sunshine
are the essence of summer
don't you think?
 
...not to mention
sprigs of fresh green with tiny red buds...
 
how could i not be energised
sewing this sweet combination of fabrics?
 
 
the details make sewing fun...
 
cute buttons & a bit of selvedge
ric rac trim
'if' embroidery tag
 
all wrapped up in a bow!
 
 
 
tailored to fit
a standard sized dining room chair..hehe!
 
i'm hoping this sweet monday
is the start of a sunny week for you all...
 
 
naturally Carol xox

  9. It does look totally Summery Carol and it's also one of my favourite colour combinations. Such a pretty little piece, too nice to get dirty kitchen marks on it... maybe a good one for display only! xo
