A is for Apron


Photobucket
Well summer is already gone and spring has come back in our neck of the woods that certainly did not last long but alas that is the nature of spring it always seems to be playing tricks on us. We looked out our window today to find a very cold and gray day staring back at us. Even though it is winter in most parts of the country I like to think that spring has arrived here!!

Wyatt is doing very well recovering from his surgery. The Veterinarian did say though that he was not socialized enough, so we will have to start bringing him out more to be around people. He is fine with us but has started growling at people he doesn't know Yikes can't have that right!(I didn't say anything to the vet but Lucy does that too so I guess I will have to get her out more as well) I guess we will have to find Wyatt & Lucy some friends.

Well the gray skies and dreary weather made me feel like sewing something bright and colorful. And since Anna and I need no more clothing I figured I would sew an Apron. You can always use another apron right!
I used the book called A is for Apron and I made the Lorelei apron. I decided to line the apron with a lightweight cotton the pattern did not call for this but, I do this with all my aprons I find they are alot more sturdier and hold up better with a lining.
Here's how it turned out.

Now if only the sun would come out so I could go and see how this apron is in the garden!

Jeremiah 17:7

  5. Dear Heather,

    I agree, one can NEVER have too many aprons! Sometimes I have to wear two at a time when I don't want my nice apron to get messy :) .

    I'm glad that Wyatt is recovering well~I thought that dogs were supposed to growl at strangers? Maybe the vet will volunteer to take him out for socializing ;) !

    I hope the sun comes out for you soon~it's sunny here, but three below zero!

    Love,

  7. Good Morning Heather!
    Your apron is so very cute and how smart of you to line it for sturdyness! I have some material that I would like to make into an apron but it is so thin ~ I guess I will do like you and line it! Thanks for the practical idea!
    I had gotten that book from the library awhile back. I will have to order it again. I have such a short memory-it will be like seeing it for the first time all over again! ;~}
    I'm glad Wyatt is recovering from the surgery. (I growled at my surgeon after surgery, too! He was in a strange place with strange people so a little growling is to be expected, I think!)
    The sun has been shining brightly for the last 3 days, here at the farm, but nights are below freezing. Still alittle early for us to think about outdoor gardening, but starting seeds indoors is on the agenda for this week! Just enough time to make a new gardening apron!
    Blessings!
