Aprons!! I have to say that I never, ever used to think very much of them.......... and then one day that all changed - years later I still love them to bits!! I now make my own, (Voila - the 4 there sitting on my clothes line) ,since it's difficult to find the kind I like - all cotton, large pocket in the front, comfy around the neck..... and not having a way too big price tag attached!! I have quite a large stash of materials and I tend to use those to make up my aprons (hence sometimes the length may vary a little, as you can see in the photo LOL). I've made quite a number of them over the past couple of years............... and yet here I find I only have 4 here for my own use!!! As you can see........ all out on the line! Not a spare one in the kitchen drawer. Looks like I may have to do something about that! I find them great to give as gifts.......... a bit like making pot mits and crocheted dishcloths............... I need to remember to ensure I get my own stash together LOL However, right now, I'm busy working on items for Christmas giving..... since Christmas is but 39 days away!!
I find they really do save my clothes, especially when I just return home from work and have to start on making the dinner........ no splashes staining my clothes.
My aprons have been used for all sorts of things, because I wear them on home days when I'm busy cleaning or doing lots of household things.............. the pockets are great for holding eggs collected from the hen house - and yes, back when I had hens rearing young chicks, it was not unusual to find a baby chick or 2 in my apron pocket whilst I fixed up the mother hen, or picked up straggling chicks to return to the mum!
What do you think of aprons?
