The Apron Fairy Visited!!

Lookie what the apron fairy left on my doorstep!

I was shocked and totally ecstatic when I opened the package!!!

This apron is on my list of to dos!! What a great idea on hemming. I never would have thought of doing it this way. Look closely at the hem. This apron artist did a facing as a hem, that way she could shape the outer edge any way she wanted without trying to do a turned hem. I LOVE this idea!! So may aprons so little time! I am really going to try to reproduce many of these lovely aprons!! I'll try to make patterns of them as I go too!! And Nancy Jo, thanks for being my apron fairy, you are so sweet, I just don't know how to thank you enough!! You are right, I don't really want to go to work this next week. I want to stay home and make aprons. Maybe I'll make a nursing utility apron to wear to work....hmmmm....I think I will!! A nurse can never have too many pockets! Do you think the patiens would love to see a chicken pocket on their nurse? *g*

My husband said the other day, that he was amazed at the farmgirls. He just shook his head and said, I'll never understand women. Great!!! Let's keep those men a guessin as to what we are gonna do next! LOL
