The Seamstress and Her Apron

In this last year, Cassaundra has taken up sewing with a passion. For her, Going into a fabric store is like a little girl going into a candy store and smelling the different flavors and seeing the wonderful colors of the sweet treats all around her. Keeping her supplied with enough projects and fabrics is a challenge to say the least.

Her newest creation is an Edwardian Apron. Our collection of daily worn aprons will welcome the new red and white gingham friend (pictured below). Starting with a clean, crisp appearance, it will soon fit in with the others after becoming gently stained with homemade blueberry sauce, chocolate chip cookie dough, spagetti sauce and perhaps a little soil from our vegetable garden.

Each apron is so special, I don't think we could ever throw one away. It may be that we will have to create a special hook in the kitchen for each of our retired helpers, thus taking on a new purpose, becoming a beautiful piece of art representing memories of us cooking and baking together.

Our aprons are not something to be ashamed of wearing when a friend drops in unexpectedly. It can be just as beautiful and fun to wear as your regular clothing.
