New Aprons

I made this apron for my sister-in-law.  She's the one who gave me the little beaded critters to use on my bag zippers.  Marianne has worked hard all of her life, raising three wonderful children, and building her bead business.  She became a widow within the past couple of years and sent her youngest off to college half way across the country.  I decided to make her an apron that she could wear at shows, with the OM symbol on it because she is someone who has that peace about her, in spite of everything.  I was delighted to make it for her and I hope she loves it!  It goes in the mail tomorrow!
This one I made for my daughter, Leila.  She's learning to be a cook (actually she is a very good one already.)  She works in a Hospice cooking for the residents and their families and she makes wonderful things especially for them; whatever they want is just what they get!  Everyone who knows Leila loves her, and I am certainly high on that list.  She wanted a red apron and she is not a "girly girl" so I made her this tailored one.  It's going in the mail tomorrow, too!

Finally, this last one is one I made with the material I got on my recent trip to the fashion district in New York.  I am thinking very seriously about making a bunch of them for the "Cupcake Festival" in Gardiner coming up in May.  I'll have to see how many I get made by that time.  It's a cutie, though, isn't it?
