I first shared “Eleanor’s Aprons” way back in April.
Since that time I have continued sewing.
Stitch by stitch my grieving heart has mended.
As the stack of precious vintage fabric, laces and handkerchiefs grew smaller and smaller I felt better and better.
All of the aprons shown here (plus a few others) were sent off last week to lovely friends who reserved an order for one of Eleanor’s Aprons.
I was able to give a lovely donation in my grandmother’s name to the American Heart Association.
Thank you so very much dear friends for all your support.
We have now come to the final four.
Three of the the final four aprons have been put into my Etsy Shoppe.
Now I don’t want to cause a panic. I won’t quit making aprons.
It’s just the next batch are going to be very different. I’ll share a sneak peek on Friday.
The remaining apron…well, it’s kinda special.
You see it was the very first Eleanor’s Apron that I made. The prototype.
I’m warning you. I got all the glitches out in this one apron.
The pocket is not quite big enough, the upper row of lace is slightly crooked, and the quilt applique is slightly askew.
This apron made me decide that future apron strings needed to be longer.
And well, despite all this I find this apron to be my favorite because it’s full of charm.
This apron is for those lovely hearts and kindred spirits who adore charm too.
I’ll also be tucking in a vintage rhinestone and lilac enamel brooch and some sweet smelling lavender soap into the giveaway package.
For those of you who need an apron right now you can head over to the Etsy Shoppe.
You can also find some bejeweled treasures there as well.
This giveaway is open to everyone including treasured readers living abroad.
