All Good Things Must Come To An End

These are the last of Eleanor’s Aprons.

I recently had a week’s break in between classes and spent some of my free time in the craft room.

My goal was to finish up five aprons that I have had laying out just waiting to be stitched together.

It was rather bittersweet as these were the last aprons to include vintage pillowcases that belonged to my Grandma Jingles.

But it is time. I’ve am moving on to shiny sparkling things.

You can find the aprons in my Etsy shoppe. *

I’ve received such joy and healing creating the aprons and so many of you have told me how much joy you get from wearing them. A thousand “Thank you’s!”

Lovely, my favorites are the second and fourth! Use it up, wear it out, make it do - Your eponymous ancestress would be proud of you!

Bonjour chère amie,

Ces petits tabliers sont adorables et tellement mignons qu'on n'a plus d'excuse de ne pas faire la cuisine !!

Gros bisous ♡

So pretty and what a sweet way to cherish her memory.
I have a sweet little apron given to me by a very special lady who came to Canada from England as a war orphan. It was made from a flour sack and has dainty hand embroidery. The ladies wearing your lovely hand made creations are enjoying the handwork of two creative and talented ladies, you and Grandma Jingles. :)

They're all so lovely, but blue is a favorite of mine, so I ordered that one. :) Thanks for crafting them, Laura; such a great way to remember Grandma Jingles and to pass the love along.

Kindest regards,
Linda

Each one really is something to behold! SO pretty and lady-like, and filled with love and memories! Wish I could sew, but definitely not my forte. You're very talented, Laura! xoKathleen

My favourite is number four, but they are all very lovely. You're really could at sewing and seeing which pattern will look great together.
