First of all, I won this cutie pie from Christine of Pies & Aprons. A cute, diamond-shaped half apron with a tulip print and lots of pretty yellow rickrack trim.
Next, I won Michael's blogversary contest, the one I linked for you here. See, it all comes out in the wash.
As did these pretty aprons that he sent. A wash, starch and session on the clothesline, then a touch-up with an iron, and they are all ready for another few years helping out in the kitchen. First is this cobbler's smock style apron. I'm not normally a big fan of them, and this one looks silly on the dress form, but it looks unusually cute on ME.
But wait, there's more! Here's my favorite of the aprons from Michael:
It was made of a blue and white border print. It fits so cute, and I feel gorgeous in it. I need to make more just like it. Where are my border prints, anyway? :)
Michael also sent more goodies:
Fabric trims, rickrack and gift wrap ribbons:
And a cute little souvenir plate for Missouri, about 4 inches across:
That's all the prizes. I also bought this little half apron with big comfy useful pockets at a garage sale. It's not pretty, it's just a hard workin' little apron.
The print fabric is all pockets. See what I mean?
I don't have any really handy ways to store and show off full aprons. Any thoughts, anyone?
