I love the variety of aprons. I am completing my last year of homeschooling my daughter this year. She will graduate in May. I am taking the afternoon off enjoying your blog. I haven't made the time to do anything creative in years. This has been a nice visit and an inspiration to try something creative. God Bless You.

Love your aprons using hankies and embroidered towels. As the facilitator of The Winona Area Apron Group, Winona, MN we are always looking for new ideas using our donated hankies, fabric, buttons and more as we sell the aprons with funds going to Cancer Research at the Mayo, Rochester, MN and Breast Cancer Awareness..

As if it were not bad enough that I spend so much time on Pinterest, now I'm finding myself lost in your webspace. I was drawn here by your "giveaway apron". I am lusting after it. I host Easter every year at my home and now I must have an apron like it. Your work is so interesting and beautiful. I am a teacher and I will be sharing your artwork with the girls at the lunchroom table next week. Looking forward to your posts!

I collect vintage aprons, hankies, table linens,doilies & dresser scarves. I have made pillows using dresser scarves, appliquing doilies onto existing pillows, using tattered quilts or quilt tops. I have made Christmas Stockings, ornaments, wreaths & pin cushions from the same tattered quilts & quilt tops. I even tear my old T-shirts & sheets into strips to crochet rag rugs. But I had never thought of using the things I already collect together to make aprons. Yours are beautiful. I have one of my grandma's hankies & one of her aprons. I see you do custom orders. I'd never try to learn with her things. What do you charge for a custom order like that.
Thanks, Jane
