I never used to wear an apron (I currently own just one), but this past year I have really desired to wear mine more often. I would wear it all the time, but it is the only one I have, so I am trying to make it last longer :-) I have been looking online for just the right pattern. When I saw this contest I almost jumped up and down I was so giddy! If I don't win I will have to buy that book. Something really does happen when you don an apron. Can't really explain why, but it is true. It's kind of like putting on a uniform, it is time to work. I have found myself spotting aprons all over the net, taking mental notes on their construction. I would really like to have, oh, about 20 more aprons! Hee, hee, I'm joking, 19 will do ;-) I like a full apron as I seem to have the knack of getting my shirt and skirt wet or stained while cleaning. Seeing as how my wardrobe was limited this pregnancy I needed to preserve the shirts I did have! I have a bit more selection now, but not by much, so my apron is serving me well. We had a lot of work to get done today and I put my apron on early this morning to get the inspiration I needed to get it all done. I have to say it is working as the house is taking shape!
So stop reading and get going to enter yourself in!!!
