I have never been to DC although my father has worked there and been a federal employee most of his life. A retired Air Traffic Controller of 30 plus years he has told me of the beautiful details of so many of the buildings and museums. I can only imagine the city is even more beautiful during the cherry blossom season. This sweet little vintage image is strangely from a get well card but cute just the same. No vacationing for our busy brood this summer we are spilling into school season next week. There were only a few moments that I could find to finish up my apron this weekend but I am so happy with how it turned out.
Originally I wanted to forgo the flower addition but the space almost called for it. The first few tries were a bust. I had trouble taking advantage of the fabric and the print. It is a gentle apron that flows. Sitting at your natural waist or slightly below.
A full luscious tie that creates a grand bow for the back. No detail spared. If you are going to make it make it great! You are going to put your name on it. That is the way I figure it.
The strawberry button was meant to be. Heaven knows what estate sale I picked it up from or how long it has been waiting for the spot light.
Really if I could wear bows at my age I would everyday!
Signed and sealed. Another pleasant outcome to a wonderful vintage tablecloth. The entire center section was spared and will be safely tucked away for a pillow perhaps. I happily spent the weekend in the garden gathering the crispy remains of plants. Sadly, I have lost some beloved perennials even with the watering but I am mindful that there are new varieties to try next year!
