A little birdie...


A little birdie told me it was someones birthday...


By coincidence I just happen to be putting the finishing touches on a long promised apron.


One that took far too long to narrow down.  Could it be because Magpie Ethel is such a crafting genius that I fear I couldn't come close to her magic...possibly.


I wanted to make something that captured her fun and carefree vintage style.


Tailored touches perfected.  


Side pleats, rick rack trim, and vintage tea towel apron front.  The modern dot print was just the fun touch this needed.


Laurie I cannot thank you enough for all smiles, inspiration and just pure fun that you bring with your blog.  Clearly I am the lucky one for having found such a place.  Happy Birthday!
