A Flowery Apron

I started this apron last week, for something to work on. I was lacking in inspiration, and so it kind of sat...unfinished...in my projects bag for a few days.

Until this weekend! Our congregation organized a silent auction to raise money for our Young Men and Young Women to attend their various camps this year. Members of our ward donated services, items and experiences. (Seriously - we had everything from flat screen computer monitors to a football signed by Steve Young to Yankee's tickets!) I donated an apron, but was unable to attend the auction to find out who won it.

On Sunday, I found out, and BOY was I excited! The apron is destined for a vivacious little girl in our ward. She has a wacky sense of humor and a head full of gold ringlets. When her mother found out that I was working on a "Hawaiian print" apron at home, she knew that was the one she had to have! Once I knew this apron was meant for that little girl, I suddenly had no problems finishing it off.

I've perfected my skirt technique, and I really like it.

The straps are so long, they wrap around and tie in the front. I love it!

The patch at the top is a pocket, and my first attempt at machine embroidery. What do you think?

My daughter didn't want to part with it, but after I told her who it was for, she relinquished her claim and asked for a movie as a parting prize. Works for me! I sure hope our golden haired friend likes it, too!
