Before we moved to the desert, I loved going to estate auctions and sales. Lots of things went on ebay, but there was always stuff that just seemed to accumulate. When I think about moving it all again, well, I just don't think I need to.
So this weekend, I began the process, (which will surely be lengthy) to go through the things I have and sort into 'things I love' and 'things that I don't need to keep'.
I don't think this is something I 'love', but I love some things about it!
Aren't they the cutest?
The apron is very stiff - I am thinking it probably has never been used or laundered. To me, the way a fabric feels is as much a part of the appeal as the way it looks, so stiff is not something I am drawn to!
This apron is well used and very soft!
It also uses bias tape for embellishment - at the waist and the hem.
But look at this applique!
Someone put a lot of effort into making a very utilitarian garment pretty and whimsical! I love the colors of the bias tape and applique against the gray.
I have not decided where these aprons fall on the 'love or not' scale. After going through the storage tote and ironing 20 or so aprons, I am pretty sure that is more than I need! But when I was done - I put them all back in the box.
I will think about them another day!
