This photo was taken about a year and a half ago -- before my seven-pound African weight gain, when my tummy was actually flat -- while we were staying with my parents. When I began my apron frenzy, I was keeping a different blog and posted about it there. My mom brought out this beautiful specimen to show me that I'm not the first woman in our family to take an interest in apron making.
My great-grandmother, Jesse, used to busy herself crocheting useful items for the extended family, and this beauty is one of her creations. Mom says that this apron is about my age. Today it became my own. Woo-Hoo!
