National Wear Your Apron Day

A post this morning by Sandi at Legacy of Stitches reminded me about National Wear Your Apron Day on Monday May 10th.

Each Monday Sandi has some quilterly piece hanging on her clothesline and writes a wonderful memory about the quilt or stitchery. Because it happens to be National Apron Day the post today was about her mother's aprons.
Sandi's post prompted me to want to make a post of my own. I have made 6 aprons in a patchwork style or with the "4 corners" pattern. I have 2 of my own and I gifted the others to my mom, sister, friend, aunt, and my school principal. Each apron, except for my sister's was also quilted with a meandering machine quilt stitch.
Shown here in my photos are the 2 aprons that I call my own. I usually do wear them when I am cooking or baking. I like to keep a second one available for when friends or family cook with me.

"Wear an apron day" is right up my alley! I wear an apron every day at work. I sure would like to find some new ones. I'm tired of all mine. jan
