Or maybe we should call it an obsession

This pattern promptly moved to the top of my To Do pile. Oh, I just love it!
Grandma gave it to me when we saw her last week. Given my current love of smocking, gingham, and chickenscratch, this project is a MUST. Tsia and I purchased the gingham today on a quick trip uptown, thank you very much. And I think I'll be improvising a bit of chickenscratch on it somewhere, just because I think it needs to be there. Maybe on the hem someplace. Or on the pocket.

I'll be making the half apron. Love the full apron, but I think we need to be more realistic about my time these days. I mean, when did I last post a finished project? Don't worry; I've got stuff for you. Soon.

    I love the ladies on the cover. Especially the one in the back who seems to be saying,"Ready for dessert, honey?" I have a ton of vintage patterns passed on from grandparents. Some of the designs look so now and some I hope stay in the past. But they are so fun to look through.

    You're saucy enough without the apron.
