After attending Spark and being inspired by Kelly McCaleb and all her vintage fabric goodness....I asked my mom for some of the 'goods' that she had stored away. Tablecloths, quilts, & aprons....all handmade by women that I love. She had a bunch of aprons....some from my Aunt Dot, & one that my mom made in ninth grade.
So when Thanksgiving came around...we each chose an apron and wore it! I really think it made our meal so yummy. Many times in the kitchen, I get overwhelmed. I am not a good cook, nor will I ever be. I am very impatient. I cook most things on high and watch them bubble over.
But on this day, I was calm and enjoyed every item that we made. It took all day and into the night to clean up, but I think the apron made me happy to be cooking for my little family. Craig even laughed when later that night, long after all the dishes were clean; I was sitting on the couch, still wearing the apron.
I especially love the one that Ella is wearing..don't you?
