I Think This Apron Is Weird!

I've had this pattern for years upon years.  I don't remember ever using it, but it had been trimmed, yet it was in like-new condition.


I think one reason I'd never made an apron by the pattern was the fact that it took a lot of fabric and bias tape.  So after my daughter brought a bag of scraps to me last week, and some pieces were fairly large, I decided to try it, and made view B.  From the picture you can see how it is put together and that it has four ties.  I believe the ties for the back are brought around to the front and tied, making a knot on the belly. :)  Then the front ties are fastened in the back.  Weird?  It is a one-size pattern, but in my opinion, if a small person tried to wear it, she'd be swallowed up by it.

One day, as I searched Amazon for apron patterns, guess what I came upon...

https://www.amazon.com/Butterick-3872-Vintage-Sewing-Pattern/dp/B019FWQ6LA/ref=sr_1_149?ie=UTF8&qid=1498615183&sr=8-149&keywords=vintage+apron+patterns+for+sewing

Just take a look at the price!  My pattern cost fifty cents back in the days which have now become vintage!  Maybe a collector would want it that badly, but not me, especially after making this apron.  

Please don't tell me you think it's pretty...  :)

Another Apron

This apron was made in April (?).  Time is just passing me by it seems with so many appointments and early morning trips to the eye clinic.  The second surgery was done on the 7th and today the doctor said it looks great.  (The farmer says he probably tells everyone this. :)  All in all I think I've done well, but ~ it hasn't been a breeze!  I don't think I'm going to need glasses!

Thanks for all your concerns for me.

Good Report

My doctor was well pleased with the healing of my eye, so of course I was too!  Now on to next Wednesday for the second surgery and then I can begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel ~ literally.  He thinks all I will need will be glasses for threading my needles. :)

Forgive me ~ but I have to post another kitty picture.  This one is a bit older than the ones I showed before.  Isn't it precious!


The farmer says, "Too many cats!"  He's feeding them for me.
