In my post I'd like to share some of the bright red cherries that are sprinkled throughout my home. From cotton aprons trimmed with old fashioned red rick rack to cozy quilts....They are all such a lovely addition to any country cottage decor!
Each year my sister, Sherry, blesses me with lots and lots of cherries. I like to dehydrate and then freeze them. They are delicious in homemade ice cream, nut breads and homemade granola bars!
I've been busy in my sewing room this past week making up this
sweet little 1940s vintage apron.
I found this wonderful vintage pattern then
modified it a bit for this apron.
|Pardon my camera exposure...The apron looks blue, but it's black with tiny little cherries|
and cherry red rick rack.
|Aprons always look so sweet garnished with rick rack.|
The original 1940s vintage pattern incorporated lots and lots of it.
|I was thrilled to find this 1940s Vintage Apron pattern.|
When I have an etsy shop I will be stitching up
these darling aprons for sale.
|I love...love...love the back of this apron. |
If you look closely there is a band between the shoulders to
prevent the straps from slipping off your shoulders.
I attached the straps at the waistband
with buttonholes and shiny black buttons.
| The finishing touch!|
|Isn't she lovely! My darling adopted daughter, Paula, from|
"Rose Fairie Cottage" made this sweet little quilted portrait
for me for Mother's Day.
(This is the fabric I used to recover my ironing board.)
|Thank you my sweet friends for stopping by for a visit.|
How I would love to share a slice of freshly baked cherry walnut bread
and a hot cup of tea with each one of you!
Have a wonderful week!
