One Apron Judging is Enough For Me

First, before I start this post, I have to say I loved your comments on my last post!   I think I have something that each of you collect right here in my house.  I know that’s what my husband would tell you.  Thank you all for sharing!  I’m feeling much more normal right now.

Regarding the judging of Pat Sloan’s apron contest, no more judging!  I can’t take it.  The pressure is just too much.  I mean, why can’t I pick them all?  Every single one who entered the contest deserves a prize.  Soooo many cute aprons!  Never ask me to be a judge again!  Had to call in some judging help from Anne over at Cottons ‘n Wool.

Vintage Pillowcase Apron

Now in case you’ve been over to Pat’s blog, you might be a little confused.  This is the apron I picked as the winner, not the one on her blog.  Not that I don’t love that one too, and it’s a good thing they were both made by Jodi over at Simply This, Than and The Other!  But this one…this one is special.  Have you ever seen anything so cute?

I can appreciate “cute” because right now my studio is such a mess.   I’m surround in fabric, papers, pencils, glue and other things I can’t find.  And it’s getting worse every day!

Studio Mess

So Jodi, here’s to your darling apron, looking so pretty hanging on that cabinet door!  I needed something cute and pretty to look at.  Thanks for providing it.

And the rest of you who entered, I loved all your aprons.   Especially the one with the two little girls, the cute pockets, the four pairs of legs,  the Christmas Fabrics, the flip flops, the…you get the picture right?

  • anniedavis - OK, this is just too funny! My first memory of "quilting" was when I was growing up. My mom would get 2 flat sheets, put a blanket in between and tie "kitties" to hold it all together. She taught me that was quilting. In any case, the first quilt that I remember making that way? Guess what it was made from? 2 sheets that were that main fabric – exactly! And I still have that blanket today – about 40 years later!ReplyCancel

  • little acorns - Oh how I love your second photo. . . ! I'm just so glad to know that I'm not the only one who's design table looks like it's lost underneath all the piles! But, I know that in your case it's also buried under wonderful ideas & soon-to-be creations! It's all a part of the process!

  • dotti white - My girls had sheets out of that fabric when they were little! I do totally love that apron that Jodi made. Take a look at this cute apron that my daughter made–I guess I will e-mail you the link. I told her she should have entered it. It is very cute, too! Have fun!ReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - It seems as though there is a case of the messy work tables going around..I have numerous projects underway and they all earn a new spot in the pecking order each day..depends on what I feel like working on..besides someone told me once a messy room shows progress being made! Well it made me feel good at the time. LouiseReplyCancel

  • Mary - I couldn't agree more with your choice. That vintage sheet set is the very sheet set that I used on my oldest child's first 'big-girl' bed. I still have the sheets. Seeing that apron is way too much fun.ReplyCancel

  • Marie Harper - You did indeed pick a winner. My daughter, turning 37 this month, had that theme in her room as a little girl. It was my first wallpapering experience…paper that very same print. I made a Holly Hobbie doll and made clothes from coordinating fabric. Lots of nostalgia for me with your favorite apron pick!ReplyCancel

  • Jodi @ Simply This and That - Thank you my bloggin friend! So fun! And I've had a blast reading everyone's comments. So fun that so many "girls" had the same room as I. The pattern comes from Jona at Stop Staring Start Sewing. I just love making that pattern up.ReplyCancel

  • Stephanie - Love the idea of using pillowcases for aprons. Absolutely CUTE and clever and did I happen to mention CUTE!ReplyCancel

  • mimi'sdarlins - Anne, I love that apron, too. I commented under her photo that I remember that patchwork print in blue/brown/peach, my brother and wife had it and we all bought wedding shower gifts to match! Ah, memories :-) The messy desk….someone's blog a few weeks ago asked people to submit messy desk photos…it was very amusing…ReplyCancel
