My love for aprons must have its source in this first one I embroidered for my mother when I was six years old, on the opportunity of the Mothers' Day Celebration. Our school teacher brought the aprons in the class room and taught us the embroidery skill. I can still remember the incredible feeling of pleasure I had doing this embroidery, and the great satisfaction after realizing that I was able to do myself such a "chef d'oeuvre"... needless to say the extreme proudness I felt when offering it to my mother!! The funny thing is that she used it all her life, and I can still remember her in the kitchen wearing this apron. I think she never had another one!
The second apron was done and used by my mother-in-law. Kind of charming patchwork.
I had myself sewn many aprons of all sorts in the past. Here is My daughter's apron.
