A few weeks ago I emailed my sister in a panic. Tonight our church is having a mother-daughter dessert fellowship, and I’m speaking, and the theme is aprons, and the only apron in our house was a child-sized red and white checked apron I bought at Walmart several years ago in a set with a child-sized potholder and rolling pin.
My sister is the most awesome sister in the universe, in spite of how much I make fun of her, and in spite of the fact that she refuses to tell the giraffe story on video for us. (Meanie). But she is a very talented seamstress, so she agreed to make me an apron and it came today. (Yes, it is cutting it close. She has four kids, three of whom she is homeschooling, plus she takes online classes and leads crafts for her MOPS group and is active in her church and stays very busy, so it was a huge blessing to me that she took time out to make this for me. Plus, I’m speaking in six hours and only have a vague outline prepared, so I’m really not able to criticize.)
Anyway. Pictures. Which is the whole point of this long post in the first place.
She didn’t tell me anything about it except that it had cupcakes on it. And ruffles.
I had her make the top extra wide. I used to wear an apron at work and had some issues with it never sitting straight, if you know what I mean. If not, be glad.
Seriously. Isn’t it CUTE??? Even with me in it??? Ha!
And guess what. She also made a little one for Squeezy Bug.
Unfortunately, Squeezy Bug was not really in the mood for mother-daughter apron picture bonding.
She was, however, apparently in the mood to have a charismatic experience. Someone tell this child we’re Baptists, would you?
Good thing we’re so cute. I’m sure that will make up for my lack of content when I speak tonight, right?
Thanks, Laura. You are seriously the best. 🙂
(And thanks for making it so cute. I could never, ever risk getting something on it, so I guess I don’t have to cook. Right?)
