A Most Unexpected Surprise

This week I received the most unexpected, lovely gift.  My husband’s mom, sent a package to me, out of the blue, filled with hand sewn aprons that she made for me.  7 to be exact!
And they are so pretty, so colourful, and so detailed.  And so me.  
I was touched beyond words that someone did this for me.  So unexpected.  So, so thoughtful.
Thank-you Stephanie!
I just had to share them!  Here they are!  
Number 1:  This one is my fave!  I feel like a cupcake in it!  (in a good way!)
Love the piping detail!
Love the ruffles and the colours!
Number 2:  So bright and colourful!  Love the patterns!
Detailing along the pocket.
Ric rac trim.
Beautiful fabric, even on the back of the apron!
Number 3:  Love love the fabric!
Too fun!
And the ruffles, oh my!
Number 4:  Love the fabric!  I’m a retro girl at heart…
I adore owls!
Number 5:  Retro fun!  Martini anyone?  Yes, please.
Love the trim!
Again, even the back of the apron has amazing fabric!
Detailing along the pockets.
Number 6:  The kids love this one!  So cute!
Great detailing!
Again, even the back is done!
Number 7:  So bright and pretty!  Sassy!
I love the tie on this one, it runs along the sides.
Pretty fabric on the back side too!

 I hope you enjoyed the little show of my aprons!  They are just too pretty not to share!

    Wow! Your mother-in-law is very talented! I love 1, 3, and 5. I don’t even own an apron, I really should get around to buying one!

    Precious gift. And a gift of time since by looking at them you can see the time involved. I love them all but number 2 and 5 are my favs. Thanks for sharing this apron feast!

    I’m reading back over your older posts, so I’m sorry to be behind in commenting…..wow, these are the most beautiful aprons! Honestly, I’d buy one. She could sell these!

    By the way, I’m happy to find another Canadian blogger, but more importantly, I’m happy to find someone who likes to decorate her house and front porch for all of the holidays! My son is a teen now, so I don’t do as much as I used to, but I still do the major holidays, just for me!
    Enjoying your blog, sorry to be so wordy!
