It has always seemed to me that I must have lived another life as a pioneer/cowgirl. I am drawn to the types of pastimes that a woman of those days would have done... deriving much pleasure out of needlework, and gardening, and preserving the food I have grown. I am even drawn to the fashions of those bygone days and would feel quite at home in bloomers, petticoat and prairie dress with apron. Once a month I would hitch up my horse to the family wagon and head on into town for staples such as flour, sugar, molasses and whatever else we needed to get by. Then I would return home and use the flour sacks to fashion myself a new prairie dress. I would spend my days herding the cattle and tending the gardens. Some days I would make time for making soap or doing the laundry by washboard or churning the butter. Although this lifestyle seems like hard work, it is so much less complicated than life in 2008...and possibly more satisfying.
To celebrate the cowgirl in me I made this apron to match my pink cowgirl boots.
Yee Haw! Now I better go rustle up some breakfast!! Ya'll have a great day!
