Oh my goodness, how long has it been since I have sewn something?

(Seems like months!)
Somehow in the past two days I snuck in a little sewing time...
probably because the garden is planted,
it has rained each day (no watering needed to be done),
the house is clean and the laundry is done.

Every day while I am out doing tasks around the farm,
I envision what type of apron would be the perfect "can-do" 
apron for farmgirls of all types.

Inspired by my beloved chickens,
(I love the cheerful chicken and sunny side up egg fabrics.)
I came up with this everyday-chore-apron,
with ample and deep pockets....
perfect for bringing in the day's garden fare,
or for collecting eggs,
or even for holding lots of clothespins while hanging the laundry.
There's even a small pocket sewn in to the side for a cell phone.

I can think of tons of uses each and every day!
This one is for sale HERE,
but I think I'll have to make another just for me!

Cute apron! Just saw your post on baking -- that chocolate cake sounds amazing. Have bookmarked it to try at a later day. Best wishes for a fabulous Friday. Tammy

Does mending the trim on a vintage pillow case count as "getting some sewing time in"? lol!
I did sign up for an apron swap for July,,,so now I get to have an excuse (like I need one) to go peruse the fabric shops in search of the 'perfect' fabric for the apron.
I've been itchin' to get stitchin'...
