A brilliant thought came to me. Why not let my Grandma break the tie who was born in that era, is lovingly fond of her era and speaks of it with a twinkle in her eye. So I asked her, and her favorite was:
But then she said, "Or, you could name it Gracie." And when she said that, I thought that "Gracie" would fit this apron perfectly. I loved it! It sounds so much like that era, with sweetness and yet personality.
As a few of you have so kindly written to me (my apologies; I haven't had much time for writing notes of any kind!) in asking if I will be offering patterns of this apron design. The answer is yes, I hope to! At this point I am considering the option of selling them as paper patterns or an e-pattern that you can download right away.
Honestly, I don't know anything about going about either of the two options, so if you have any info, or perhaps a strong opinion for or against, I'd love to hear from you! =)
And as for the other news that I wanted to share with you, I will be back home for a couple of weeks which means I'll be sewing up a storm of aprons for the shop! I will be returning to Michigan however, so there is only so much one can sew up in 2 or 3 weeks. =) If there is anything is specific that you're looking for, for yourself or as a gift, let me know and I'll do my best to meet your needs!
