Finished item!!

It seems ages since I posted a photo of a project that I've finished. I'm still working on the Indian Chief and kitten doiley, but there is no deadline on them as they are for me. But I have now completed this little apron for a lady in the USA who is also a collector of vintage textiles, aprons in particular. We started emailing each other last year and agreed to do an apron swap. I told her I would stitch something for her and she was delighted that it would be handmade just for her (although like me, she wouldn't have cared if it was a thrift shop buy!). So here it is: I had this plain white cotton half apron in my stash without any particular plans for it, and decided to use one of my many Aunt Martha transfers for the design. I think it looks rather cute!

I just love your apron Gina. How cute is the little pot. I could image that picture on a couple of pot holders.... how great would that be.

I love it, Gina! The animated kitchen items are my favorite transfer theme. They are always so cute!
