When I Wear My Apron ~ Giveaway

by Sandra on May 24, 2016 in Announcements, Giveaways, Homemaking, Sewing

When I wear my apron, a new day is upon me. I take a peek through the kitchen curtains. The sun has yet to rise over the mountain. It is quiet in my home and I can hear my thoughts. As I make a quick checklist in my mind of the tasks before me, I realize I must get ready for work.

I know that work has begun. The oven is preheated and the eggs are cracked. As I decide if today’s omelet will be smothered in Cheddar Cheese or Colby Jack, my lips are pressed together and turned upright. I smile. I smile because I love what I am doing. I am starting my work day and I am dressed in my uniform.

There I am with my fingers in the dough. White flour is not only splattered across the counter, I see it on my apron. As I glance to the left and see a pile of dishes in the sink, it is then I remember the dirty laundry that has been making a trial down the hall since last night. (Yes, I went to bed with dirty clothes in the hallway.)

I wish could tell you that I was the perfect homemaker, but I am not. What I can tell you is that through my imperfections, a perfect God has given me the desire for my home and for those that dwell within. It may sound silly, but when I look down at my apron, I feel a breath of fresh air.

Maybe you’re like me, an imperfect homemaker leaning on a prefect God and need a breath of fresh air. If that is you, I am encouraging you to wear your apron. If you do not have an apron, I have good news for you. I am doing a giveaway. My friend Tonya is wearing the apron that I will be giving away. This apron was personally handmade by me. I love to make aprons!

I, too, feel as though I am putting on “my uniform” when I put on an apron. This one is so pretty.

Sandra May 24, 2016

Thank you! It’s such a great feeling.

Michelle in OK May 24, 2016

More than winning this beautiful apron; I would love to see how you made it! It looks wide enough to cover my hips (where I invariably wipe my hands!)–most of the aprons I see don’t cover that spot. It’s very frustrating for me!

Sandra May 24, 2016

Michelle I know exactly what you mean. That happens to me quite often. I used Simplicity Pattern #1240. It’s the apron pictured in “B”.

Chrissy May 24, 2016

I love the apron its so beautiful! ? God has gifted you with a wonderful talent!

Carrie M. May 24, 2016

That apron is beautiful, and it has a pocket! I have little ones underfoot. Pockets are a must! If I win this, I’m telling my daughters that this is mommy’s “princess dress.” Lol! Seriously, it is feminine and beautiful. It’s no wonder that your friend who is modeling the apron is smiling. 🙂

Sandra May 24, 2016

Yes Carrie it has a pocket. Pockets come in handy especially when you have little ones. I love the idea of mommy’s princess dress.

Heather May 24, 2016

Aprons are my uniform as a homemaker. I love them! ❤️
