Sweet rosy apron

With the temperature dropping to -7°C (19.4 F), it's hardly surprising that we've been congregating in our cosy kitchen these last few days! And since I'm spending so much time baking I designed and made a new apron from this pretty fabric with an all-over rose print. Did I mention I love roses? The fabric is from Westfalenstoffe, a company  headquartered not far from where I live :)

Here's a close-up of the pocket and the strawberry button.

 The weather report said there might be snow this and next week - highly unusual for this area. Perhaps we're going to have a white Christmas for once. I'm sure all the neighbouring kids will love that! But sun-loving person that I am, I can't really share their enthusiasm!

take care,


  1. That is a sweet apron! I'm not sure I could work the ruffles with a machine as well as you did.

    I also really liked that make-up bag from your previous post...great fabric!

    BTW, congrats on your award...and we're all glad your internet is back up!

  2. What an adorable apron. I like the strawberry addition--so sweet!

    My Mom asked my to make a full apron for her friend with monogram but I want to make this waist version for myself. Maybe I will find time after Christmas....

  6. That apron is so adorable. I love pink. I'm with you on the snow, loved it as a kid, hate it as an adult, give me sunshine and warm weather. :)

  7. OMG! I would be delighted to have a white Christmas, Duni:))
    I loved that apron...never had apron since I came here. I kept forgetting to buy one:)) Now that I had seen your apron, I feel like I gotta buy one:)
    Enjoy cooking! I'm jealous coz you don't seem to gain weight... I easily get fat when I cook a lot:(( ehehehe...
    Anyways, you have a great weekend!:))

  8. No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they always love my kitchen best. That is what was on a plaque that used to hang in my mom's kitchen. This post reminded me of this.

    If you don't want that snow, you can certainly send it here. ;)

    I hope you have a lovely Christmas in the snow from someone who is in the heat of summer.
