Pretty apron...and when you need a tall slender model you really can't go past a tree *LOL*

Vicki said...

Jo in TAS said...

Quilting in My Pyjamas said...

Is that made from a pillowcase or a sheet ? I think I have that in my linen stash!

Very sweet Clare. And at least your model could be trusted not to move as you took the picture!

Pam said...

Great checkout Clare! :)
Lovely apron as well! :)

Kerryanne English said...

I'm an apron girl as you know, so of course I looooooove it. It ticks all the boxes for me - well done Clare.. and an OPAM finish as well.

Posie Patchwork said...

i just have visions of people ordering them saying "well i guess i'm about the width of a 20 year old tree". Love Posie

Linda said...

marina said...

Now when that tree does the washing or cooking at least she can protect her bark.

Robyn said...

Gorgeous work Clare... mmm that does look lovely and useful...
Looks good on the tree too :p

Sue said...

Hilarious! Maybe the tree should have waxed her legs.

Indigo Blue said...

Lovely apron, very summery colour. The tree was a good idea, pity i haven't got any in my garden as photographing things like this is tricky if you are on your own. Did you use a sheet and a pattern?

Annie xx TheFeltFairy said...

It is really lovely! Great for a Domestic Goddess!
I wanted to ask about the OPAM - is it your invention or a movement? It sounds great!

Mistea said...

I hope that tree got to work and cooked up something delicious after the modeling session was over!

Beautiful apron.

Sarah Craig said...

Swe-e-e-e-e-t!! Love that fabric - and it gives me an idea for the embroidered fabric strips I found in my grandmother's stash! Thanks!!

Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog. I popped across to visit yours and the first thing I spy is my old bedspread, transformed into a gorgeous apron. It's true, I had a bedspread made in that very same print. The apron looks fab!
