I've been working on a project,
actually not one but two,
I've sewn one apron for me,
and one for someone who,
if their name is drawn
two weeks from this day,
they will be the winner
of my very first give~away!
Laying out the pattern
Sewing the pieces together
Ironing as I go

The finished apron

If you would like to take part in my little give~away, please leave a comment.( You must have a blog.) If you send someone else , and they leave a comment and mention that you sent them,
your name will be entered twice.
Gentleman Farmer will draw the name of the winner on March 10.

Hi Mom, I know I have already received a beautiful apron from you, but it inspires me to clean, so perhaps another would be in good order!

A most lovely apron! The sweetest fabric pattern and color. If I should win I might feel a tad guilty as your own daughter (above comment)would like to be the recipient of this sweet creation. But I'll try to get over it. :)

Stumbled across your blog and this giveaway.
I love aprons. My mother collected them. Her collection was split between my sisters and I when she passed away. What I have hangs in my kitchen or around my middle. I would love to add your beautiful apron to hang with the others.

I just found you! What a lovely blog you share with readers! Your apron is just so sweet. I treasure my grandmother's aprons so much. You may be interested in my recent post. My aprons are a bit more homey than your amazing design!

I am looking forward to visiting your blog again--I think my travels will be enjoyed!
