Sometimes selling something on Etsy is a bittersweet experience. That goes for this apron I sold from my shop yesterday. I made it from a vintage tablecloth I bought at flea market a few years ago. I will write about the process another day. I made 4 aprons from the four corners, two with the chickens and lady, the other with a horse and buggy carriage. The other chicken apron I’m keeping, of course, but the two horse and buggy aprons are still for sale. Just click on the photo of it below to purchase.

All ready for cooking and baking!
This tablecloth was hand-stamped with a stencil, I believe. The other panel has slightly different colors.
Back view plus a peek at the cool Artfully Sew tag.
I’ve decided that my next big quilt is going to be based on our 5 original chickens. From left to right, Ruby, Ms White, Woody, Golda and Dottie. We refer to them as the Fabulous Five. Only Golda is left, poor dears. But I loved them dearly and they will make a marvelous subject for a quilt. Now off to sketch some ideas for the layout!
