  1. Wow! I’m glad to see such a large interest in aprons again! I’ve always loved aprons, even when they weren’t popular for awhile. I feel that every kitchen should have at least one apron hanging there, so for the past few Christmases I’ve been making aprons for family and friends. I now belong to a local sewing group where we are making “fidget aprons” for alzheimers’ patients. Thank you so much for your website!

  2. Thanks, EllynAnne, for telling me about this event so long ago and for the blessings of being involved since the beginning. Making and giving breads over the years has been such a wonderful experience. It has blessed me over and over. I sincerely thank you for sharing it with me that day at Dillards. Keep up the great work, my friend!

  3. I haven’t thought of aprons since my grandmothers were alive. Makes me feel warm inside. I think I’ll give my good neighbor one of my first canning attempts. Spiced apples! (they turned out famously, thank you).
    Thank you for this chance to win one of these lovely gifts! Cyndi
