Some more of my aprons.

A few more aprons, which don't fit into any of the categories I have set up here for the others...What's the point of putting 'labels' on them here if nothing shows up on the blog? Or am I missing something?

One of several gingham half aprons embellished with cross stitch and ric-rac.
Detail on the pocket.
My friend Helen gave this to me for Christmas a few years ago. She found it at an opshop in Violet Town, in rural Victoria.
This doesn't need any detailed explanations - everyone knows the Willow Pattern from somewhere!
Vine leaves and grapes; this would be good to wear at a wine tasting!

They are all lovely! I especially like the one from your friend Helen. Is an opshop, an antique or thrift shop? What a beautiful name...Violet Town! I experienced the same thing as you with my blog labels, they don't show up on the blog!

Hi Janice, yes - Op shop is short for 'opportunity shop' - the same as your thrift shops in the USA.
Violet Town is a tiny rural town here in Victoria, and its biggest claim to fame would probably be a disastrous railway accident which occured there many years ago, but is still remembered by most people who were old enough to understand the tragic loss of lives at that time.
