Another fabulous apron - just look at this stitching!

This HAS to have been done for a competition or show of some sort. I doubt very much if the embroiderer put all this effort in just to wear around the house!

Another beautiful showpiece.

When I won this apron on eBay, I asked the seller if she knew the origins. From what she replied, I believe her mother made it, and it was done for competition in a show. I thought it would attract huge bids, so I put my maximum bid in for $40, but there was only two other bids, and I won it for less than $10!!!!
