Fabulous Geisha Girl apron!

I won this on eBay last week. The seller is a lady in N.S.W. who told me this was made by her grandmother around 1960. She would have been about sixty when she made it.
These photos show the apron in full (unfortunately the colour is not correct), a closeup of part of the design (colour is better in this pic.) and one of the reverse, in which you can see the enormous amount of stitching done.
What else can I say, but WOW...

Doggie apron!

My friend LeeAnn from Peartree Cottage presented me with this cutie last weekend! I haven't washed and ironed it yet, but it photographed okay I think.
