Apron with lady smoking.

Gosh, how politically incorrect is that these days! This apron is stitched on some kind of homespun fabric, with hand crocheted edges, but no ties, which makes me think it was done for an embroidery show or contest.

I like this apron, especially her blue dress and those pink flowers at her feet. Is that a satin stitch?
