Lady in a blue dress on a brick wall.

I can't begin to explain how excited I was to win this on eBay last week! Words alone won't describe the beauty of the work in this apron. I've taken three photos - one of the apron as a whole, a closeup of the design, and a section of the reverse, so you can see the meticulous hand stitching - just in case you thought it was applique or machine stitched!
