Unusual half apron.

I know it's been a while since I posted, but if I haven't got any more aprons to add, it's not much point writing about something else! But now I've got two more to add, although I can only photograph one - this green half apron. Don't be fooled into thinking the trimming is chicken scratch - it's not. It is smocking, and beautifully done.

The other apron that I haven't included here is a calico printed unworked apron. It is quite old, and the transfer is very pale, so it wouldn't show up in a photo. The design is two puppies peeping over a fence. I've got a similar design in a doiley, so I'll copy those colours when I get around to stitching it.
