Some more aprons!

At last I have some more aprons to add to my collection, thanks to a dear friend who manages an opshop, and keeps an eye out for interesting pieces for me!

 Half-apron with heavily worked thistles. 

 Very old apron with someone's initials on the pocket. 
 Another old one with sweet design of lady with cat.
 Pretty floral design.
Unfortunately this apron has a binding of dark blue bias binding, and the blue 'bled' into the other items when I soaked them all in Napisan over night. Fortunately I was able to rinse the run out of the other aprons pretty well, but this fabric is a coarse calico and the blue has stained it badly.
