Some new/old aprons

I have decided to make three aprons for the Ballarat Apron Festival (the maximum number allowed from one person) and I've made an early start with this child's apron.  I just need to embroider 'Sweet Tooth' on it and it will be finished.

The next apron I'm planning is applique on gingham.  So when I found this unfinished hand made gingham apron for $1.50 in our opshop yesterday, I snapped it up... save me making one - all I have to do is embellish it.

I found another apron in the opshop last week and although it isn't embroidered, I bought it because the patchwork fabric it is made from is so pretty.

Apron Festival at Ballarat, Vic. in May.

I was at the Embroiderers Guild today, and as one of my volunteer jobs is to tidy up the members' notice board, I was doing that, when I found a postcard advertising the Ballarat Apron Festival. I took a copy of it, and looked it up online when I got home. The organisers have a website with all the details, and application form if people wish to make an apron for the festival. They have to be in by April 11, so it gives me a bit over one month to make an apron. Am I going to do it? You bet - everything else is on hold until I've done it - lol!
