Blame it on Erica (Hooks & Needles). If I wasn't addicted to reading her blog to see what wonderful creation she has whipped up I never would have noticed this apron pattern. So of course I had to run out and pick it up while it was on sale at Joann's.
A friend gave me this fabric when she moved (more than five years ago - yikes!) I've always liked the colors and the pattern of fruit mixed with flowers. She had purchased it to make a kitchen window valance but I envisioned it made into an apron. With the arrival of Butterick 4945, a fabric and apron pattern match has been made.
The only decision left to make is whether or not I keep it or give it away as a hostess gift (to one my wonderful younger sisters who has volunteered to host not only Thanksgiving dinner but Christmas as well!!!)
