These are aprons that my mother made years ago. She took gingham and cross stitched designs on it and made aprons. I think she gave everyone she knew an apron for a gift. As a little girl, I remember wearing gingham dresses with the cross stitch design around the hem. I love these aprons because I know she did the stitching. I also have the one apron I bought this year when we ate at Paula Deen's.
I know my laundry room isn't as pretty as Shannon's but I will say it makes me feel much better when I walk in there. It's surprising what a little "fixin' up" does to make your whole attitude change. Thanks Shannon for sharing your pictures!
