Ok, just one more... promise

I'm really just dropping in to show you the new aprons for the shop. I'm so ready for spring and these bright aprons are just the ticket. This one will remind you of blue skies, gardens and sunshine....
This one is for all you fans of black and white. I found the greatest little toile the other day and had to make some of these up. If you can't wait for the OWOH give-away on Feb. 12, then you might want to snap this up now.And this one is just for fun. Run Jane run... buy this fun apron!

Tomorrow I start my second job, (I know you thought it began last week, I did too, but this week I'm on the schedule). I will be working almost 50 hours a week between the two so my blogging will certainly be affected. I will do what I can, and I will most certainly be checking up on you all, but something has to give and it will probably be in the area of comments and replies. I hate that, but I'll still have housework and family time to squeeze out after work and, well, priorities you know? The good news is it will only be until April 15. *sigh* 52 days and counting... I'm grateful for the work, what with Earl being laid off and all, but I sure will miss all that free time. I hope everyone has a wonderful week, I'll see you soon:>)


  1. These are all soooo cute! I never tire of seeing your aprons Kathy.

    I know you will be busy the next several weeks....Take time for yourself too ok?

  2. Oh my goodness! These are so cute. Guess which one I like best? Yup, the one with the doily on it!!!! TO CUTE!
    Patricia :o)

  3. I love that you are prioritizing and getting things in will all work out and you'll find balance -- and when you make time for what you do with "free" time (!), make sure it's something that gives your passion release and relaxation!!! ♥

  4. The aprons are darling!! Good luck with your new second job...!

  5. Oh, I just placed my first apron order! I'm so excited.

    I hope all goes well with both of your jobs. :)

  6. Totally adorable aprons. I hope that you and your job get along well next week... and I hope to see you blogging but I know there are only 24 hours in a day!

  7. Your aprons are so sweet! I'm loving the one with the vintage needlework piece for the pocket! How sweet is that!
    Good luck with the new job! Thank heavens, huh!?

  8. Love them! Actually saw them in your store first. They are crazy cool!

  9. ooh, aah,! What beautiful, creative aprons. I wish I could buy a small waistline on ebay or etsy ;-0

  10. Kathleen... I just love your aprons!! I understand how all your time is going to be taken up with the 2nd job but I really hope we get to see new aprons!!

    Do you do the embroidery yourself? It looked like the first one had some on it.


  11. I admire your positive attitude! Just tell yourself "And this too shall pass" and then Spring will be here before you know it! And think about all that extra time you'll have when your done with Tax Season and you'll appreciate it all the more!
    The aprons are just wonderful!
    Get your rest!

  12. Hi Kathy...your aprons are just adorable...I especially like the Jane and Dick one...I don't envy you having to work two jobs...My husband was out of work a few years ago and I did the two job thing....It's very tiring, so take care of yourself....Sue.

  13. Love your aprons Kathy. Good luck with your job!

  14. Hi Kathy,

    As always your aprons are just super cute!

    I admire you for doing what you need to do for your family. Having two jobs and taking care of your family and yourself (don't forget yourself) will be tough. But April will be here before we know it.

    Take care,


  15. These are so pretty Kathy! Good luck with the jobs and take care of yourself...


  16. Good luck to you! Take your vitamins and eat your wheaties every morning(hee! hee!)
    I know what it is like to have a hubby not working but you have a great attitude! karen....

  17. They are absolutely precious! And I love your 'trademark' of making the ties long enough, to tie a bow in front. Mmmmmmm, is this idea trademarked?

    Best of luck with the work time. I agree with another reader, who suggested you take your vitamins. And get lots of rest too. To keep you healthy, while so busy. :-)

    And don't worry about commenting, during such a time!

  18. I love your aprons I collect them also. I love vintage ones.

  19. your aprons are SO cute!! I hope your 52 days go by quickly. Take care of yourself!

  20. OMG Kathy these are gorgeous, but I must say I am partial to that Run Jane Run! I loved Dick and Jane. Never mind about the comments everyone seems to be slowing down on the blogs also. Good luck in your second job.

  21. Your aprons are so wonderful. You do a fabulous job making them so special. I like the toile one the best. Congratulations on having your lovely apron in the magazine as well. I loved the extra touch with the pendant on it.
    come by and visit when you have some time.

  22. They all look lovely! Wonderful work. blessings, Kathleen

  23. Wow! I don't know how you do it. I know sometimes you just do what has to be done. But wow. Good luck and be sure to get some rest. Mimi

  24. Oh, Kathy, these are all just precious...and I never ever get tired of looking at them.
    Oh, my, are going to be so busy, working that many hours.
    Just remember to take care of YOU!
    oh, and the Father Christmas is right back on the same buffet...I had a lot of fun with moving things around and showing every one but I put him back because I love him there!! :O)

  25. These aprons are ADORABLE Kathy!!

    Love the detail too!

    Good luck at your new job too! and thanks as always for popping in for a visit and leaving such sweet comments!!

    Hugs, Cynthia

  26. I am so ready for spring too Kathy! And these beautiful aprons definitely feel like spring! I love all of them but I think the first one is my favorite! Beautiful job!!

    Love ya,

  27. Hi sweet friend! I hope that your week is going good and that you take some time to relax and do something nice for yourself, too.

    Kathy, you already know how much I love the things you make because I own THREE of your lovely creations. You have outdid yourself - AGAIN - and the aprons are just precious! I cannot wait to get the Apron-Ology magazine. Any idea where they will be sold?



Thank you for taking the time to say hello :)
