Lot’s of planting and pulling weeds this week as the garden gets going.
Remembering that I have garden aprons to lessen the dirt that I bring indoors,
I rummaged through the potting shed to find this linen apron.
I designed and sewed this apron for Country Gardens Magazine a couple of years ago.
The pattern and images appeared in the Fall issue of 2014.
It was a dream come true to travel to the Better Homes And Gardens Test Garden’s and
co produce the story with my friend Kate Carter-Frederick.
I ended up having to model for the story, and though I was in the most lovely gardens,
was completely out of my element!
This image looks simple enough.
I first held a watering can.
The pot was tilted many angles.
My shirt was unbuttoned-just one more!
The pot got really heavy!
They cropped this image-perfectly!

cute post, like your apron. My husband and I are in the dirt constantly now that it is garden season.
That’s fantastic! I need ‘knee aprons’ as that’s the part that gets dirtiest on me. Enjoy your garden time!
Hi Stacey, Good to see you in my potager this morning. Love that apron, but I never remember to put one on…all my jeans and shirts are a mess!
I sent you an email this morning!
After your garden chores are done, take a peek!
Thank you for your sweet comment and yes, I’m always messy in the garden!
Your apron brought back fond memories of working in our orchard in New Hampshire. I had a very sturdy one made out of canvas with lots of pockets in the front.
They did a great job composing and cropping the photo. You did a great job sewing and modeling!
