Aprons – A 31 Day Series

Aprons have their stories to tell, memories to share, secrets to hold. Whether we keep them for special holidays or wear them daily until our aprons are thread-bare, our apron are a part of the fabric of our lives. Aprons are an intricate part of my own life (have you noticed the name of this blog?) and I’d like to share my love of aprons with you.

Let’s play a game – remember that classic  word association game where I say a word and you tell me the first things that pops in your head? Ok! Ready? . . .

I say, “Aprons!” . . .

You say, ” {fill in the blank Would you consider sharing your response in the comments?}

The word ‘aprons’ brings a smile to most everyone’s face. You might talk about your apron as though it were a close friend. Or maybe you would share abou someone special who often wore an apron as they served and nurtured the family. Maybe the word brings back memories of church socials of long ago or holiday meals or just how much you’d like to adopt the habit of apron-wearing.

Whatever the word ‘apron’ brings to mind, I hope you’ll join me this month as I share wit you all things Aprons! I’ll have stories for you and patterns and all sorts of special things to share. I am including a list of all the posts in this series below to make it easy for you to follow along.

  1. This sounds like a delightful series! I’ll be following along!

    I, myself, have never gotten into the habit of wearing aprons, but my 13-year-old daughter loves to wear them, so my answer to the fill-in-the-blank is “Bekah”!

    • I’m so happy to have you come along, Cheryl :) Seems fitting that ‘Bekah’ is who comes to your mind, not just because she is your apron-wearing daughter, but also because MY Bekah is also my apron-wearing daughter! Out of 4 girls, she’s the only one who seems to be following in her mama’s footsteps. Now I’m wondering – what is your Bekah whipping up in the kitchen this week?

  2. Aprons are something that I generally don’t take the time to put on, but my sweet husband will gently remind me–because I need one! I’m not neat in the kitchen. And I will say that I am getting better about putting one on more recently–thinking of you as I slip it on. :-)

    • Your husband is a smart man 😉 I’ll be talking about the importance of wearing our aprons off and on this month. I’ll be smiling as I think of you thinking of me and both wearing our aprons!

  3. Special memories in the kitchen with really wonderful ladies! Food made with love and really yummy holiday meals! Also the official uniform of the happy homemaker! :)

  4. I love aprons because #1 I am messy! and #2 They were the first things I learned to sew without a pattern. I need to make a new one as soon as I can get to my sewing machine. It’s currently buried among boxes until out kitchen is done. I will absolutely be following along for this series!

    • I am messy too, Amanda. That’s a main reason I wear my apron daily. i cannot begin to imagine how many items of clothing that have been saved because I wore it :) I’m thrilled you are following along!

  5. Playing your game, my fill-in-the-blank answer would be “grandmother”. Aprons remind me so much of her.

    Therefore, I use aprons all the time! Mine are in need of repair. Or even replacing. But I love them!

  6. My fill in the blank word is: Grandma. My grandma Matheny would almost always have one on no matter where she was around her house in Marshall, MO. She had many aprons to choose from but most of them were of the tiny calico-print variety, and the full kind that covered from neckline to hem. I can still smell the newly gathered-off-the-clothesline apron and feel it’s crispness between my fingertips as I would try to tag along with her around the kitchen. Many is the time “Grandma, your apron!” could be heard before we scurried out the door to church on a Sunday morning. I don’t remember ever deciding I would be an apron-wearer, but I am. :)

  7. What a lovely idea! Aprons 31! You say Aprons, I say pretty, feminine, home-making and ahhh, My husband says I have enough aprons It isn’t true. I would 31 aprons! x

    • I do like the pretty, feminine aprons too, Lesley :) A girl really cannot have too many aprons! So glad you are joining me in my love of aprons. Blessings!

  8. Thank you for visiting my blog Linda. The word I thought of was Grandmother because she always wore an apron. I can just see her wiping her hands on it and removing it when ‘company’ came. But Keilee loves aprons too. I am going to follow along with your Apron posts and share them with my girl who adores Aprons. :) Love this.

    • Hi Karen! I think of my grandmother, too. And I’m hoping my grandchildren will remember me fondly wearing my aprons throughout their growing up years. I hope you and Keilee enjoy my series, and are encouraged – have a wonderful weekend.

  9. How fun! And unique! I only had one apron, from England, that my son brought back ffrom his visit there. (I’m not sure why! LOL) I rarely use it, but should. I am a messy cook!

    • thanks, Jessy :) being a messy cook is one main reason I wear an apron. I don’t have one from England, but I do have a couple made by my daughters for me. Maybe this series will motivate you to where that apron your son brought back for you!

  10. My mom got on an apron making kick a couple years ago, so I have several. My husband has one for grilling that makes his body look like Batman . . . it is a hoot! I also recently got a nice sewing machine and I want to make aprons for Christmas presents next year. I think this is a great series, very unique! When you say aprons, I think of my favorite apron. My aunt had leftover autumn-themed material from my bridal shower, so my grandma sewed it into an apron for me. I love it and wear it year round. :)

    • I love that image of a grilling batman hubby, Nathana :) I’m making a grilling apron for our son now, because real men wear aprons when they grill, right? A sewing machine is just the thing for gifting aprons! How sweet that you have an apron from your aunt and grandma – I enjoy wearing my autumn print apron especially at Thanksgiving time. So glad you stopped by for a visit today – I enjoyed my visit to The Engaged Home!
