Blogger lockdown/flower apron sneaky post

I am sort of on restricted blogger use at this time, due to my long list of must makes for the Bazaar bizarre.

I am sneaking now to show you another naughty thing I did which was finish this custom apron for the owner of Blue House Flower Farm, she sells her fresh cut flowers every Saturday at the Sunset Valley Farmers market. Her beautiful bouquets range from $3- $30 and are absolutely the freshest flowers in town . I usually get a small mixed bunch and it will last clear till the next bunch arrives ( a week or longer).
Anyway the apron was super fun to make and I really just adore it. The skirt is a vintage three panel piece that I have been hanging onto for nearly a year ( it was waiting on its owner to request an apron). I made a special little embroidered patch with the words flower farm...
~and placed that in front of an appliqued blue linen house and an appliqued
small flower garden

I also appliqued a small bunch of cut flowers on the pocket as well.
~The decorative pink buttons are vintage

It was a sweet color break for me away from my fall color binge I have been on lately. OK gotta boogy ...this is already too long
thanks for looking
