Tie One On Day

November 24 2010 - National Tie One On Day

It's Tie One On Day!
Here's a poem to celebrate with.
When I used to visit Grandma.
I was very much impressed,
by her all-purpose apron,
and the power it possessed.
She used it for a basket,
when she gathered up the eggs,
and flapped it as a weapon,
when hens pecked her feet and legs.
She used it for a hot pad,
to remove a steaming pan,
and when her brow was heated,
she used it for a fan.
It dried our childish tears,
when we'd scrape a knee and cry,
and made a hiding place
when the little ones were shy.
Farm produce took in season,
in the summer, spring and fall,
found its way into the kitchen
from Grandma's carry all.

Today is Tie One On Day, so I handed out the aprons I have been making.

Here are the final aprons.

The AC.
It is called the AC cause it went to my Aunt Connie.

I'm in love with this fabric.

Aunt Connie seams to like it too.
Thanks for posing Aunt Connie!

 Here she is with my dog Milly (the black one) and my cousin Ozzy.

I usually don't dress my dog up, but she is old and she has a short hair cut and she shivers every morning so I had to get something worm for her.

This is the Owl Attack apron.
It went to Tia Pam because she gave me an owl candle.

I couldn't resist the rick rack.

So I added it to the waistband.

And the pocket.

Cordelia tried to take credit for the apron.
Wait, I made the apron!
I don't think Tia Pam believed her.

  As I was busy running around making and delivering aprons Oadie held down the fort and took care of business back at the studio.

Um, Oadie, I told you to sort those files, not sleep on them.
Not sleep.

What a help.  A demotion may be in order.

Happy Tie One On Day
~Melisa & Cordelia
