    This unit’s small size also helps make it the ideal complement to your family kitchen.
    The new features available within the new Black and Decker
    are essential for the good coffee-making machine.
    You is going to be happy knowing the amount money you’re going to save within
    the years to come using this type of great machine – and you also won’t miss the lines along with the aggravation either.

    Oh My Goodness!! I love my Rooster Apron and wear it whenever I cook (love roosters). My husband wears his vertical blue & white stripe one as well (he loves to cook) and he looks so professional. I never thought to wear it when doing crafts and sewing. But now I will have to make one with BIG pockets just for that. Next year I will be making several aprons with the fabric I bought recently just for that purpose.

    Mom would never be without one on. But, come bread baking day, she would put her special big bib apron on early in the morning and start the dough. Us kids would each have our apron (made from a flour/sugar bag) on and “help” with punching the bread and making cinnamon buns with “left over” dough. I have never tasted bread as good as Mom made, and I am in my mid-60′s now.

    Yep, “Aprons”, the best fashionable addition to a busy homemaker’s wardrobe.
    Now, you all put on your Aprons and get busy doing some homemaking!
    And Have A Happy Day!!!

    this is so funny, I don’t have an apron. My mother put her apron on in the morning and she wore it all day. She has since passed, but I will always remember her with her apron on. Now, I make aprons but give them as gifts…I guess I need to make one for myself. LOL

    As a homeschooling mom of five, I consider an apron to be part of my daily uniform. Since I practically live in the kitchen, I love my aprons to be comfortable as well as lovely. Sometimes when I dash out to drop off or pick up a kid, I don’t even bother to take my apron off! :) Aprons make me think of wonderful times in the kitchen preparing special meals for my family and friends, of baking, and of my precious grandmother that I lost almost 30 years ago.

    I wear them everyday. It’s the only way to save my clothes. :) I’m always on the look out for new patterns.

    No, I do not wear aprons but I think they are so cute. I have been sewing different styles for gifts to my daughter-in-law and granddaughter. Now I have requests to make several more for friends. When I am looking to make a new apron, I always am on the lookout for a new, different style apron and there are many out there. Sometimes it is hard to choose…..nj

    Aprons – grew up with them, wear them now, and am passing the tradition on to my daughter and her daughter. Aprons were always
    full of a “treat” in the pocket, warmth when tears were flowing, and
    fun picked veggies from the garden. When grandma put that apron
    on each Sunday after church, only good things were coming our way.
    Love, warmth, and a gentle way of living were all wrapped up in that
    apron. Hope the tradition never goes away.

    Before I started wearing aprons, I ruined alot of clothes. I find it absolutely neccessary for me! Besides I’m always taken with a new pattern idea and dreaming up how I can make it to suit me. I love picking up vintage apron patterns….they do bring back memories of the aprons my grandmothers wore.
