Yesterday I was leafing through a popular Style magazine at my hairdressers when I came across this result of a recent poll. I perked right up and pulled out my point and shoot to show you.
Sure. ..their red is a bit orange but otherwise they are right on target with our cookbook colors.
Last summer when the design began to form in my minds eye. ..
I decided I wanted to create aprons as a surprise for the girls.
In June . .
I spent hours at various fabric stores and quilting shops laying fabrics side by side to come up with 10 different aprons that would all work together.
The lady at the fabric store had patience and a gracious spirit as I flipped and flopped on my choices.
Once I had my bundle of fabric home I began to lay and cut the fabric and by that time I was beginning to wonder what had possessed me.
I set aside a week from the actual recipe work to sew aprons and as they came together I could hardly wait to share with the girls what I now saw as the cookbook colors.
when they were all finished I went straight to the clothesline to pin them side by side. .
shoulder to shoulder. .
all unique. .
all beautiful . . .
and united in their common passion.
There are so many stories behind the scenes of the creation of the cookbook.
The stories will all be told over the next while by all of us.
Thank you for coming with us on our journey.
We'd love to meet you at one of our book signings.
