THE APRON REVISITED


Here she is, my darling granddaughter, displaying her culinary expertise in her new apron. You have to admit that it looks cuter on her than on the hanger! Becky is a testament as to what can be accomplished in a college dormitory kitchen! We mostly call her Becky, but when she was about five years old she decided that she wanted to be called "Becksterama the Cool One", and that kind of stuck. Well, at least the "Beckster" part stuck. But you have to admit, she is a "Cool One"! You can tell she is shy, can't you? Ha!
While Mrs. Goodneedle and Cheryl at Polka Dots and Rick Rack, are enjoying the thrill of new grandbabies in their families, I have to admit that "old" grandbabies are quite awesome as well!
On another note, Lyn, at Welcome to Bluebird Quilts, is looking for a name for a lovely blue and white quilt that she made. She is asking for suggestions, and giving a prize to the winning name. Go visit her and be sure to scroll back and see this quilt as it progresses. The quilting on it is wonderful too!
My youngest son has been here visiting for the past few days, so more on that later!
Have a happy day!

She looks very "Beckster Crocker!" What a fun girl to have around!

Beckster Crocker, indeed! Too cute!! Yes, I am enjoying this brand new phase of grandparenthood, but am also eagerly anticipating each and every stage... your grands are precious!

Cutey, cutey apron and girl too! And talented, too. I really like that little ruffle on the apron, it just makes it that much more darling.

What a lovely girl!

I just wanted to say your Indian Paintbrush quilt is one of the prettiest quilts I've seen for ages.

Oh, Marcie, she should model, she always looks great. She is so cute in that apron!

Imagine coming up with a name like 'Becksterama' at the age of 5!! She sure is a cutie and looks like she's lots of fun, too!

Karen said...

What a cute apron. I don't remember aprons being that cute back in the 50's when they were so popular.

Mary said...

She is mighty cute but I'm really happy with NO grand babies at this point! Hopefully my boys will wait several more years before providing us with any!
