|I sewed my chicken apron up using a basic|
butchers/chefs apron style.
This month the Enchanted by Sewing Podcast will be about sewing aprons, and my mother's attitudes towards them.
I sewed my now well-worn chicken apron, in celebration of my neighbors flock. One of the chickens, who her young son named "Laurel Chicken" because we both had red hair (!),
used to make it through the fence between our houses and come to mine to spend the day and lay eggs. I once found a nest under a redwood tree in the back with ten eggs, eight of which were still in good shape and made a very nice pear soufflé.
Laurel Chicken has been gathered to her fore-mothers now, but the apron lives on. Every time I tie on my chicken apron, I think I can see a little flick of red tail feathers beneath the farthest back redwood tree. I wonder how a soufflé would go over on the Thanksgiving table :-)
Sewing garments that reflect on my life and my friends is the kind of thing that keeps me....
