The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is celebrated annually as National Tie One On Day . . . tie on an apron, that is! Participants pause in their busy Thanksgiving preparations to make or purchase an apron and gift it to a friend or neighbor along with a freshly baked loaf of bread. National Tie One On Day provides the opportunity to return the “give” to Thanksgiving by simply sharing a kind gesture. You can read more about it here: Apron Memories.
Last Wednesday, I spent the afternoon sewing up this apron for a friend. She was out of town with her family for the holiday and should be home this evening, so I haven’t given it to her yet. This morning, I baked a loaf of cinnamon bread to give with the apron. (Actually, I baked two, so I can tell you for sure that it is very yummy!) I hope she likes the apron and the bread, and I pray that it will bring a smile to her face and joy to her heart. (She has a way of always doing those things to me every time I’m around her!)
It’s all packed up and ready to deliver tomorrow! (Don’t you love my “upcycled” gift bag?)
Oh I love it~ as always Bonnie! Did you use a pattern? I’d love to make one for someone. You are a blessing!
Love this idea! And your apron and bread both look beautiful! 🙂 What a sweet gesture!
