A Most Special Pinny Indeed...

During last week's Mrs B workshop at Hope and Elvis I didn't take any photos of myself (which is not surprising really is it!)
So I would like to say a big 'thank you kindly chuck' to the wonderful Miss Flaming Nora for letting me use this piccy.
However, I did need such a photo,(believe me I wouldn't inflict this upon you if it was not for the utmost of important reasons).
And the reason is this pinny.
It is no ordinary pinny.
It is a hand made, custom- embroidered and embellished wrap- around pinny made by the very talented Miss Debs.
She embroidered little sayings and snippets that have a special meaning.
The pattern was also drafted by Miss Debs and made from soft vintage French linen.
I shall treasure this forever and the lovely thing is that I know whenever it needs repairing, I can just add something to its history.
Thank you for stitching this with such care and love, every stitch holds such meaning.
Have I mentioned before that I love my pinny?!?
PS: Miss Debs can also be found on Instagram as @ dsg1964

Would you like to make a comment chuck?
I'd love to hear your thoughts, just a minute and I'll put the kettle on.
Custard cream or bourbon?
