Where did the summer go????

OK, I am in snow country where the summers are hot and the winters are cold ... so 70 degrees in Aug? lows in the 50's?  unheard of!  And my garden had been doing soooo nicely and I was looking forward to lots of great stuff still to come, with 4 to 6 weeks yet of hot weather .... I may have to start planning on having the same length of growing season as Alaska if this keeps up.  I actually love the cooler temps but I also love to have a great veggie garden, oh well, not a thing I can do about it!

So this month has been crazy busy with gardening, canning and sewing aprons.  Good news is that Black and white Houndstooth twill is back in stock.

Update on the Egg Gathering Apron

If you look back in my posts to 2010, you will find that I introduced a half apron for gathering eggs.  This apron was designed for a friend her had gotten a couple of new chickens. Two years later, I was approached by a national chicken feed company to provide them with a whole bunch of these aprons for a promotion they were doing. During the course of our conversations they asked me about a full apron style.  So that is how the full apron for egg gathering came about. 

The apron that I created for them was very similar to this one, but instead of ties behind the neck I used the slide adjustment that you will find on my current aprons.

So over the past couple of years I've continued to offer this style in a bit larger size and in different fabrics, it has never been hugely popular but I've sold a few a year. This is the main reason that I've never offered it in a lot of variety.
The pockets are great for all kinds of harvesting, not just for eggs.  I also use one for gardening.

I've been thinking about updating it and offering it in a Crossback style too, similar to my chef's apron with the crossback straps.  So with all of the interest I whipped one up
it is also available in Navy or Red, too ... you can order it here https://www.etsy.com/listing/173709721/egg-gathering-apron-crossback-black-with?ref=shop_home_active_2
The straps are actually convertible as I put the loop at the end of the strap and not on the apron, that way if you want to pull the straps through at the waist you can tie it behind your neck and at the waist .  I will post a picture of that option.
If you are interested in one of these aprons (I can make them in a smaller size), you can order it through my website www.timelessaprons.com   or from my etsy shop at
