Another Apron Wearing Homemaker!

We recently had the pleasure of assisting our friend, Mrs. Corey Halterman, in the assembly of an inaugural piece of Prairie Muffin attire. (see point 11)

Miss Andrea helps Leah with her new serger while I am laying out fabric & pattern pieces from Jenny Chancey's Edwardian Apron Pattern All of a sudden the usually very quiet Miss Andrea whoops and hollers! Was she stung by a bee? No, she is frozen in a state of awestruck wonder at how simple it is to thread Leah's serger. One puff of air shoots the thread all the way through the machine and it's ready to sew. Wow!

Let's test it out.

Binding the edges, we're almost done.

"......I believe women come nearer fulfilling their God-given function in the home than anywhere else. It is a much nobler thing to be a good wife than to be Miss America. It is a greater achievement to establish a Christian home than it is to produce a second-rate novel filled with filth. It is a far, far better thing in the realm of morals to be old-fashioned than to be ultramodern. The world has enough women who know how to hold their cocktails, who have lost all their illusions and their faith. The world has enough women who know how to be smart. It needs women who are willing to be simple. The world has enough women who know how to be brilliant. It needs some who will be brave. The world has enough women who are popular. It needs more who are pure. We need woman, and men, too, who would rather be morally right that socially correct......." -excerpted from Peter Marshall's Keepers of the Springs
