Rainy Night's Daughter is an Apron Goddess

Paula from On A Rainy Night is sharing pictures of her daughter wearing a couple of very nice aprons.

Here are a couple of aprons I made. My daughter, Shilo, is the model. She is wearing her "Day of the Dead" apron in her very first kitchen. She doesn't like to cook, but when she moved into her own apartment she informed me that she needed an apron, so "Day of the Dead" was born.

Paula picked out some fantastic fabric. It is very fitting for this time of year too. After all Halloween is right around the corner. Celebrated in Mexico as "Day of the Dead" which is also known as "All Souls Day" on November 2nd.

The second apron is a Japanese-themed apron that I made for a swap. We were to make an apron for our swap partner that represented their dream vacation. My partner wanted to go to Japan, so I found some beautiful Japanese motive fabric and paired it with a silky gold for the trim. The pocket is in the shape of a fan.

What a gorgeous apron! The cherry blossoms are stunning and I love the fan for a pocket. I think Paula nailed this apron for her partner. I hope she loves it as much as I am admiring it.

Fall is finally here and Paula is sharing some incredible recipes for Squash and Sausage Pot Pie and Caramel Apple Upside-Down Cornmeal Cake. You can check it out HERE and HERE. They are going to be prepared at some point in my kitchen.

Don't be shy Apron Goddesses, go say Hello to Paula at On A Rainy Night...
