98 aprons:

294m of twill tape

70m of pink gingham

10m pink fabric for pockets

30m of pink ribbon

2500 yds cotton thread

endless cups of tea, quite a lot of chocolate, lots of late nights, too much unpicking to mention, 4 trips to buy supplies, 2 internet orders (would have helped if I'd added up right so I could order enough the 1st time....) some star helpers - my mum who did some ironing so K and E had clean school uniform, my sister in law who cut out and ironed some aprons, and my hubby who kept me sane - (well almost) throughout, and now a fat cheque for breast cancer care.

oh and lots of pink scraps left over,

bunting anyone......

available over at my new blog shop driftwood and daisies

  9. How fantastic - what a bloomin' heroic task. Well doen Tess, time to lie down in a darkened room now with even more tea!

  11. I am raising my cup to you! Well done - there will be a place in heaven for you!

  12. 98?????woweee! I struggle to do more than 3 of anything! well done.
