This is my favourite apron from the four (I have just counted them), that my DF and I got from his mother's unit when we were clearing up there. Somewhere, too, I am sure I have some patterns.

Hardanger Apron

This one is Battenburg, which was a special interest of hers. She wasn't one to entertain, so it was probably more the challenge and achievement of making a large piece, than making something to wear. The white would never have been practical.

Interested in more on aprons - pop over and check out Pamela Kellogg's blog. I'll be back later with the other three aprons from Flo's collection.

*Mea Culpa (and Thanks Joy)* I originally called this Hardanger, in a slip of the mind - I do know the difference (it IS Battenburg), just wasn't thinking. And I now know this is a Bazaar or Fete Apron - more about them one day soon.

Is this really harganger? It is very different from the usual. It is hard to see exactly by the photo.
