I'm sorry I jumped the gun and sent my package out early, but now that it's been received by San-Dee, feel free to check out this post on my blog to see her apron. It sounds as if it made her day--I had a blast making it.
BTW--I just found the recipe that I meant to include in the package sitting on my desk, so I'll post this vintage cookie recipe from my 95 year-old neighbor Wilma here for you all to enjoy. She brings us cookies a couple of times a month and my 2 1/2 year old son totally knows which house is hers as it's the one that always has cookies! This is verbatim Wilma.
Jo's Carrot Cookies (good)
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup shortening(I use butter)
1 cup cooked mashed carrots
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 Tbs lemon juice
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Combine in order given
Drop on greased cookie sheet
Bake 375, 10-12 minutes
Topping: Orange juice & grated rind-optional
Powdered sugar and a little butter
Can use any kind of juice in cookies and topping
I realize it's not the most comprehensive directions, but if you've baked before, you should be able to handle it. It's worth it, I promise!
Have a great weekend!
