They say every other generation repeats itself.  I think that could be the same as going back to the future.  My spin on this theme was my mother's mother who was a cooking fool and always had a dress and an apron on.  She died in 1955 when my mom was only 18.  Her name was Katherine, Kate for short and I was named after her, in fact I am the eleventh Katherine.
So I dedicate this swap to her.
Loved working with the 1950's side panel apron pattern.  The irony is, I found egg fabric, chicken wire fabric, appliqued a chicken on and finally, the chicken goes in the soup - LOL.
My partner is a very fun loving lady and my hint is: 
"The rooster rules the roost but the chicken rules the rooster"

  2. This is really cute! I LOVE chickens and roosters. I had to move a rooster I got for the center of my table because Brie said he was always staring at her and it creeped her out.
