So here is my reflection and the incentives and a plea.


There is something to be said for not trying to take these kinds of pictures.

First of all, there was not a mirror in the house where there would be enough light to take a picture without a flash, and you know what would happen if I did the flash.

And there was not one with space enough to actually back off and get the picture.

I think I need to redecorate.

So the mirror went outside temporarily. I had to stand on a stepstool to get the apron in the picture. And I am sure anyone who passed by thought I was totally out of my mind.

But don't you just love these cute aprons?

This picture turned out better. I'm not quite so cockeyed,and  most of the mirror is in the picture. But a piece of cardboard backing on that old mirror slipped out the back and the wind came up and the apron started blowing. And as short as my hair is, it is blowing, too.                                  The wind kept blowing for the last of the reflection pictures, but at least you can finally see the whole antique mirror (even though it is hanging crooked.)

So, those are the promised reflections. They are also some of  the promised incentives, because I will send one of those aprons to anyone who will sponsor my Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk for $25. It's next week, and I am way behind on raising the minimum I need to participate.

Here are some more pictures of the aprons.
























The floral one in the lower left is reversible, and the colors are more accurate in the reflection shots. Don't see your color? I hope I need to make another half dozen of these at least. Let me know what color you would like. Here are some detail shots.





Cindy sparked the run of apron making by giving me this one she had made. A lot more detail went into this. (All the pinks in these pictures are showing up awfully orange. They are not.) Can we have a bidding war?

Okay, I think I will wait and post quilt pictures tomorrow. For a sneak peak, click over to my 365 blog--link on the sidebar.

Weekend Reflections is sponsored by James at the Newtown Daily Photo Blog. My reflections are not quite what he had in mind, I would bet.

For more information about the Breast Cancer 3-Day, click my 3-Day Online Ambassador badge on the sidebar. To sponsor me, click my shoes. To understand why I am so passionate about this cause, visit my ABC Wednesday post for O.
In my first 3-Day my family and my school family came through for me, and I exceeded my goal shortly after walk weekend. In my second 3-Day, my quilting friends really came through for me. Both of these groups are still strong supporters, but I wonder if the bloggers can outdo them this year.

I suppose these are not your odd shots, lol ! I never wore an apron in my whole life. I think it is as easy to wash jeans then an apron. It reminds me of my grandma, lol !
But they are very beautiful for those who love to wear aprons.

Your reflection photos turned out great even the first one! And you aprons are very creative, it is a great idea. I would like to share you proposition of support/get an apron on my facebook page if that is alright with you?

I love the reflections and I love what you are doing to fight breast cancer. You have my support and prayers.

You slipped this in at the last moment and I almost missed it. :)

Have a great day!
