A long serving colleague of mine, Miss Bea, has decided to retire. Needless to say she will be incredibly missed and as she is our go-to lady for all problems big and small, we will all be headless chooks when she leaves. She’s off travelling around Australia in a Camper-Van for the next few years. We’re all a bit jealous.
Many an hour was spent by the social committee trying to decide how to show her our appreciation. Eventually a high tea and a bespoke apron was decided upon – I was humbled to be asked to do the sewing.
The inspiration for this little number came from a friends apron. Miss Bee is a little more subdued in taste so we went for a more paired back look. We also decided to go for a reversible look as the fabrics were just too lovely.
I have to admit, I had performance anxiety over this one. I wanted it to be perfect and I REALLY wanted her to love it and she did. Nothing more satisfying than seeing someone love a gift. Unfortunately I only took one photo of the tea for my #100happydays project. Rookie mistake I know. What can I say, I was nervous.
What do you think? Would you love one too?
