|Cast Iron Dutch Oven|
|Amish Style Apron|
To my kitchen!!!!! I have been needing new pots for a long time and as I researched what type I wanted, I settled on cast iron. I will SLOWLY replace one pot at a time with cast iron. I was able to get this 5 qt dutch oven and will most likely get another one, a couple of 3 qt pots, a 1.5 qt sauce pot, a roaster, and a corn cob mold. Of course, this will be over a period of time, but they will all eventually be replaced. I also went to a local Amish store and purchased all of my herbs for the fall season...way less expensive, and as I was standing at the register, the young woman standing there had on the most beautiful apron. It was the exact type I had been searching for for about a year and a half or two. I could not believe my eyes. I asked her if she made it and she said yes, I made the others hanging in the back as well. Now HOW did I miss eyeing those? I couldn't tell you, maybe I was so engrossed in finding all the spices I had on my list. At any rate, I rushed to the back and looked at those available and found one that I loved!!!! Of course there were many others I liked equally as well, but that would have been way out of my budget.
I hope to draft a pattern from this one and make several more for various holidays. However, THIS is the pattern and style I like beyond all the others I've seen.
I'll be choosing to wear this one over the other two I have. I wonder if I should gift those to someone because I seriously doubt I'll wear them again.
Anyone in or near an Amish community that can snag a pattern for this style? You slip your arms and head in and this particular one has ties at the waist in the back. I simply adore it.
Yep, it's the simple things that make this girl happy!!!
