Aprons, Contests and Bread

Dear friends and I are going to spend a day in the near future to bake bread and make aprons to give to those who need prayers and to help with their Thanksgiving dinner. It will coordinate with the National Tie One on Day on November 26th.


"National Tie One On Day™ celebrates the humble apron and the spirit of women of earlier generations who donned the universal symbol of home, family and mothering as the uniform of their daily wardrobe and helped make America the great country it is today. On the day before Thanksgiving, EllynAnne encourages us to pause in the preparation of our own meal, wrap a loaf of bread in an apron, tuck a prayer or note of encouragement in the pocket, and tie one apron, of course!, and deliver the wrapped bundle to someone in need of spiritual or physical sustenance. According to EllynAnne, no matter which way you turn out of your own front door, someone who is deserving of a hug is very close by. “Women clad in aprons have traditionally prepared the Thanksgiving meal,” says EllynAnne, “and it is within our historical linkage to share our bounty.”

EllynAnne is holding a contest for one of her books or aprons. Go to her blog page and leave her a comment to be entered.Apron Memories Blog

Hope my local friends will join me that day for making bread and aprons....
