I have been hoping to try out a couple of new apron patterns for myself and my ETSY shop-Olive Elizabeth’s Treasures, but the Egg Gathering Aprons have just been flying out to dedicated egg gatherers all over the U.S!
I have been combing the internet for some cute chicken fabrics to make the aprons from, but after receiving several shipments, I realize that most of the fabrics are printed with roosters only! No hens. They will even picture baskets and nests of eggs-no hens.
My grandma Olive once embroidered matching his and hers pillow cases with an old saying:
The Rooster crows,
But the Hen delivers the eggs.
I guess that saying still holds true-the hen does all the work, but those flashy roos get all the credit!
