My memories of aprons are tied (!) to my grandmother, Katharine Fuller Barry. "Kitty" was the quintessential Grandma, baking goodies and kissing hurt fingers, listening and soothing. She was much adored by her family and friends.
Her favorite place in the world was her rustic cabin in Wisconsin's north woods, appliqued here on the apron. I drew the cabin from a photograph, and then cut out and fused the pieces to the background. A friend helped me draw a perfect oval shape in which to highlight the cabin, making it more like a bubble enclosing a dream or memory. Grandma herself appears here on the porch, looking out at the lake. On the reverse side of the apron is her view of Dugout Lake, a photograph printed onto fabric, using an inkjet printer.
