I began the process thinking I would create an apron based on memories, but it evolved into fantasy. My apron incorporates images from the past and present that I use to keep myself grounded, thus "protecting" me as an apron should. The circles aligned down the center represent the chakras (centers of distribution of energy throughout the body). Each circle displays the corresponding chakra color, but the symbols within are my own. The inspirational words in the bark of the tree are from yoga and NIA classes (thank you Lisa and Myrna). The colored ruffle that creates the apron strings is the aura that flows around us. The imagery is not meant to be a religious statement, but rather represents a journey of self awareness. Special thanks to my Pattern & Seamstress Diva Nancy, my sensei and all my friends who helped me to perfect my vision. Enjoy your journey.
