Monday, February 24, 1936

South wind and thaws-
Cloudy and dull-
Done all the chores and got 2 bushels of corn from corn house-
Finished the 4th apron* for Mother and have one well started for Aunty-
Mother has been fine all day

Aprons for the March 1931 issue of Needlecraft magazine*

*Since Irene has made about 10 aprons in less than 2 months, I thought I would look around the internet & see what I could find. I found this great blog called Apron History where I found the above image. The blogger (Heidi) even has vintage 1930s aprons in her collection. She has some great images, tutorials, & vintage aprons.


  1. Thank you for mentioning my blog! I love reading old diaries, so fascinating to see into someone's everyday life long ago.

    1. Glad to help out a fellow blogger. I love old diaries too. Glad my dad approved of my project. I'm having a blast with it.


Thanks for visiting this flashback to 1936. I'm sure Irene would be pleased! We'd love to hear from you.
