The wife got the apron as a hostess gift. Her dear husband, another good friend of ours has his birthday on June 10. His wife loves the Broncos, and he loves the San Fransisco 49ers. The SF49ers happen to be my favorite team too. He's not a huge fan of aprons, and I wanted to do something nice for his birthday but not an apron. I found some pillow panels that I've had for ages. My father gave me the panels before he died. Dad died in 2007, and I don't honestly remember when Dad gave me the panels. I knew our friend would appreciate something with the 9ers.
This is the pillow I made. My DH took it into work and gave it to our friend there. Apparently it sat proudly on his desk all day.
