Apron Fabric and Notion Combinations

Today I am fooling around with some fabric and notions trying to figure out some combinations.
It gets mind boggling at times and I love all fabrics so it is a fun labor....
Do you like any of these?

Michele for you to look at
I now know why those websites say colors may vary from photos....
The fabric in the middle is fabric shown with notions
The fabric at bottom here would have to have pink or white chicken
This is the fabric with the notions above
Michelle this is showing up much deeper in color than it really is because it is much softer
this is showing up some darker also it is a little paler
This is showing a little darker with a green tint, it is yellow actually.
Much darke in detail than other two...would have to have another color rooster

I am using some inspiration from a friend and my vintage and very frail pattern

I realize this is a rather boring post but wanted to get some fabrics on.  Maybe you will tell me your likes and dislikes as for color combinations. I will shortly be sewing full time after this canning is done in the kitchen look out....sewing machine will be smoking!
Oh I will show you the finished products...
Well that is what is happening in the creative way today
Just received a shipment of excellent fabric from Quilt in a Day....can't wait to dig deeper into that huge box 

Hope you all are creating in some form or fashion out there...
Thanks for visiting
