i finished and sent out my apron for the summer apron swap. i hope she likes it. it is almost identical to the first apron i made. i chose the wider bias tape for this one, and i really think i like it better.
i really like how the pockets look. well what do you guys think?
below are the pics of the wonderful things that i received in my swap package.
these are place mats. aren't they awesome they roll up and tie. they are perfect. she even included blue flatware in one and green in the other. this is brilliant because green is monkey's favorite color and her highness tends to lean towards blue. aren't the strawberries on the pockets adorable.
this is the apron. i was soooo excited i opened the package at the post office and put it on. by the way alisha, the postmaster thought it was wonderful. i think that it is so much more than wonderful. i can't explain how thrilled i am. seriously, i can't stop grinning. she also included 3 recipes with the lovely apron. they are all WW friendly recipes that i can't wait to try. the double strawberry cheesecake sounds heavenly, i'll post pics. one of the coolest things is that this wonderful package came all the way from austria. it was like getting a pen pal only cooler. i never had a pen pal as a kid, but this is way cooler. the apron is so much prettier in person i just can't tell you. i'll be sure to use it this weekend as i'm making apricot preserves. mmmm.
i hope everyone has a great weekend. we're heading the booger town to pick apricots this evening. i'm looking forward to gifting people with yummy goodies, aprons, washcloths, bags, and pin cushions for Christmas this year.
