Giddy for Gingham

Hi old friends!!

I'm dusting off the ole' swap blog in the hopes that others might be interested in a little sewing project with a little less risk than swapping -- I'm thinking a Sew-Along!

But, before I reveal exact details, this is what's got me itchin' to be stitchin' ....

... I happened to see Meghan Trainor's catchy new video, "Dear Future Husband"



Her sassy little gingham apron caught my eye and pushed me over the edge!

I've been drooling over lots of gingham lately; it's experiencing a real comeback and I'm loving it. Check out this eye candy I've found on Pinterest:

And then more aprons ....!

I've got these and more on my Pinterest Board.  If you pin, let me know if you'd like an invite to add more gingham goodness.

February Update {Comments Needed}

Hi gals,

Well, our last few swaps have still had swappers that don't send or send late or don't thank their partners. 

Very disheartening. But I don't want to give up on my faithful sweeties. My swappers have been my buds for so many years!

So, how to proceed?  I don't know.  Open to suggestions.  I'm thinking small, maybe things that are sent to me first and then re-distributed so that if you don't send, you don't receive. 

Leave your ideas in comments.  And happy snowy Sunday!

The most lovely Christmas apron

Dec. 8
What a wonderful surprise I found in my mailbox today !     Mary, from Georgia sent the most beautiful quilted and reversible Christmas apron.   Her sewing skills put me to shame  ---- so beautifully done !    Tucked in, also, were labels, desk organizers, a charming Christmas mug rug --- even a new pincushion (How did she know I needed a new one?)    Thanks you, Mary.    Everyone will be envious about that apron !
