Look at what I got!

See what Sally sent to me? Isn't this great? I can't imagine the amount of time she put into the detail on this apron. The pictures just don't do it justice! I believe she used the technique called "chicken scratch", correct me if I'm wrong. All of the darker stripes on the apron are stitched by hand using the method. She used rick rack, then green embroidery thread to stitch over it to get the "rope" effect. I received it in a clean pizza box with stickers all over, chocolate molds, recipe cards, a pen and two yummy sounding recipes that I'm looking forward to trying. All of this for a very grateful stranger on the opposite coast of the US. Sally, my words are not enough. Thank you for this big blessing!
