White Christmas Apron Swap

Considering the information I have for my swap partner I am hoping I have her style pegged! One of her favorite songs is 'O Holy Night' so I have ordered her a Christmas CD by Sara Groves.

Sara received her Bachelor of Science degree from Evangel University, a private Christian university in Springfield, Missouri. She has been nominated for three Dove Awards including "New Artist of the Year" in 2002 and "Special Event Album of the Year 2003" by the Gospel Music Association, was named one of the best Christian music artists of 2005 and "Album of the Year" for 2005 by CCM Magazine.

The album cover will serve as inspiration and speaks primitive to me. I can only imagine how clear that Holy Night must have been. There was no snow just lots of sand. I love the story entitled 'The Light Over Bethlehem' (love the little donkey). Here is an excerpt.

"Joseph must have fed that little donkey an extra bunch of hay and some oats that day, because the little lady was pretty heavy. He sat her on the animal, with a bag of water, some Sao biscuits, and walked beside them with a staff in his hand.

Up the road they start, the donkey is staggering. Oh, look at his burden. He's bearing the Christ to His birthplace. And the little woman sitting there, is in pain to be delivered, holding onto his mane, and speaking to the little donkey as they go along the road."

I am truly inspired and can't wait to start! I want to make a simple apron that can put up with abuse, throw it into the washer, pull it out of the dryer, no ironing, no worrying that it will get ruined kind of apron. That means clean lines and no ruffles. I think that is the kind of gal my swap partner is.
