I used fabric scraps from the apron to make a few of the tuck-ins. The tuck-ins include a rug mug, a wire bird's nest pendant/keychain, a quilted kite and I sent along the Sunday Dinner apron pattern. It's the pattern I used to make her apron. I had a hard time sending off the kite as I loved it! The package is on it's way and yes I did send the kite along too. I hope she'll like the package I sent.
When it's filled with confections and surprises for the little lady of the house it's even more fun! I love her expression here as she opened a box with a sweet treat shaped like a diamond ring. Notice she's already wearing the apron Deidrea made for her.
We're on spring break so we headed outside for some pictures of our new spring flirty aprons.
Spring is finally in the air here. The new aprons and the spring weather lead to dancing and horsing around in our front yard and this upside down moment. The neighbors probably wondered what we were up to!
Not only did Deidrea send two aprons, but she included a beautiful stenciled dish towel, a sweet ice cream cone timer and a ceramic J. Thank you Deidrea! Nature Girl and I loved the package! The aprons are unique and beautiful!! Thank you!!!!
Well, my apron and tuck in’s are on their way to my partner..I will refrain from mentioning who she is in this post so I can show some of the goodies I sent! I want her to be surprised…
First, the apron~
then the goodies ~
that’s all I can show for now..be on the lookout sweet partner!
Look at all that goodness! She really set the bar high for swappers. What swap box doesn't like to have chocolate in it?
I GOT THE BUTTERFLY PIN CUSHION. I LOVE IT!.
Can you believe that the little soap and lotion in the bag are my favorite scent? I mean really - how did she do that?
And look at these - I got a hoot outta these!
Here are my initials:
I love all of them!
But wait we're not done - I bet you all want to see the apron too don't you? I saved the best for last!
I asked for an Easter apron (did not think Easter would pass on me i guess) and it didn't stop me from wearing it to make dinner last night either! Last year Regena sent me a cute Christmas apron, so I got the idea I would gather up aprons for each holiday - so now I have Easter!
Thank you Mary Lea for sending me so much love in the swap box! It really is all wonderful and I appreciate all your work and time to put it together for me.

What is the quilted fabric? It's a quilted, potluck, casserole, dish, carrier, holder, thing-a-ma-bob. You decide which initial!
I hope my partner likes all the goodies!

I have finished my apron and it goes in tomorrows Overnite mail to Shawnee. Due to unforseen medical complications I am late but hoping I will get to play again sometime. I am really proud of this apron and I made it reversible. I am showing one side that could go to almost any of you, the other side is a secret because I think if my partner sees it she will know it is for her.
I am pretty sure she will like all her goodies.

Hopefully, it will land in two to three day's time and I can see my partner's a happy face and an apron that fits!!!
(crossing my fingers on the happy part and the fitting part)
Should I say who my partner is?????

It is a shorter apron, so my partner wants to garden she can have this on and not have to worry about crawling all over it (at least that is my hope).
I appliqued a matching flower on the body of the apron and added a cute little ruffle.
My granddaughter is helping me come up with some of the tuck ins, but I will let my partner show those to you as I don't want to give to much away!
I had my tuck ins, fabric and no apron for several weeks.
Then luckily I had today off from work for Good Friday and the hubs did not!
I told him I'm sewing today - nothing else.
Here is a snack of what I put together.
