Tutorial Links

So, I've been scouring the internet for some fun tutorials you can use for tuck-ins.  I have updated the sidebar with goodies like this:

Let's get crafting!  Tuck-ins are YOUR choice (not initials like last time - sorry for any confusion), so you can make a few goodies whenever you have a little extra time before you get your partner assignment.  =)

NEW Swap -- Flirty ALOHA Apron Swap

Well, summer weather has FINALLY hit Oregon and I'm feeling SO much better.  Work seems like we're almost through the mad rush of the end of the school year and other not-so-fun stuff due to budget problems, so I'm getting home a little earlier, too, and starting to feel alive in the evenings (and my family is grateful).  But enough about me .... this is about sewing Adorable and Flirty APRONS!!

These images inspired the swap theme for this summer ....

Because I'm trying for a less stressful swap this summer, I AM limiting this round to past participants only. I will allow you to register if you've been successful in a past Sassy Apron Swap, Sassy/Flirty Apron Swap, Hot Mama Apron Swap, with verification from the swap mama.  Thanks for your understanding.

Here are details:

Deadline to Register: June 30
NO NEW SWAPPERS this round - sorry
Mail Between: July 16 - 23

Create an amazing "Aloha Apron" – a special apron that makes you think of the islands, of beaches, of summer! Please include some inexpensive summer goodies to make a fun package (minimum of $10 in value in the tuck-ins).

If you sign up, you are agreeing to send 2-day priority and get a tracking number for delivery confirmation, post lots of pictures, and send me messages when you send and when you receive. Fun, huh??

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER then comment below so we know you're IN!

PS - Everyone who was interested in the discounted Spring Fling Apron pattern from Jan Lutz, the Apron Lady, can click HERE to order from her Etsy shop.  I'd love it if every swapper went on to Etsy and made her shop a "Favorite" to show her some Flirty Apron Swap love.  I will also have a special giveaway from Jan over at the Apronista (three NEW patterns AND fabric) so be sure to enter there by June 30!!

My trip to Oregon!!!

Oregon is the most beautiful city to fly into! So green! I went to watch my neice graduate from high school!! Congratulations Veronica! I didn't sleep much, and I am making up that sleep as we speak...

I had the pleasure of meeting our very own Flirty Apron Swap Momma, Shawnee!! Yippee!!! I had a blast shopping in the Fabric Depot, and a very cute quilt shop that I could have spent much more time in. Shawnee's daughter Tatum came with us, and I hope she had a great time.
Oh yes, and guess what Ladies!!!!...I have my fabric for the next swap!!, but until Shawnee announces what the theme is, my lips are sealed!!!!!!!LOL!!!!!!!!

My life has been blessed to meet Shawnee and her sweet daughter Tatum...lovely people that shine above most!!

Antsy in my pantsy!

Anyone else getting anxious and loopy with anticipation of the apron swap? I'm going through withdrawls. My new sewing machine is going to be delivered tomorrow and I want something to sew (like I don't have a whole list of things that I have said I would make for my little one). I know Shawnee is super dooper busy so I'll patiently wait. :)
