So crazy I thought about sending my model off with the swap package!
She may look cute, but she's been pretty rotten lately!
My tuck ins...well, I hope the vacuum sealer works because some items are perishable. And I HOPE my partner likes to cook :/ I forgot to check on that one!
Anyway, hopefully I see a happy swap partner post soon?
I received my beautiful apron and swap goodies from Tammy..I hope she has received mine by now..
First, a stunning ruffly apron
Sorry for the funky picture, hubby took it with my phone camera that he isn’t very good at using..pretty hard to take a picture of myself, and I would have had my hair and makeup been done, but alas one of those days I just languished and was lazy..
And some awesome goodies, Tammy really gave thought to what I liked!
A lovely card, thank you..and a cute little sign that says “The Rooster May Crow, But the Hen Delivers the Goods’ Perfect! Also, a spoon rest with a rooster on it. I have never had a spoon rest before, honest I have been wanting to get one..so perfect, Tammy you were reading my mind! Also some Roostery cocktail napkins and recipe cards…
All are so appreciated..I am so glad that Shawnee partnered us and hope you are happy with the package I sent to you!

God Bless You!
cutest apron ever!! Janice did such a fabulous job...the fabrics are perfect...it fits me just great...I've hardly taken it off since I put it on! AND that was not all...because Janice also sent me a CATH KIDDSON pattern book (swoon)....I almost fell off my chair when I opened it up...I am so in love with her fabrics...and ...and...oh my gosh....I've never even seen a sewing book of hers before...how generous! AND Janice also whipped up some very dear pot mitts made of jean pockets...all bound up with fabric to match my apron...she posted a sneak peek below, and my camera has decided to go on the fritz now. Sorry! What a wonderful parcel Janice!

Just in the nick of time..the only excuse, sorry that it is, for my being so close to the deadline mailing making me freak out, is that I couldn’t decide on which fabric to use. I am sooo glad I used what I decided to use, because I think it turned out really awesome..I know I am such a bragger!
Here is a sample of my fabric that I chose so just a tiny hint of what’s to come..
and various tuck ins ready to goooooooo…and they are OFF!
I hope Tammy enjoys her package from me, I had such a nice time sewing and putting it all together for her! Nuttin’ fancy, but the love is in there Tammy!
Thank you Shawnee for putting this fun swap together for us, I was really starting to have apron swap withdrawals!

For tuck in's I gave Mindy some ceramic bird nest tiles that I had made years ago. Maybe Mindy can get you a picture because I haven't found the pic yet ( I'll keep looking). I also included a cute set of measuring spoons that I located at a gift shop.
I always name my aprons but I didn't want to name it until Mindy saw it. I had a few options and one was Mindy's Change of Heart. She decided after getting her apron that, that was the perfect name.
Great swap! Great partner!
