Wonderful package!

I received a most wonderful package from Grace. It sat at the post office for nearly a week before I was able to pick it up. No pictures from me because I've hardly been home at all. The apron is just lovely and a had no idea there was such a thing as peanut butter and jelly filled chocolate!! Amazing!

Packages mailed?

Hi gals,

I know lots of us were mailing a bit late this year, even me, but I haven't heard from everyone yet.  PLEASE drop a quick email and let me know your apron status.  My goal was for everyone to have your packages out (and hopefully in hand) before the rush of Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the general hustle and bustle of Christmas. 

Love ya all!

It's a Neon Christmas

My partner loves non-traditional Christmas colors and I had so much fun!  Here's a peek of the apron I made:

The word I chose is CHRISTMAS!!   Can't wait until it arrives.  =)

It's on it's way...

Dear swap partner.... your apron is on it's way! Wahoo!
Although I choose the word JOY,,, there are more than 3 goodies on their way...
 J-O-Y.... is what I hope this will bring to you...
 I am an avid recycler/re-purposer so I repurposed a pre-quilted flannel to make your apron... then machine embroidered HoHoHo on the pocket and added some sweet yoyos for festiveness.
I included a lot of goodies for you as well.... so, watch your mailbox... it should arrive Friday.
Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a very Merry Christmas....

A teaser!

This is a quick look at the fabrics I used! I love this fabric!

I didn't have a model so it's tied to my Newell post lol
