From Jennifer

Jennifer sent me the cutest apron EVER!
And she included some AWESOME tuck-ins such as some measuring spoons, book markers, a pot holder that matches the apron, and the BEST Chocolate Covered Cherries that I've EVER had.
Thank you so much Jennifer!

Mary Lea Sent a Great Box

Long-time swapper Mary Lea sent just a cute box to Ellena!  They both agreed to make table runners instead of aprons.  LOOK!!!  I want one of each!

I snagged these pictures from our Facebook group -- don't forget to join there if you want a place to chat, too.  Just keep your posts on topic please -- I had to remove someone who only posted "sales" - and NOT apron-type sales!  =)

Molly Made It

Molly from Bee-Bops Party Wear is new here - everyone say "HI MOLLY!".  She sent me a few snapshots of her Cupcake creation.

What a fun reversible design.  Glad you played along, Molly!!

My package from Ellena!!

Today my hubby made a trip to the post office to pick up my parcel from Ellena....we had decided to make the cupcake fabric into table runners instead of the apron...and this is what Ellena made for me! She found such a cute Valentine fabric that matches the cupcake fabric perfectly!

Here is what else was in the parcel...chocolate...yummy....and a cute little notebook!  You can see the back of the runner here...with soft green and white polka dots...CUTE!!

Ok...I couldn't resist one more photo!  My Valentine's Starbucks Bearista, my Brambly Hedge tea beaker, teapot...and ....chocolates!!  A great swap!  Thank you so much Ellena!! I love it!!

My Apron From Tammy!!

Yeah!! I opened my front door just to see if the mailman had been here, and my package from Tammy had been delivered!! I was so excited to see what she had made for me!! Just look at this very cute apron!!
She also sent me some tissues, a magnet with note paper, Chocolate covered cherries and a lovely Valentine Card telling me how much she enjoyed making my apron! She did a lovely job on it, and I will cherish this very special apron for a very long time!! Thank you so much Tammy! You are a Gem!~! Happy Valentine's Day, jenny

What I did With The Fabric ....

Well, the apron that I sent my partner has arrived safely, so I thought I'd share with y'all the apron I made her.
Molly made me a gorgeous apron ............. I wore it before taking pics, so I'll pop it in the laundry and will take a pic just as soon as it's washed. Thanks Molly - it is a gem of an apron!!!
This Simplicity patterns is one of my all time favorites. I've used it OFTEN, and have loved the way it's turned out every time.

Shawnee, thank you for organizing this fun swap. It was a fun challenge to have to incorporate the lovely cupcake fabric.
