I received my apron from the swap! I ran to the mail box this morning, thinking, and hoping it was there! And look what lay waiting for me! This fabulous apron made by Stacey.
I love it. Right now everything is about polka dots, they bring so much happiness to me. How did she know?
I am a quite a playful person, and this apron fits everything about me. RED AND PINK! What could be better than that? I love the waist band, and the flounce on the bottom, so cute.
Stacey, thank you so much for such a great apron. I absolutely love it. Thank you for the time you put into it, and thank you for sending it all the way to Utah. You are much appreciated.
Ladies, this swap has been such a great experience. Thank you for including the Utah chapter.
You will see many a more posts from these ladies in the next months to come.
Cheers! And God bless.
(I would have worn the apron, but my husband is out of town, and Aiden hasn't mastered the art of taking a picture yet. I will post one later. :)

I love pleated Ruffles - they just add an extra something to project. And there are so many lovely talented ladies that make truly fabulous tutorials on how to do them. They make something that looks so hard - and make it understandable. Check out this TUTORIAL HERE.

I was the lucky recipient of this! Can you say JACKPOT! Maren's mom, Molly, decided to show off not only her sewing skills, but her needlework as well. And, I got matching potholders. When the UPS guy showed up on my doorstep, I pretty much grabbed the box out of his hands and ripped it open. I knew it would be great, but this is awesome! It was also kind of fun to look at the interfacing on the back side, the step I usually skip when making aprons. I thought to myself, "so this is how is supposed to be done." I'm taking notes from a master apronista!
It reminds me of some of the aprons my grandma's wore when I was little. The embroidery just makes it all the more vintage and the daisies are so cute! I can't wait to bake while sporting this apron. This apron is priceless!

This was made by Christie for me. I love it. Infact, I almost bought this material at Joann's. She really did a great job - I especially like the details she added to it. Check out the double-sided pocket. I also love the ribbon & ric rac across the bottom.
I got my apron from Aubrey yesterday in the mail, and I was so excited! And that excitement only increased when I saw ric rac, pink polka dots and a cute halter top pattern all at once!!! Aubrey you did a phenomenal job and I absolutely love this apron!!! Thank you for putting the time and effort into it, I love it! And actually I bought this apron patter the other week when the patterns were only one cent and now I really want to do it because it is so darn cute!
