Once Apron A Time ...

I loved taking part in the pincushion swap and have signed up for another swap.
This time I'll be making an apron.
Sarah at Red Gingham has taken on the huge task of organising the swap. (Thanks Sarah!!)

It's an exercise in crafty logistics with names and addresses being swapped, emails flying across the world and swap partners dropping by blogs to introduce themselves.
My apron swap partner is Jenny who lives at Winnibriggs House in the UK. Jenny told me she's a fan of shabby chic and Cath Kidston.
As we say in Australia, no worries Jenny!
I hear you ... and what's not to love about gorgeous pastels and spring florals, spots and stripes .

I'm looking for some lovely fabric to create something special. My sewing skills are pretty basic ... but you can be sure I'll pour my heart into this project.
What fun.
And there's nothing like a deadline to get the creative juices flowing.
Drop by again to see my progress.

Oh I'm excited for her! I'm sure you'll find something just perfect. Well done for getting on with the job. I have mind cut out and waiting on the floor. I hope it doesn't have to wait too long!

Now I really do feel special!. Just popped by to apologise for blatant giveaway plug before I checked my blog comments. For lo and behold you had already joined in. Thank you and good luck in the draw and now I must away to create a masterpiece for you
