Sweet swappin'

I got home from a bbq tonight to find a little package on my front stoop... Could hardly wait to open the package- I am InLoveWithThisFabric. So on over to Scarlet Tananger and say hello to a very talented lady!
Look how fun this is- I got not only a great little apron, vintage pattern, crazy retro print- but also an oven mitt and a cool little recipe book- I think Scarlet scanned in fabric and printed out the pages for the recipe cards. It is so friggin fun- I need to have a dinner party- now- Apron Swap goodies
Thanks so very much!
There will be a flickr gallery for all to see the creative work that went down with this swap- I am looking forward to seeing what everyone drempt up...
This is the apron I created for Kim... a little picnic inspired dish towel apron-

Here is another dish towel apron that I finished last night for a wedding shower I am attending next weekend- I think it came out pretty cute~

I am off to play on the sewing machine....I feel as if my sewing skills need to be taken up a notch or two. I am no where near as handy on that darn machine as I would like to be...
My poor knitting needles are so sad and neglected- do you think they know that I am cheating?

Knitting, photography, sewing...it's all creating! Enjoy what you are doing. You'll want to knit this winter, no doubt. ;)

Your aprons are so cute. I love that recipe book your pal made.

they do know your cheating and the more insecure of the needles will try to poke you. well documented fact, so watch put. Love those aprons. wish I could sew :(

Your secret pal definitely loves her apron! And so do her daughters! :) Somewhere else I read that you were worried about the stitching and such, but don't be- the fact that something was created by your hands rather than a factory machine makes even more treasured! Thanks again!
