Aprons and Mod Girls

Can you believe what I received in the May One Hour Craft Apron Swap, because I certainly can't?

This apron was made for me by my lovely 'new' 'blogger' friend Louise at Lululollylegs. I cannot believe how beautiful this really is and all the effort that Louise has put into making this masterpiece. She also made me the beautiful knitted dish cloth, a pink (my favourite) cookie cutter and recipe which all came in a beautiful pink apple shaped basket. The ruffles and gathers on the apron have to be seen to be believed, and the best thing about this apron, is that it is reversible. I just love the darts in the bodice and all the little details that Louise has done. The sewing is just beautiful.

It is so hard to believe that Louise does not know me in person, as this apron and everything she has sent to me, is just so 'me'. In a house full of males, it is so lovely to see the apron on my peg in the kitchen. The fabric is just gorgeous and I just love the way Louise has co-ordinated all the fabrics together so well. It truly is a beautiful piece of work (too good to use!!!)

So a very big thank you Louise, please, please be my swap partner again?

The apron is just amazing! I like the colours (which is saying something because pink is not usually a favourite!!)
