What a week this was, started out with a ruined apron, on the day after I was supposed to mail it and ended with a new car…
I joined another apron swap last month, my first swap in over a year. It was great to be creating again and was I excited about the apron I had planned. It took a while for me to make my apron this time. The theme was polka dots and my partner liked pink and black.
I decided I was going to make my polka dots with my embroidery machine. It was not hard to do but it was time-consuming. I was done with this little bugger and when I took it out of the washing machine there were little bleached spots all down the front of it…. My heart sunk and it was back to the old Bernina.
I didn’t have to go to the fabric store, my stash had everything I needed.
I made it reversible so if she doesn’t feel punky one day, she doesn’t need to show it. She can just be polka dotty!
I really hopes she loves it and wears it often.
I, in turn received a fabulous apron in beautiful rich fabrics that’s fun and flirty.
It was Debbie, Miss Fabulous’ first swap and she scored an A++++.
I’m sure she’ll be a swapper for life now….
Well as I said in the beginning my week ended with a new car, yep Momma’s got a new ride…
Well until next time,,,, sew on girl, sew on…..
