Apron Swaps

Today is the day! The beginning of September, Spring, and Wattle Day.

To me the most important is the fact that today, after showing great fortitude in not peeking, of opening my apron from my swap partner. When it arrived I carefully stored it in a bottom shelf of the hutch ... I hate bending down that far; the temptation was thus reduced.

I slept in this morning. The moment I entered the kitchen I made straight for the bottom shelf, removed the parcel which I had left in the postage bag. It was carefully wrapped in pink paper patterned with shoes and flowers. Very pretty. Had I been tempted to peek that paper would have caused major difficulties! I unwrapped the paper, found a selection of teabags, AND the apron.

It is soooo me! I have always preferred black as my base colour, and since my hair has faded to gold and silver, have taken to wearing red as a contrast. The apron has a black background, is covered with red cherries [scrummy looking!], and white cherry blossom, and edged with white ric rac. It has a sleek black lining. I love this apron!

The apron I sent as my swap effort is a cupcake apron.

P.S. I was about to bin the posting packet when I felt something else inside. A sweet little purse lay hidden in the depths of the bag!!!
