Once upon a time ... apron swap

I finished my first BOM block for February, The Frog King by Bea in the Once upon a time series. There is only a golden button missing, that goes at the end of the wave. But I'm not quite sure if it will be golden. I think Bea did a wonderful job again. She also made the Quilter's Blessings BOM, which she will send to you by email in return for a fat quarter.
And now I get to start the second block of the Verandah View BOM, Bath time. Cheryl already gave a sneak peek of her March block!

And today my dear postman brought me my apron swap parcel. Karen was my secret swap partner. Look at all the beautifully wrapped presents that were inside!

And here you can see them unpacked ...
I was overwhelmed by all the beautiful goodies Karen added! She also added a long list of 'Quick Valentine Gift Giving Ideas' on red paper. WOW!!!
I have to protect the cute pink Teddy Bear, otherwise Laura will have it with her soon.

Here's a detail of the apron and ...


TA DA ... THE APRON
Now isn't it gorgeous!!! The fabric is so very cute and I love the pattern!
Even Bibi our sweet beagle can't keep her eyes off the apron.
THANK YOU SO MUCH KAREN !!!

Oh, your block is so cute. I love the background fabric ... is it linen and your stitching is so neat. Wish my lazy daisy stitches were as good as yours!
You look very happy and COOL in your new apron. Isn't it fun when swaps arrive.

I love your "Once upon a time" block. I am eager to start on something new, but first have to finish the quilts from last years BOM's.

Ich grüße dich ganz herzlich,

Your stitchery is beautiful. The swap gift is great and the apron just as cute as can be. Maybe you can make Bibi a matching bandana/kerchef?

Karen zei

Hello Simone, You are going to look very stylish in your apron when you are cooking!! Bibi is such a beautiful dog and the photo of you is lovely. Best wishes, Evonne xx

I love your apron but then when they are so nice I am reluctant to wear them in the kitchen because they get so messy LOL. My son would love a beagle we have 2 Jack Russells so he will have to wait until he moves out.
