Squealing with Delight

As my husband headed out to check the mail this afternoon I told him to bring back a package with an apron in it. He came back from the mailbox with just a JoAnn Fabrics flyer. I was disappointed but thought maybe my apron from the summer fun apron swap would come tomorrow instead. Tonight my husband went to get the lawn mower out of the garage and came back with a package. The mail carrier left it by the garage. It was addressed to Nature Girl & I. We opened it to find two aprons. One for Nature Girl and one for me. Eeeeeeeeeeeeee! (This is me squealing with delight!) Afton sent the most beautiful aprons for us! Nature Girl was thrilled to have one of her own and I'm totally in love with mine! Yes, I'm wearing it right now even though I'm not in the kitchen and it's after 9:30 pm. I can't help it, I love it!!! Thank you Afton!

My apron is reversible. It's the stripe pattern on the back. It has the cutest U shaped pocket that ties in the center and has rick rack trim around it. My hand is covering the pocket in the picture so you'll have to trust me that it's cute.
I didn't plan the matching shirts but I did pick out our clothes today. I wasn't even aware that we matched until we were at the garden shop and the cashier pointed it out. We really match with our tee shirts and matching aprons.
I had my quilt guild meeting tonight. The potluck was delicious and the block swap was lots of fun. I used one of the pastel log cabin blocks I had sewn yesterday for the swap. This is the new block I got in the swap. Next month's block is a nine patch.

The fabric wrapped gift was this chocolate can filled with Lindt chocolates. The guild does a raffle each month. Tickets are a dollar each and the winner gets that month's prize. Then the next month the winner brings a new prize and the raffle is held again. It's lots of fun and the guild makes a little money. Since I won, I have to decide what to bring for the prize next month. Of course I also have to decide what to make with the blue fabric that was wrapped around the can.

You are so welcome! I had so much fun making it for you-- I also was tickled to make something for a little girl-- my boys are just not into aprons. Who'da thunkit??? hahaha! Have fun baking up a storm together!

You and Nature Girl are quite the stylish pair! Those aprons are adorable. And I love the block you won, with the little flower center. Does your guild do a different block each month, or do you do the same one for awhile so you end up with several blocks of the same type?
