WOW!  This has been a CRAZY busy week.  I am so glad it is over.  The post man left me a wonderful surprise earlier this week in my mail box.   I joined an apron swap over at Sue's and Cherise from was my partner and I am so glad she was.  I am loving getting to know her.

This is the gorgeous apron she sent me.  Just look at the detail.  Purple bottoms, purple rick rack and the sweet ruffle at the bottom.  Cherise asked me what kind of apron I wanted and I asked her to surprise me.  (I just love surprises.)  And I am so glad I did I just  LOVE with my new apron. The fabric is so cute and I just love the look of rick rack and the pumpkins.  

Along with my apron Cherise made me these wonderful coasters.  I am just loving the pumpkins on the purple and she had wrapped them with the purple rick rack.  The card she made is so cute.  Cherise really did a great job and I am so HAPPY with my apron.  Thank you so much Cherise.

This is the apron I sent Cherise.  I decided to make it reversible.  On one pocket you can see the autumn leaf but due to my not so great camera skills you can not see the bumble bee on the other pocket.  This swap was so much fun. I am so glad I could be a part of it.
