I've Been A Very Good Girl.

At least that's what I'm telling myself! Because I never win anything, but I've won two blog giveaways in the last few weeks. I'm a VERY lucky girl. My first big win arrived today in the mail. An absolutely FABULOUS apron from the very lovely Sarah at A Stitch in Time.

Sarah was much too modest about this apron when she blogged about it here. It's perfect. I love it. It's just my style. If only you knew Sarah ... it's just my style! The front is made of denim and the pockets are adorable birds. (Much to Gurney's dismay, I love birds!)
















And Wow! It's reversible. Look at the cute fabrics on the back. SweetiePie (aka FutureDIL) graciously agreed to model the apron. (Isn't she a cutie? She got new little leopard print shoes -- TheFirstChild and I were making fun of her, so I told her I'd include them in the picture!)So, Sarah! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I'm feeling a little guilty because you gave up this apron because you already had one and here I sit with several aprons, but I can't help it. I just love them. I'm in hot debate with myself whether to use it in the sewing room (as you have it pictured) or the kitchen 'cause it would be so nice and durable. Decisions...Decisions. I love, love, love it!

XOXO,
Anna

P.S. Aren't we glad Bloglines burped and recovered from it's bout of indigestion? I logged on the other night and it said I had 1469 unread posts -- I nearly choked on my diet pepsi!

That bloglines thing was driving me freaking crazy. LOL

Wow! That apron is amazing - but I'm disappointed that it wasn't you modelling it! When do we get to see you in person? Using futureDIL's for photo shoots is not allowed - she's too slim and gorgeous and I'm feeling old and frumpy and very jealous!!!! Isn't it exciting about the Melly and Me giveaway - I very rarely win things and I've been really lucky three times lately with a pincushion from Yummers (it arrived today and it is beautiful!), embroidered buttons from Est at "my cuppa charms" and now the pattern from Melly and Me - I think I will ask for Mrs Perkins - what do you think??

I was just reading your other comments before I wrote mine and saw that Lucy got her pincushion from me. I'm always glad to know when something arrives where it's going as I have a gift to a gal in Scotland that's been in la-la land for the last month.

Your apron is darling... really cute. Lucky lady! I thought that was YOU modeling it. Oh, to be that age again... that size again.

Enjoy your apron!
Joni (Yummers!)

Lucky you... that apron is wonderful!

Biscuitbear said...

Lucky you! Now you can't say anymore thay you never win. I think you should wear it both in the kitchen and in the sewing room!

Isabelle said...

Yes, glad I wasn't alone in thinking how discouragingly slim you were. You probably are as well, but leave us in our ignorance, will you?

Lovely - I'd call it a pinafore, myself. Aprons are from the waist only in Scotland... or maybe this is just my family?

That apron is beautiful - I love the birds. I'd be scared to wear it in the kitchen for fear of getting it dirty, I might have to hang it somewhere and just look at it!

Gorgeous apron, and the FDIL, too. Ha ha--those shoes are so cute. I have to get busy--I plan to make aprons--have pattern and fabric. I love the reverse thing.

Lucky, lucky - the apron is darling.
I posted the granola recipe for you today. Let me know if anything seems crazy - I wrote/tested it this morning and before my coffee.
