Crafty Cooks Apron Swap

April 29, 2013

This week I was delighted to receive a fabulous parcel through the post, as my part in the Crafty Cooks and Apron swap I signed up to:)




Full of lots of goodies, including chocolates made as sewing threads.. never seen these before! I will be planting the aubergine seeds today, and am planning on trying my hand to making cheese straws.. I’m promised they are easy to make.. hope so! Really chuffed that the Apron has recycled fabric in it too:)

Why not check out my partners blog?

Tanya is in the process of making a gorgeous quilt as you go weekend bag… way beyond me. I wouldn’t have a clue where to start!

Apron Swap


Here’s the apron I made for the swap.

Thanks to Threading My Way for sharing how she made her Apron for the swap.. I have to admit my apron was influenced by her blog re how she made her apron!! Please do check out her website for lots of great free tutorials:)

As usual please do pop over to Handmade Harbour to see what other people have been making this week:)

    Vicky, I have got my apron and it is really lovely. It came at the end of last week but I have had serious family issues and it wiped out the whole of last week. I’m really sorry for not saying thanks before the weekend, it’s been a very bad few days for us so I hope you’ll forgive me. I really do love the apron and will be trying out the recipes when my youngest son comes home for the weekend on Friday. Thanks again.

    • Really hope everything has settled down for the better family wise:) Glad it arrived safe and sound.. sorry I didn’t get chance to write out recipes nicely etc… Really pleased I was given a partner whose mood board of aprons I loved:) Vicky
