Hooray for swaps! I signed up for this apron swap a while back, and this weekend we all received our goodies. We were to research our partners a little and design an apron for them. Also included in the swap were three recipe cards with a few of our favorite dishes.
Cate drew my name, and designed this fabulous apron for me. Look at the buttons! The scalloped bottom! The beautiful colors! And what’s even better? It’s reversible.
Isn’t that pretty? I almost don’t want to wear it to work for fear that I’ll get it dirty. Is that weird?
She also included some yummy-sounding recipes for a salad, chicken pot pie, and chocolate cookies. And if you look at the top photo, you can see the skein of alpaca yarn she included in the mix. It is so soft…I’m scheming up something wonderful to knit or crochet with it. Thanks so much, Cate…I love it all!
I drew Sarah (I was a little intimidated since she was the swap organizer…yikes!), who, I found out, has a yellow, turquoise, and blue kitchen. I made her this apron so she could flit about her kitchen and match her surroundings…
I decided to go with a Mexican theme (don’t those colors remind you of Mexico?), so I made these recipe cards for Agua de Sandia, Migas, and Pumpkin Empanadas:
I sent it to her with a few treats…Mexican peanut candies, some flavored salt to sprinkle on fresh cut fruit, a candy bracelet, and a cd of my favorite cooking tunes.
I don’t know what’s more fun…creating a swap package or receiving mine in the mail. (I don’t know, I really do love mail…)
