Beauty of a Gathering Apron

Yesterday, while running on the treadmill and watching my favorite daytime soap opera....I was barely into my first mile with the TV blasted as loud as it could go I see the UPS man drive up and leave a package on the fence post. Hmmmm......what could it be? My apron from the Garden Apron Swap? I decided I would finish the first mile before I would go investigate.


Not too long ago I joined The Garden Apron Swap over at Lucy and Shawnee's place. This was a blind swap, so I had no idea who had me. I was delighted to find out that Cookie Girl had me! She made a beautiful gathering apron for me. I love it. She also sent some goodies that included magnets, recipe cards, a bookmark, a jar of home made strawberry jam, and some notecards.


Doesn't all that look awesome? Thank you so much Cookie Girl, I can't wait to harvest some vegetables.



Here is the apron full length.


Now it is all tied up ready to harvest some veggies. I am patiently waiting for some tomatoes, squash, and other goodies to ripen. When they do I will be ready with this lovely apron. Cookie Girl, for a first apron, you did an amazing job! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Don't mind Vapor, she is a little camera shy!

Cool UPS truck! My dad works for UPS and he doesn't get a nifty truck like that one. I will have to tell him about it!

Nice butt (I'm referring to Vapor, but I'm sure you've got a nice one too!)

What a great idea for an apron, you can have it at any length! You look devine!
