A lovely Surprise



Debbie who is a member of our monthly cottage swap sent her fabulous cottage along with a great and useful gift.
I like how all the members of our swap have kept their end of the deal and have made wonderful cottages. Debbie made her sky look like snow and all the other cottages also have unique sky's.
Well we only have 4 more cottages to go and we can put our blocks together.
Debbie also gifted me a lovely apron. I remember commenting when she made them earlier in the year and I am really happy that I have received one. The waist has a nice wide band which camouflage's my bodily imperfections.
I needed a Christmas apron since I only have a summer and thanksgiving one.
So, the apron will be put to use real soon.

What a nice apron! How nice of her to do that....BUT...you have been a good "swap mama", so you are very deserving of a nice giftie like that!

I love aprons. I agree that they can hide certain things. I even wore one to an appointment at church yesterday with my slippers on. It was just a quick check in but still I refused because I was in the middle of things. I might have looked odd though. Oh well.
