I don't know if all my dear friends are aware, but I occasionally sew in addition to my other crafty and cooking pursuits. A couple of months ago I started a swap on my blog where strangers all signed up and agreed to make an apron for a complete stranger and receive one in return. It was a huge hit! Just over 55 women crafted flirty-guaranteed-to-make-you-smile aprons for strangers and received little packages of love in return.
So, do you sew at all? Are you enchanted, like I am, by the cute aprons, patterns and fabric available? If so, please join me!! I have a contest all ready to go, too, so at least do that even if you don't want to commit to sending a package. Here's the message I sent to the participants of my first swap. Follow the links and join me!! You'll make some new friends along with way, I know. Crafting is such a fun release for me!
OH YEAH -- I forgot to mention that Monday the 12th (yes this Monday) is National Wear Your Apron Day. If you decide to wear your apron in public (it would be easier if you had joined my first swap but...), email me a picture of you in your apron and I'll post it on the swap blog!!
I had so much fun, I'm ready to start round two! The contests are back! The fun in-progress photos are back! The flirty aprons are back!!
