Frosted Flurries Apron Swap - Part 3

Hey - Check out the super glamorous Apron I received from Jen in the Frosted Flurries Apron Swap!  I love the way she has incorporated the snowflake into the design - really clever!  She also included some exceptionally thoughtful gifts for me using her word of choice - TINSEL.  She discovered that I am on a creative journey and sent me all sorts of goodies to get me inspired and motivated - like a bunch of beads and trinkets to make earrings and a really cute snowman making kit!  Jen also sent me some very delicious sounding recipe cards with seasonal treats well loved by her & her family .....yum....I can't wait to try them out!  Also in my parcel was the most snuggly scarf I have ever seen and some cookie cutters and a book to keep photos in as a record of my creative adventures!

THANK YOU so very much Jen.....such an amazing thoughtful package - I feel totally spoilt!  Love x

Frosted Flurries Apron Swap - Part 2

This is the apron I made for Shawnee's Frosted Flurries Apron Swap.  My partner (from the USA) wanted something that she could wear throughout the winner season and not just Christmas time - so I found this really pretty Poinsettia fabric.  I love the colour - so deep and warm, perfect for brightening a dreary winters day.

We had to include a snowflake somewhere on the apron itself ......this was a little tricky - but *light bulb* I thought of tying on a snowflake cookie cutter that she could use to make cookies while wearing her new apron.....heee heee!

The last image here is of all the tuck-ins I included in my parcel.  The word I chose to base mine around was SNOW.....

S - Star Shape bowl
N - Noel embroidered tea towel
O - Ornaments (snowflake shapes)
W - "White Christmas" cd

I also included some cute snowflake cupcake cases and some more cookie cutters.....yay!  Hope she likes it..........

I  LOVE Christmas! - not long to go now....
