Winter Sassy Apron Swap (received)

My Sassy Winter Apron package has arrived all the way from Hickory, NC.!

Patty D. got my name for the swap. (swap details are here).
Look what Patty made for me!!.......
The Snowman print is so cute and it's lined with a pretty snowflake fabric.
It has 2 nice big pockets and I love the wide waistband that makes a really great bow in back.......
Patty grew up in San Diego and knows how rare snow is here, so everything has a snow theme, right down to the tissue she used to wrap the items!
The cookie cutter is a giant snowflake that will make perfect cookies for my annual Christmas sleepover with the grandkids. Patty sent along her Mother's special sugar cookie recipe and a holiday cookie cookbook.
I was trying to find time to make myself a Christmas apron, but didn't think I could squeeze in one more sewing project and now I don't need to!
Patty, I love this whole fun, snowy package and I can't wait to get busy baking! Thank you so much from snow-less Southern've really added to the festivities around my house!!

Hi Nicki,
I am so happy you liked everything. I had to go with the snow theme. It has been so cold here, today it got up to 44*. And that is warmer that it has been. I have learned to knit and have made everyone gloves, scarfs and hats. I have lived here since 1985 and really miss the warm winters of Southern California. It does snow here but not as much as my kids want. So I am really glad you liked your present, you said you didn't want Santa, so Snowmen was my next thought. I can't wait for you to try the cookie recipe, it is great. Enjoy your family and the season!
