The Sweet Hearts Collection

Mission accomplished!!

I got all six aprons finished by 11:00p.m. Sunday night....

Five for the ETSY shop (I'll be posting them on Wednesday)
















and one for my partner in the Sugar & Spice Apron Swap. As soon as I finish a couple of other little projects to complete her package, I'll be mailing this one off to New York, along with some avocados.





Some of these have my new adjustable criss-cross straps that I "borrowed" from Lucy over at My Byrd House....Thanks for the idea Lucy!! This apron style is sooo comfortable....no neck strap, which can be bothersome. It also makes the apron more flattering to a fuller figure (trust me, I know...)






It sure feels great completing a goal you set for yourself, even something as small as completing 6 aprons in a weekend.


Starting with the small goals and working up to the bigger ones......that works for me!!

Nicki,
The aprons are adorable.
I want to thank you too, for stopping by my blog earlier. It must be really tough having TWO chefs in the family!
