HOWEVER...such is not the case with my fabulous package from Paula B. from Newnan, GA. Here...see for yourself:
BEHOLD the lovliness of my new "June Cleaver" Apron!!
No, your eyes are not deceiving you. That really is Battenberg lace and pearls you see! PEARLS!! Pearls and lace for my new apron! Isn't it lovely?
Look at the details on the pockets
I put it on immediately and started to make some dinner, and then it hit me....What the heck am I doing? This apron is not going to get stained and messy! I'm keeping this one for special occasions. (I never saw June Cleaver with any stains on her apron!)
To top it all off she made a cute little appliqued fabric gift bag full of goodies: candy, cookies, hankie, and some charms and buttons.
When I e-mailed Paula to let her know how much I loved everything, she mentioned that she was new at sewing and this was only her 3rd apron. She has been teaching herself to sew! ARE YOU KIDDING ME! Well, I immediately examined the apron closely (sorry Paula, I couldn't help myself...) and I DON'T THINK I BELIEVE HER!! I'm telling you Paula, your workmanship is lovely and some of it is better than mine, and I've been sewing for 35 years!
Keep up the good work Paula and I know I'll be running into you again around Apron-Swap-Blogland-Apronista-site world....
