Weekend over

Well, the weekend is over and I have done no sewing. I did a little paper crafting for Halloween but other than that it was an uncrafty weekend. I did do a lot of cleaning and laundry so not all was wasted.
I am taking a vacation day tomorrow since there is no school and I plan on doing a lot of sewing - we'll see.

I WON! I WON! And I never, I mean NEVER win anything. The Sassy Apron Swap had an early bird drawing and I won Pillow Case Pinny pattern - I am so excited and can't wait to make one.

Fall Apron swap pics

Sorry, I have been away and not posting. We have been so busy with DD going back to school etc. And last weekend we headed up to Ghost Town - more about that here:

I know these are long overdue but here are a few pics from the swaps. First of all, there was the Fall Apron Swap at Sassy Apron Swap ( I made this apron that DD was so kind to model for me:

the back:

and I love this pic:

For Booming Aprons ( halloween swap, I received this wonderful package:

Fair etc 091808046

with all of this:

Fair etc 091808047

and this apron:

Fair etc 091808048

and the reverse of the apron:

Fair etc 091808050

Sorry those last couple of pics didn't turn out so good - I didn't have my model.

And the pics that I took of what I made got "lost" when a memory card went bad. Pictures of a trip that DD took with her Grandmother were also lost (which made for a very, very sad day at our house). But you can see pics here at my swap partners blog :

Thanks for looking and I am so sorry it took so long.
