A Cheery Apron

In Swap on July 15, 2008 at 3:03 pm

Within Ravelry, I am in a group called Sew Obsessed. Obviously, it’s for knitters/crocheters who love to sew in their spare time. Recently, there was a call for an apron swap. I have still not had a chance to make myself another apron, so I thought this would be the perfect motivation to not only make myself a new apron but to also make an apron for someone else. I could share the love, so to speak. Though I have not even started to make an apron for either, I received an apron from my swap partner yesterday.

It’s so bright and cheery. When I pulled it out of the package, I smiled.

Though I only expected the apron, my swap partner Betty included many goodies from the kitchen friendly to the taste-bud friendly:

A card
A card set
4 dishcloths
2 cutting boards
Candy fruit slices
Dark Chocolate with orange flavoring
Orange scented candle

Thank you so much, Betty!

Faithful readers, I know I promised alpaca fleece, more Sammy and a custom knitting bag, but household chores are calling me. I have ignored them too long. Plus, I would like to eat homemade food tonight. I’m thinking potato soup. I have some pork stock that should provide a great building block. I will try and post again tomorrow with the fleece pictures.

Until then, here’s a sneak peak of how the woven pillow is turning out.

  1. Marie, that is the most CHEERFUL swap package I’ve ever seen! You can’t help but smile just looking at the colors and all that fun. And I love the shot of your pillow cover and can’t wait to see it all finished. :)

  2. Totally cute apron! Awesome Swap.

    Your woven pillow is amazing. Can’t wait to see more pics and hear all about it :)

  3. Ok I LOVE that pillow. Can’t wait to see the details. I’d like to try it!

  4. Marie,
    I’m in the Sew Obsessed Ravelry group, but managed to miss the apron swap. What a cool package you got! I love the candy fruit slices. They were the first thing my eyes were drawn to. I thought they were little soaps. The texture of your woven pillow is so interesting to look at – how the knitted strips flow over and under each other.

  5. Wow! What a colorful swap package and apron! Reminds me of the 50’s designs – such pretty fabrics! I look forward to seeing your designs!

    The woven pillow is beautiful. You know, the first time I saw entrelac, I thought that’s how it was done! :) This looks so pretty and soft!

  6. What a nice apron and package! That pillow is looking amazing! I really like how that turns out when you get the weaving part done – where’s the pattern from?

  7. I’ve seen a number of aprons shown on blogs recently but you’re right, this one is very cheerful. I think I like it better than all the others. Your swap partner also color coordinated everything so well. What a nice package.

  8. The apron is so sweet, I really like the sunny mix of colors, pillow looks very nice!! Can’t wait to see it done.
