One more swap before Christmas..

I couldn't resist... And this time it is for ME! I am taking part in Sassy Apron Swap - Winter 2008 run by Lucy at Sassy Apron Swap. I haven't got a clue what I am going to make for my swap partner (good job I have got until Dec 1 to get it done & dusted) but I am very very excited about having a Christmassy themed apron all to myself! I love to cook (you can see some of our family recipes & foody experiments at our Seasonal Matters blog) Christmas cooking & baking is the highlight of the year for me, so having my own sassy apron to wear is just fantastic. Can you tell I am excited?

Haven't got much done today - got Lisa & Fischer's parcel in the post this am, have done a tiny bit of crochet & listed another lovely furry Xmas stocking on Etsy & as I haven't got a picture of an apron I'll post a picture of that instead! I want to make some bigger stockings - one each for the boys I think & maybe some for the shop too. I have discovered a wonderful new local shop - Abakhan - that is a an absolute treasure trove of fabric, yarn, trims & other bits of pieces. I could have spent hours there & no doubt will be back often, but all I bought was some ric rac & fake fur for the stockings. I have a hankering to make a Christmas stocking out of some tweedy fabric with a fake fur trim... I think it would be pleasingly 1930s...

You've accomplished ten times more than me! I have about 15 projects started but I haven't gotten much done lately. The stocking is so cute. I can't wait to see what else you create.
Thanks for letting me know that you sent out your book swap package. It will be fun to see what you created.

I am loving all of your pictures of your darling wares! I'm hoping to get your pkg in the mail this afternoon. We're just waiting on something. Fischer is really excited! We keep having to discuss the route from your house to ours and visa versa. He is very interested in the way that your mailman and our mailman make this happen.
