What you create Blog Party!

Hi, Friends! I'm a bit slow getting my post up today, but I don't want to be left out, so I'm scrambling here!
I'm joining in today on Andrea's What you Create Blog Party!
I LOVE to sew and just don't have as much time for it as I used to, plus I love swaps! I thought I'd share an oldie today with you that I made in my very first swap back in 2008 when I first started blogging...
It was a Wizard of Oz swap and I made this for my partner...
My first full length apron ever!
It was a tremendous amount of work, but I was so pleased with how it turned out!
I stitched "Close your eyes and tap your heels together three times and think to yourself, there's no place like home" on the apron ties!
I then wanted to complete the Dorothy ensemble in how I packaged it up...

Swaps are so much fun on both sides, the creating in our craft rooms
and the receiving of a box full of goodies on the other!
I hope to visit you in your craft room as we spread the creations in this blog party!


  1. And I was your lucky swap partner!!

  2. Looks like you are ready for whatever comes your way -- even a picnic :-)

  3. Hi Suzie!

    Awesome apron and what a clever way to send it!! I am always in awe of how creative people are with their swaps and I so admire people who can sew . . . if it's a straight stitch, I'm okay, LOL, anything beyond that, forget it!!

    Thank you for stopping by!

    Have a wonderful weekend!


  4. Ooooooh how cute is that apron, sweetpea!!! I don't think I've ever been here before, sugar, but you have a darling blog...

  5. That is a.dor.ab.le Suzie!

  6. Cute apron...and what a creative idea putting it in a basket! Lucky swap partner!

  7. I love the apron. I am late getting mine up too. I just did at 11:30 this morning. I was thinking it is tomorrow. *sigh :) I hope you can stop over and see what I create too. Again, the apron is sweet and so is the basket.

  8. Suzie,

    What an adorable apron! I would have been so happy to receive that!

    We were up late, too. Hope you will have a chance to stop over.

  9. Ohhhhh! I love this so much! I don't think I'd ever wear this as it's so special but it is fabulous!!!

    My friend Robin makes aprons and I will definitely be telling her to come peek at yours. : )
