I can truly say CJ is a friend, because Aunt Pitty Pat and I got to spend time with her and her hubby, Ken, when I visited APP in Kansas last fall. She was such a gracious hostess-with-the-mostess, and Ken even took us all down to the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building to view the Outdoor Symbolic Memorial - both breathtaking and solemn, especially at night.
But, back to the aprons! For Country Pleasurer's Valentine Apron Swap, CJ sent me this most fabulous apron package! Here's the VERY cute apron - I just love it! It even has heart-shaped pockets!
But if that cute apron wasn't enough, CJ sent me.....
Three of her most sought-after pincushions! I have been lusting after these pincushions since visiting APP and getting to use the ones that CJ sent her! And now I have THREE of my very own! They are soooo cute and soooo wonderful to use! I love love love them, CJ! And I have already loaded them up with pins! Thank you, Thank you!
But that's not all....here's the cutest ever little needle book. She says she made up the pattern herself - I love the little triangle flap on the left side and look - she machine-emroidered the felt pad with little hearts - such a sweet touch :-)
Here's the front:
But wait! That STILL wasn't all! She also sent me another beautiful Mug Rug! Probably because I've told her that I am using the one she sent me for Christmas as a candle mat, year-round, in my kitchen ;-) Ain't it pertty?
Thank you, CJ! You spoiled me but I'm so glad you did!
