Chicken Lovin' Apron Swap!

I'm such a lucky chick :-) Here's the apron package I got from Madelyn in Yarni Gras' Hot Mama Chicken Lovin' Apron Swap! Madelyn spoiled me by letting ME pick out the fabric - is that cool or what! I picked the blue chickens fabric and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Here's the apron - it's full sized, has roomy pockets, and is reversible, too!

She made a fabulously useful oven mitt to match...and included a wooden spaghetti fork, pretty nail file, and BEADS!!! I LOVE BEADS!!! And the BEADS!!! are BLUE!!!
Ok...I think I've calmed down now from my BEADS!!! euphoria ;-)  Madelyn also embroidered these fine chickens on some dishtowels! Too pretty to use? Probably...but I'm going to try to make myself use them anyways. She also included a chicken cookbook and some very yummy mints. When I saw the mints, I thought "Hmmm...mints..." but when I put the first one in my mouth, I thought "WOW...mints!" because they are sweet little pillows of heaven that melt in my mouth! Ummm, I don't have a picture, because, ummm, well, they are all gone! Thank you, Madelyn, for a wonderful swap package! The apron and mitt are hanging on my fridge right now, and maybe I'll convince myself to use the towels real soon ;-)
