Post your aprons here for all to admire!  Of course, we would love action shots!  Please do not post any other items here except aprons!

This is the place to brag about any details or special techniques, discuss any tips, lessons learned, etc. And, of course, BRAG!!!

Do you know how many aprons from the last swap I have seen on people's wists or favorite projects?--LOTS!!!

What a great idea RM--I think this swap is a winner because it is so low pressure and fun and easy!!

And, anyone who wears a apron surely is a nice person...ha ha

I just jumped in the discussion thread and stepped up to the plate to organize.  It already had a good following, but wasn't moving due to the lack of a willing organizer.  I do take credit for the fact that it is only ONE APRON.  That way it doesn't get overwhelming.  It is hard to stop at one apron when you really feel the love for your partner, I know...but then you could always send them a little something after the swap is over...or have a personal swap with them if they wish. 

Thanks for organizing this round, AIMR!!!

I got my apron from Kaiser Scissorhands  yesterday and I love it.  It has little welt pocks for my hands and to collect little toys from around the house if I wear it while cleaning. I had to charge the camera before I could take pictures this more morning.  I love the flower applique, I love flowers.

The colors are a bit washed out in the action shot as I had to use a flash in the kitchen.





These are a bit more accurate to color.







Thank you, I really like it.

Our first post!!!  What a nice springy apron! I love those colors and the flowers are a nice extra touch--I have not done much machine applique--I always forget how nice it adds to a functional item!!

Wonderful job kaiserscssorhands! I am jealous that you got to post first sammimag!
