What better way to start your Friday than with a visit from the postman carrying a squishy , such was the case for me today . Some time ago I signed up for an apron swap on the Down to Earth blog and my partner was Sue of Fairytales and Goblins blog , today the apron she made for me arrived along with a postcard of her area and a recipe for a date cake that I will have to try out . Thanks so much Sue I appreciate the sweet apron in a lovely bright red .
Thread Head with her little mini and this morning I sewed on the borders and then added the applique using her method and it had been a while since I have done machine applique this way so wasn't sure how that was going to go but it actually worked well . I think my fabrics could have been better chosen but I still love it and really enjoyed making each and every part . Thanks so much Joanne , now to get it machine quilted , Joanne has given us some wonderful ideas of ways to accomplish that so I will give that a try as well , probably not today though.
Here he is touring Windsor Castle a couple of days ago .
Thanks for stopping by today and have the best day ever .
