Pin Up Girl Apron Swap

I was in Val's Pin up Girl Apron Swap and I got the best package ever! Shawnee, the Queen of Aprons sent me an amazing package. I got the cutest apron, one side is cowgirls and the other side is outdoor girls. My new apron is so perfect and pretty!!

If the apron wasn't enough check out the rest of the goodies Shawnee sent to me. I swear it was like opening a Christmas present. The cowboy boot clutch is the cutest thing! I LOVE it!!Shawnee sent me a really neat piece of fabric with different farmer and cowgirl pictures on it, a star made out of twigs, a horseshoe pin, paper plates, a glass boot filled with Boston Baked Bean candies, and then a couple of cowgirl recipes. Those Boston Baked Beans are one of my favorites from when I was a little girl and my Mallory says they're better than chocolate. Mallory doesn't say that about just anything either!

Here's the reversible apron I made for my partner. I also made her some heart hot pads and a crocheted tawashi and then added a dish towel and some chocolates. I hope she liked everything!

I have a couple of other swaps I need to post. My camera is ill and the lens cover doesn't want to open when I turn it on. I've charged the batteries and banged it a few times, but it still only works when it wants to. I think I'm going to have to ask Santa for a new one for Christmas, but keep it quite, because this camera might get really mad at me and quit working all together.

It's all awesome! I love that glass boot. I haven't done a swap in ages and your box sure reminds me of how much fun it was!
Your apron is the cutest ever. I love that you made the matching potholders for it. I think I'm going to make myself some of those tawashi thingies. I love crocheting dish cloths but the little scrubbers would be fun and fast to make, too.
