Actually, I meant to say, keeping us clean. Rhonda - Quilting in the Gap - has taken it upon herself to send the girls and I a gorgeous package in the post. Happily it arrived on Tuesday and Emily got to open it at a low point in her day so the package did double duty in cheering things up here. Thank you so much, Rhonda, for the amazing sewing you do and your ability to make us smile.
Rhonda knows how much we love food, and food preparation, in our house so she undertook to make us each an apron. And each was tailored to exactly our tastes.
Emily got dark, rich colours, and a touch of glitter. Perfect.
Helen got the sweetest owls, and a touch of bright colour. I am impressed that Rhonda brought herself to be parted with owl fabric.
I got something more elaborate. First off, a full apron as Rhonda is somehow aware I am messier than the girls, and she knows my upper half has more than a bit that might happen to get in the way. Though I am loath to use something so pretty, and made so well, for fear of getting grease on it.
I took photos of all the pieces of fabric she appliquéd on the apron. Some of them are so perfectly apt, though I do wonder where Rhonda got the idea that I like chocolate!
My particular favourite saying there is the 'Forget Love, I'd rather fall in chocolate.' I don't know about you but I can just visualise it. What a tantalising thought. A luscious vat of warm, dark, melted chocolate to fall into. Mmmmmmmm!
