It's A Better Late Than Never Giveaway!

A few weeks ago I realized I had let my 1 year blogiversary go by without a celebration of any kind. Well, I knew I had to do something, but what?? Then it hit me! This time last year I was the lucky girl who won Barb's, over at http://gritsglamour.blogspot.com/, wonderful giveaway. Remembering how excited I was to receive that package in the mail, I decided to have a little giveaway of my own. I have recently decided that I really missed sewing and that I wanted to start making Aprons, why aprons you ask? Well, a couple of reasons......
1. I love to wear aprons
2. Aprons are hard to find in stores
3. My daughter is in college to become a pastry chef, and I figured she would need a few.
So I ran to JoAnn Fabrics and picked up a simple pattern and some great fabrics, and started sewing.
The first apron I made I gave to my favorite pastry chef, Nikki.

But the second Apron I made is for one of YOU, my favorite blog buddies!

Here's a close up view of the fabric

And of the little fabric flower I pinned on.

Since it is getting close to Valentines Day, I thought making an apron with pinks would be fun. Of course, I will be adding more Valentine goodies to this giveaway, but I wanted to get this posted right away. I am such a procrastinator that I was afraid to wait another day to start my contest, because I am going out of town for work on Friday, and I wanted to be able to get this package in the mail before I leave .
So if you'd like to enter my little giveaway for a chance to win some valentine treats, please send me a comment, and if you'd like to be entered more than once, you can also post something on your blog about it, but dont forget to let me know you've done this.
Now get busy and leave me a comment, my Giveaway will be ending at Noon, est, on Thursday January 28.
I have really enjoyed my first year of blogging and meeting so many new friends. Thanks to all of you who leave me comments and emails, reading each one puts a smile on my face! I look forward to another fun year of getting to know each of you just a little bit better.
Thanks for stopping by, and dont forget to enter!
