Sweetly Spooky.....

Jill from Nature Girl was my booming aprons swap partner. I got so lucky, she sent me the BEST Halloween package!

She couldn't decide which way to she sent me TWO aprons! One with a creepy little spider and one with a spider that is holding a trick or treat pumpkin. I really love them both and can't pick a favorite! The appliqued one is dressier because of the satin so I think I'll wear it Halloween day while I deliver cupcakes to my kid's classes!

Here is a close up of the spider....she did a GREAT job! If you look closely, you can see that she did webbing over the entire apron! It takes a lot of work to get that right.

This is the one with the cute little spider has a set of pockets across the front.

And looked what else!
She sent me some pretty fall fabric for my table, a favorite recipe of theirs, 2 cute Halloween pins and a toadstool (yeah!) needle book! I've never had a needle book before so that is really special...she even put a pocket in it for a small pair of scissors.

BTW, If you click on the photo, you can read the recipe and use it for your family too. It looks really good.

Thank you Jill and Nature Girl.....this was an extra special package and I LOVE IT!

I'm so glad you liked the package! I had fun creating the aprons and the goodies for you! This was a great swap experience so thanks!
By the way everyone try the pumpkin dip recipe, it's so YUMMY! I like it with gingersnaps but you could do graham crackers or Nilla wafers too. Now I'm hungry!

She did a great job! The aprons are fun! I think I might have to make an apron sometime soon, I have seen so many cute ones on your blog!

How sweet is that! I love the spider for sure and I plan to try that dip. I bet it would be delicious with cinnamon graham crackers. Blessings, marlene

Very cute stuff -- you're right, a spider web across the whole apron is a big job! I clicked to enlarge the photo with the recipe, which sounds really yummy. Now I'm ready for Halloween!
