As promised! I have to first introduce you to a wonderful apronista I met over at etsy.  I LOVE THAT PLACE! Anywho, her name is Joan and she lives – well not to far from me actually over in Texas.  I found her retro inspired aprons and ordered one – maybe 2 years ago. Look, I am not going to lie to you, Joan has the cleanest, closest, prettiest stitches I have EVER seen.  Where I sew, she is a seamstress!  I have since ordered several aprons from her and I also have a book she is featured in call A is for Apron. We have talked several times over the phone about aprons, family, cooking – you name it, we’ve covered it.  So when I found out Simplicity was putting two of her designs out in pattern form,  I was so excited for her and told her when it was out and for sale I wanted to do a giveaway!  The pattern is ADORABLE.  It’s two styles of aprons with Mother/Daughter sizes, plus potholders, sachets and felt Christmas cookie patterns!

Here is your chance to get this pattern, a apron kit (rick rack included!) with Christmas fabric and a “plate of Christmas Cookies” – all the generosity of Joan!  And I thank her so much for providing a great package for some lucky apron loving reader!

Oh, the vintage bread bowl is NOT included.  That was my granny’s.

You know the drill…leave a comment, consider yourself entered to win.  But with a little twist.  Please share your very favorite holiday “kitchen” memory with us. It can be a favorite dish you cook, or decoration you put up…just something related to our “hearts of our homes” ~ our kitchens.  You have until next Friday December 11  to get your comment posted.  I will not put any names that come in after midnight CST on the 11th. On the 12th, Saturday I will draw the winner!   And if you would like to get an extra chance, take this button, post it on your blog and let me know, and I will add your name a second time.  Fun huh?
