Package #2 Arrived!!

So here are both the packages together. Talk about perfect timing, the mailman came just as we were finishing packing up the trailer to go to Manti. We had decided to take the trailer and stay overnight so we wouldn't have to get up so early Tuesday morning to be at the temple. So I ran in the house and snapped this picture and threw them in the truck to open them on the way. My partner was Kelly Wilsey from Elizabeth, CO any of you know her or been there? I don't, but she put together a cute package! Let's go to HAWAII!! just what I thought, and
I couldn't believe how well the apron matched our trailer, which by the way is decorated all in the tropical flare. So that night I had Stuart take pictures of me in my apron and the loot that was in the package. She had included, the apron of course which just fit, it's a flirty apron that wraps around and ties in front, the fabric is tradional palm leaves on a moss green and gold background, it has black pockets, the neck strap is knotted in the back. She also made a matching oven mitt, can you see it in the background?(that's what she had forgotten to put in the 1st package) Also in the package was a lei and a shell bracelet and a recipe for Pineapple Upside Down Cake, it sounds really yummy. She did an awesome job, now I need to send her my thank you. I think this apron and oven mitt will defineately stay in the trailer so I can enjoy them out there. They look like they were sewn up just for the trailer! That was a fun experience and I'll probably to it again. And just so you have a heads up, I'm participating in a sewing organizing swap right now, I'm making a tote bag for my partner, I'll let you in on the details when I'm finished and ready to mail her package. These are fun and addicting. I seem to have caught the swap fever!! Do I need help? Wow! what a model, should I be in Vogue, a McCalls pattern book or a trailer salesman!!!

That apron matches your trailer so well. That is crazy.
