I have been checking my mailbox for over a week ever since my sister Lucy told me my apron was on it's way. Well today was the day. I have bee waiting for spring to come. I am sooooo!!! tired of the cold. I know that Oklahoma doesn't get as cold as you in the northern states but I have been to cold this winter. This lovely little apron will be just the trick. I love the pink flowers. The pocket will be just right for carrying my i-pod around in while I listen to Jane Austen or Thomas Hardy from LibriVox. Right now I am listening to Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell. (I think I have a new favorite author.)
Here is the reverse side of the apron. The pocket had cute little Lambs on it.
The recipie is for leeek and potato soup. I can't wait to try it. That should help me get over this cold feeling.
Cara sent this lovely postcard of Woodford Halse, in Northhamptonshire. England. I love it. I would like to visit England one day. I have a rich family heritage from the Great Britton.
Also as you can see she also sent me some chocolate. I have always loved Cadbury eggs at Easter and am excited to try this candy.
Thanks so much. This is what makes swapping so much fun.
