Spicing up the Kitchen

I was invited to join in on the first round of the Spicing up the Kitchen swap on Flickr.  It's been fun to watch all the great items people have been making.  There are some fun packages going out in the next couple weeks.  I received my package on Friday from the fabulous Elizabeth from Don't Call Me Betsy.  She was my secret swap partner.  I was so excited to see her name on the package.  She runs our amazing quilting bee and does some great projects.  It's extra fun to receive a great package from someone you know. 

Elizabeth sent me a wonderful table runner that matches my kitchen towels I made a while ago.  She also sent me a reversible apron which I'm so excited to use.  When I saw her pictures on Flickr for the table runner, I secretly hoped they were for me.  I love how cute it turned out.  Now if I can just get the twins to leave the it alone.   Thanks so much Elizabeth!!  I love both items.

(Notice the cord going through the chair backs.  I wasn't kidding when I said we tie our kitchen chairs to the table.)





I'll be sending my package out to my secret partner in just a couple days.  Preview pics tomorrow.

  5. I am cracking up that you tie the chairs to the table. I need to start doing that. We have one of those really tall dining room tables and my 5 year old thinks he needs to drag all 8 of the chairs to our family room every day to make a fort. Where's the rope???
