My apron arrived in the post today, all the way from Colorado, USA. You may remember I mentioned that my apron buddy, Danielle, and I had agreed we would choose apron's reflecting where we came from, given the distance.
Here is the apron she chose for me,
The photos were once again taken by my little cameraman Calum (8).
Once he had taken this one he said we had to get a close up of the middle,
Then he looked at the apron and said, 'Why does it only have one big star and not lots of little white ones?'
Hmmmm, back to my American friends to answer that one!
The apron is a charity one, to support US military veterans.
Thank you so much Danielle! My husband's great loves (after me of course) are UK politics and military history, followed very closely by US politics and military history, so I know he'll love it too.
I've already tested it out and there is a little splodge of tonight's chilli on it!
I can also now show everyone the apron I chose to send to Danielle.
A nice patriotic Scottish Saltire.
Thanks again to Pam at Where your treasure is for organising the swap.
