A Tale of Two Aprons

We had a wonderful weekend celebrating our oldest daughter's 26th birthday.  We had a tasty Italian dinner, followed by a rousing game of Cranium

Then, of course, there was the singing and the candle-blowing, before diving into a peanut butter cheesecake.

And, finally, the gift opening.  I have mentioned secretly in some of my previous posts that I was making an apron for a special "friend" that is beginning to enjoy cooking.

Well, that "friend" is my daughter!  I was so sure she would love the apron design and the colors.  Last week I started cutting out several aprons to sew and place in my shop.  I liked the fabrics on one particular one the best so I decided to sew it up right away.  Once I finished, I placed it on my "model" to admire for a few days.

My daughter told me she "admired" it too!
So, back to the birthday party, she opens her present - the apron.
She doesn't really like it that much....says she likes the one on my model much better....can we trade?
Why not!?  I want her to use it and if she doesn't like it, she won't use it!  Simple as that!  It didn't take her long to don it and ask me to take a picture!

She's happy so I'm happy!

Speaking of happy....Happy Birthday, dear daughter!  I love you!!!
