an apron for me :)

Last week I caught up with my lovely, fellow crafty friend Jo from bubala... we had such a great time chatting about all things crafty while watching our little boys play together.. so much fun!

A while ago, I lent Jo a screen printing screen and squeegee, so she could have a go and experiment to see if she would like screen printing which she totally did and loves now... not surprising as it is really addictive! It's so wonderful to have someone to gibber gabber to about screen printing! Love it! Anyway, to my surprise, she made me a gorgeous apron as a thank you! How lucky am I :)

It is so beautifully made and also has some of her gorgeous screen printed beetroot design on it too!

I just love it! I haven't used it yet, I am enjoying looking at it on the back of the chair in the kitchen... but only because I don't want to mess it up... just yet! Don't worry Jo, I will use it! :)

There is more about her beetroot design here... and she has loads of great recipes too!

Hope you are all having a great week so far! xxx
