a Sew-Lovely Giveaway Winner!

I bought this little plastic cupid cupcake “twizzle” a day-and-ever-so-ago and have waited since to use it on Valentine’s Day. The cherry on top was a last-minute decision & is impossibly adorable- so much so, I’ve decided it will become a tradition…as will pound cake for Valentine’s Day breakfast. A great start to any day, but with Cupid atop, a perfect start.

A busy day today and only toward late afternoon was I able to corral a Random Human to select the winner of today’s Sew Lovely Giveaway. Courtesy of a most agreeable bank teller, #63

When I was a girl, I used to practice writing my married name: Mrs. Elvis Presley. As things turned out, the time spent might have been put to better use.


Here’s to a Hunk o’ Burnin’ Love Valentine’s Day!


Tie One One…an apron, of course!


  1. Dear EllynAnne

    Wow, what fun! I feel like a winner just having an email from you!

    Thank you – this should be fascinating to try.

    I have a collection of several hundred vintage aprons, most collected from thrift stores in the between 1974 and 1990. I’ve done several “art” shows with them, and once a year or so I do a show and tell at one of the nursing homes in the area.
    I just brought home 18 gingham cross stitched aprons from my collection that I had loaned out to a local nursing home for their ladies to wear for a regional gathering. I love to make use of the aprons and linens I have – thank you for so many inspiring ideas.

  3. Hi EllynAnne, I seen you on the news today. Wow, I just love aprons. I am going to try and get out to see you this weekend. I had no idea there were books about them. I am going to order them. Can’t wait for the newsletter from you. Have a great day, Hugs,Connie
