I also mentioned a couple of posts ago about the Skinny Pinny Swap and I received my Skinny Pinny this week too! I just love that fabric and how Nancy, (hi!) tied it off at the end, the buttons and rick rack!
And I also got a surprise Log Cabin pinny from Amy! Which is the cutest and so thoughtful of her!
