Summer sassy apron - complete

It seems almost silly that I started making my apron for the Summer Sassy Apron Swap on Saturday, the coldest day Melbourne has had in 34 years. It was bucketing with rain so what better to do than sew an apron! Kitty pointed me in the right direction and I was finally inspired by this for my apron. I have to admit though, this is the most amount of pink I've ever used in anything I have ever made (and there isn't even that much pink on the apron!). Pink fabric, pink ric rac, pink buttons...! Nice and simple and summery. I hope my partner enjoys it!

I've finally completed it and it's off to America tomorrow morning (I doubt I'll make it to the post office by 5pm today!). I made matching a dishcloth out of the gingham-style fabric to go with it.

I've also decided to post my accompanying summery non-alcoholic drink recipe here, just because I think it's a really delicious drink and should be shared with everyone, not just my swap partner!

Cardinal Punch
60 ml cranberry juice
60 ml ginger ale
15 ml lemon juice
30 ml orange juice
lemon and orange slices for garnish

Half fill a glass with ice and add the fruit juices. Add the ginger ale and garnish with lemon and orange. YUM!

Hi! I just wanted to let you know that I received my apron today! I love it! I will have pictures up on my blog in the next day or two. I will really match my kitchen now as I just repainted it yellow this past year.
