Sisterhood of the Traveling Susan Apron

Borrowed Photo from Susan's Blog
Susan has just notified me that I am the March winner of one of the beautiful apron's she sews and then gives away each month. If you are looking for wonderful recipes and photos, check out her blog, My Mother's Apron Strings. Attached to her recipes are many heartfelt stories of life and family.

I've decided to keep the wonderful gift for two weeks and write a few words in a journal about what I did in my kitchen while wearing the apron. Then, I will pass the apron and journal on to one of my blogging buddies, hoping she will do the same. Just think, in a year, Susan's apron will have traveled to 24 different kitchens.

Yes, this is a knock-off from the book and movie, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Somehow, I think we will have less trouble fitting into the apron than we would the pants.

Thanks again, Susan! I am honored that you chose me......

  10. Congratulations Meggie, you deserve to win because you're such a lovely person. And what a good idea for the apron to travel around. I saw that film and enjoyed it. Lots of love xxx

  11. Thank you, Emma. I think it will be fun to do this with the apron. Just thinking about it traveling to other kitchens puts a smile on my face.

  12. I need to chime in...as I told Meggie, this is such a wonderful idea and a beautiful tribute to our daughter, Kelly who we lost almost 2 years ago to breast cancer. She urged me to do a blog and I think she knew I would have such comfort and support in reaching out and sharing with this amazing community of bloggers after she was gone. I've always said, "it's the apron that chooses the recipient." I'm overjoyed with this one going out to Meggie...at least for two weeks:-) XOXO

    1. It all started with me winning the apron from the blog, "My Mother's Apron Strings". After I received the apron (Susan gives away an apron each month from her blog), I just decided to pass it on to my friend, Elaine.
