The Sisterhood of the Traveling Susan Apron

Have you heard of the Traveling Susan Apron?
It started back in March 2012.  A wonderful lady named Susan who blogs at
My Mother's Apron Strings creates an apron each month and gives it away!  The winner of the March apron was Meggie and this is what she wrote about the 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......

Meggie Mac

Yes this apron has traveled to several bloggers
Meggie at Meggie On The Prarie in Texas
Elaine at Pear Tree Log in England
Scarlet at Tales From Beyond The Nook in England
Jane at The Maple Syrup Mob in Ontario, Canada
Deb at Just Cats in Ontario, Canada
and Susan at Just Sayin' in Ontario, Canada

Guess where it is now?
Here at A La Carte!
The apron arrived with this wonderful note and sweet gifts and of course
The Apron!

I am truly blessed to have been chosen to join the sisterhood and will do my best to get inspiration from this very special apron!   Just think this apron was born in Redmond, Washington and has traveled to Texas, England, Canada and now is back in the USA in Georgia! 
I know it has stories to tell me and I will share them with you in upcoming posts! 
This is a favorite thing for sure! 

I'm joining 
and a new party starting Saturday Sept 1st
A Favorite Thing with Claudia at
Mockingbird Hill Cottage
Please drop by and join in the fun!

Jill said...

What a neat idea and k owing that is has actually travelled across the big pond and now back again!!

AshTreeCottage said...

I think this is a perfectly charming idea! Just think, that apron will be sent with love, be handled with love and then sent off with love. The perfect way to glorify sisterhood. I so enjoyed this post!

Deb said...

"Hey Sister". Hope you have a magical time in the kitchen with that apron.
Hugs, Deb

Susan said...

I'm gushing knowing I have a new "Sister". My mother inspired me, not only in baking, but in being the most sharing, generous woman I've known; she gave me a set of "apron strings," cut from one of her favorites, when I got married. It may be a symbol of letting go, but for me, it's a way to hold on to her (she passed away at age 67). Through the aprons I make and give away honors her also has blessed me with new friends. Happy Baking Linda, XOXO

O, I love it.
I just sent LUCY RABBIT off after a stay here in Texas. She started off in England, I think. It was such fun.
Now, a traveling apron. How fun is that.
I'm pretty sure this apron will be the reason for some extra special foods coming from your kitchen.
