Spicing Up the Kitchen Swap Received!

I received a beautiful package from my Spicing Up the Kitchen Swap partner, Amy, last week. (Amy blogs over at amylouwho). I've just started to follow her blog...check out her gorgeous bird quilt. It's lovely! Anyway, Amy made me a gorgeous Dresden Plate table topper to go with my retro red kitchen table.

I love, love, love dresden plates. Especially ones with red polka dots.

I love the way it looks on the table.

I have my dad's old chrome kitchen table - the table topper is perfect!

Amy also made a diaper pouch and some burp cloths for our new baby. I'm thrilled to have some new baby items. With this being baby #3, the poor little babe is going to have to get used to hand-me-downs.

Thanks Amy for the thoughtful baby items!

The backing fabric is perfect too.

Even the back looks amazing. My daughter loves the apples and pears.

Thank you so much, Amy. I love them! And thanks to Darci and Erin for organizing a wonderful swap. I love the kitchen theme and the short turn-around time for making and sending items. I'm definitely up for Round 2!

I really am so happy that it looks so good on your table! And that you love dresdens!

Did I tell you that this was actually going to be an apron? And then I remembered how I feel when I'm pregnant, and post pregnant, and that I never want anything tied around my waist. Thus was born the table topper! :)
