Apron and book giveaway (guess who made the freaking cute apron)

So we are hosting our first FREE giveaway on the SSC (Secret Stitch Club) site, which I am a proud member of. The author of the book featured below gave us a free copy to give away... (she's kind of a celeb in the apron blogosphere subculture). Anyway, what I'm more excited about is the stink'n cute apron I made to giveaway with the book. This is our first combined project and launching point for Christie, Jill & I, (we will hopefully be opening an Etsy site next month to sell these suckers for actual money)
Okay so one reason I love this apron is that it is green. Let me hug a tree for a minute and tell you how cool this apron is. The book is about vintage kitchen linens, and this apron is made from repurposed household linens. The main white section came from a laundry room curtain, it has the sweetest white on white flowers along the bottom.

The red gingham ties and bottom ruffle are a repurposed bed sheet. How cool is that? This apron has a generous fit (I hate aprons that only cover half of my loverly plump thighs) - rest assured that this one will fit you.

This is the book. I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but it is hot off the presses and will probably teach you everything you need to know about kitchen linens and then some. SO... to enter just go to our SSC blog and leave a comment. You can say almost anything you'd like. Also if you blog about our give away you can enter a second time. Nothings better then upping the odds right?
