Ready to fly away

I am ready and waiting to fly away to Birdsong 3 tomorrow!  Well, actually we're driving, but you know what I mean.
My swaps and other preparations have been finished for a while now, so yesterday I played with something else for the event: an apron.
I bought this vintage aqua blue apron several months ago, even though it had seen better days; I loved the color and the way the cotton had been worn to softness.  I also loved the unusual shape.
I replaced the apron strings with tulle, and foufed it up a bit.  I sewed this piece of antique netted lace over that sweet piece of bird embroidery shown in the first photo -- a baby bib.
Just a couple more sleeps and I'll be sitting in Karla's studio, hanging out with her, and Beth...
and enjoying the creative surroundings with many friends!
As an extra added bonus, all the gals who worked on the Breakfast at Tiffany's fabric book will be at Karla's for this event!  It will be a mini Tiffany reunion; actually, some of us have never met each other so it is even more exciting!  I can't wait to visit and create with all of them, in person!
I've scheduled some posts to appear while I'm away at Karla's, so please keep stopping by.  I'll be showing you some of the swaps I put together, and other goodies.
We get back late Sunday night, at which point I will have more news.  Here's a hint:
That's right: I will jump right into starting A NEW JOB on Monday morning! I am excited.
