San-Dee is an Apron Goddess

Happy 4th to San-Dee
and the rest of you apron lovers!
San-Dee is an apron lover. She loves to sew aprons, join swaps, and alter pre-existing patterns.
Isn't this apron beautiful?

San-Dee says " This picture was taken when I received my vintage apron swap package. It's reversible, made from a tablecloth, and the creator's own pattern. Of course, since this picture was taken in April, I've had my hair cut and major surgery, so though this looks like me, it's not really me.....more info is available on my blog Sno-Wear. It needs sprucing up, that hasn't happened yet because my recovery has been more intense that I thought it would be. Any questions, just ask."

Well, I asked. San-Dee is recovering from a bi-lateral mastectomy. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in her right breast and what is considered "stage zero" in her left. "Stage zero" is the growth of abnormal cells that could turn to cancer. Instead of going in for biopsies every 6 months she took matters into her own hands and had it all eradicated. Talk about being pro-active!

This apron is one she made for the Garden Apron Swap hosted by Lucy and Shawnee. Her partner had a garden apron so she made her a garden party apron, which is double layer with vintage fabric that is sheer and embossed. Through the vintage cloth we can see the beautiful floral fabric. San-Dee decided this would be a great apron for entertaining on her partner's deck in the summer months. As you can see she is a talented apron maker. She also recently joined the "I Love Lucy" apron swap with Shawnee over at Shawnee's Tangled Tales. I know I can't wait to see what she comes up with. If the above apron is any indication of her talents I know it will be beautiful and who ever the recipient is will be a very lucky apron wearer.

San-Dee, you are rockin' cancer and rockin' the sewing machine. Keep up the good work. As for the rest of you out there go see San-Dee and wish her a long life of health, happiness, and lots of apron sewing!
