Not your Grandma's Apron

This weekend is party time here in the sticks.   We have 2 parties to attend.  One is a Christmas party with the girls I work with. 
 
Tradition has it that we have a white elephant gift exchange at the party.  I have received hair scrunchies, one size fits all popcorn shirts, VHS tapes (not g, pg or r), and a tangled ball of Christmas lights, to name a few of the gifts over the years.  Being the overachiever that I am, I turned a little fabric into my gift for this year's exchange.

Now, if you have ever had a white elephant gift exchange, you know, this would be a pretty sweet gift.
 
 
But, that just would not do.  Did I mention that this apron is reversible?   Some days you feel like a good girl and some days...well.  lol  Thanks to my friend Joan over at MooseStash Quilting (I won the fabric for the back in her giveaway) this apron is a conversation starter, for sure.

I think my co-workers will love it.  Oooh, la, la. I've been wanting to make something for my girlfriends at work and when this fabric arrived it was just the ticket.  There wasn't enough of this fabric to make 18 mug rugs, so I will just watch them fight over this one item..  I wonder if the winner will wear it in the salon??! 
 
By the way, I know I called this post, "Not your Grandma's Apron," but I know a few grandmothers who would wear this in a heartbeat.  One of mine included..lol

Let's Party,
