Stash Happy Applique: apron giveaway!

April 27, 2012, 13:27 pm  Posted by Lark

Mother’s Day is just around the corner on May 13. My mom loves flamingos so I’m usually in the throws of making something flamingo-themed – that’s a lot of pink and lime green, my friends! And almost being a new mom myself really has me in the spirit this year.

Author Cynthia Shaffer thought this mom-and daughter-apron set from Stash Happy: Appliqué would be the perfect gift to celebrate, whether you want the set to give to your best friend, your sister, or whether you’re the mom yourself!

To enter for a chance to win the aprons, please leave a comment on this post by 9 p.m. EST on Friday, May 4. Any comment is fine—though we’d love to hear what plans you have for Mother’s Day! One winner will be selected at random from among all eligible entries and notified by Monday, May 7. This contest is now closed – the winner will be contacted shortly! Thanks to everyone who shared their Mother’s Day plans and apron memories!

    Gwemau44 says:

    While I haven’t worn an apron in decades I just might start again. These are really cute and it saves hunting that towel up when you are super busy in the kitchen. Gina S. about the curtains they are super cool.

    These are so cute. I’d definitely keep one for myself and for my little baking buddy. I’m no mom, but my niece would love it because we bake together for just about any holiday we have an excuse for. 

    Drmithome says:

    Aprons are so cute. I have added this book to my Mother’s Day wish list.

    Christine Bolin says:

    My 85 year old mother has decided to retire from cooking.  But, I could definitely use an apron for when I cook for her, too.

    shirley says:

    I have 4 grown boys so Mothers Days is usually extra special, I ask for No presents just personal Time, they usually build me something or help me with a flower bed. The aprons would be lovely for me and my granddaughter to cook in ,,,, thank you

    Esiff says:

    Aprons are adorable.. my granddaughter and I would have a grand time baking! super applique book too!! Enter me please!

    justval says:

    I have a couple vintage aprons that I cherish dearly. What a wonderful give-a-way

    Karrie Smith says:

    I love those aprons!  I want to do something fun with my daughter that day.  Something simple like the park and something good to eat for dinner.

    Cat Jack says:

    Ahhh so cute! My mum does love baking but I think for mothers day we will head out to a restaurant for breakfast/afternoon tea :)

    Melissa says:

    My mom is now 91, so every Mother’s Day and birthday is very precious to us for “kids”.  She is truly the heart of our family and we gather around her every chance.  Thank you for your generous giveaway.  The aprons are darling.

    Amber says:

    Mother’s Day plans? As little as possible! I deserve to be pampered, right? 

    Super cute aprons.  I am a waitress so, on Mother’s day I will be leaving my husband at home with the kids while I go off to work….

    Sewsilly says:

    My Mother’s Day plans will be to head out to my moms (74 yrs old), who just lives across town, and take out as much food as I can so she won’t have to cook.  My kids, grandkids and siblings/families will also be there to join in and have fun.  If I win, this would become grandma/granddaughter aprons to use when my little 6yr old granddaughter Kyla comes to visit. She loves to cook with Gma!

    CynthiaT59 says:

    Both children will be here for Mother’s Day!  I may just sit and stare at them all day!  …I know a college kid’s worst nightmare!  (I just hope all the laundry will be done by then!)  I NEVER thought I was ever going to get married and have children…It’s hard to say how these two individuals have changed my life and my perspective on the way I see the world.  The time just flew!

    This Mother’s Day I am hoping that I will receive my annual “breakfast in bed” from my kids again this year…it would be fun for them to have aprons to inspire their (lovingly burnt) creations!

    While, I don’t have any particular plans for Mother’s Day, as my mom passed 2 years ago, I do always try to do something with my grand daughter, (she is almost 3) that she can give to her mommy for Mother’s Day.  This matching apron set would be perfect for the two of them!! 

    Michele T says:

    Mother’s Day is my relaxing day – no pressures put on my plate on that day!! Love it!!

    ellen briggs says:

    My mom is going to be 88 this year. Our family tradition is to go over to her house and do the odd jobs we never seem to get to during the year. Usually this entails yard work, pruning and weeding and planting. It’s just me, my brother and our spouses. Afterwards we usually get some take out food. She always enjoys having us over but considering her age, nowadays she isn’t up to cooking for all of us and of course, we wouldn’t let her on Mother’s Day! 

    Wendy says:

    Nice! The curtains on the cover are charming. I would live the aprons for my daughter and law and grand daughter. Wish me luck!

    Bainbridge Tanya says:

    In the UK we have mother’s day in March…… I had breakfast in bed, and then we had a day out at the park – fab x

    Beth says:

    For mother’s day this year I want to spoil my DIL – she is expecting her first child and I want her to feel special!

    Chandice says:

    This would be a great mother’s day gift for my daughter and my granddaughter :D  She would be absolutely thrilled to receive this!  And it would give me great pleasure to send to her :D  Thank you very much!

    Karen A says:

    I just look forward to having my 3 daughters home from college. And maybe they’ll spoil me a little!!

    Lacey Doyle says:

    I’m not entirely sure what our plans are around here for Mother’s Day.  I’m not even sure if my husband is off work or not.  Love those curtains on the cover of the book!!!

    barbara says:

    i’ll will be waiting for my kids to call

    Quilter says:

    Lovely aprons…..my 3 sons will call; or maybe even show up. Hubby will take me out for supper.

    Lisa Kilinc says:

    Cute Apron’s! Mother’s day is always a special day for me! I love spending time with my daughter doing silly stuff!

    I hope my mum wins!

    These aprons are just darling! Not sure about mother’s day this year, but a summer trip is being planned for me, my daughter and my grand daughter to visit my older aunt. Should be a lot of fun getting all these generations together!

    Kelly says:

    Thanks for a chance to win, they are adorable!!!

    Susan says:

    I would LOVE to gift these aprons to my sister and her grand-daughter!  Toooo cute!

    Svanwijk13 says:

    That apron is beautiful! At times like these, when life is crazy and every second counts, you appreciate everything that life has to offer. That is why this mothers day, I am going to visit my mom and dad. My dad and I will cook my mom a feast for a change, and we will have our horror movie marathon like we do every year. My dad is scared of horror films though, so it gives my mom and I a little more bonding time. Whenever I go visit her we are always cooking together and that’s why I think this beautiful apron would be perfect for us! 

    Donna Gaines says:

    I can just see me and my granddaughter wearing these aprons while we bake together in the kitchen.  Cecelia has come to love aprons as much as I do, and together we make quite a team!  I would love for us to win these beautiful aprons.  Thanks for the chance!

    Sherrym74 says:
