Just kidding--this is NOT my stack of mail...
Sometimes it is something fabulous, made by someone else. This arrived a few days ago, one of the blocks from the Stash Trad Bee, made by the fabulous Corey of Little Miss Shabby. Aren't those little green martians in the center the best?Helen in the U.K. I just love it that the package says Royal Mail. That just elevates it a whole different level, doesn't it?
Inside, was a Union Jack, with Helen's tiny careful piecing. I think Helen uses hers for a thread catcher but I plan on using it as a needle book. It is SO cute! She also added some very British-inspired fat quarters and a little Pantone notebook--in ORANGE!! She knows me well, I think.I hope you stop by and say hi to Helen and Archie (you'll see his sweet face in her blog header).
I can't remember how long ago it was that Carly and I became friends. It's been awhile. I just love everything about her--her writing, her creativity. She is even part of an improv group. That would freak me out, but I sure would love to see her perform some time. So months ago I asked if she would be interested in a private pouch swap. She said yes (I was so excited). We never decided on a firm completion date. That's a bad judgment call on my part, being an active member in the Procrastination Club. So one hot day in August, a package arrived from Canada. Oh.My.Goodness!!!
First there were the snackies--she knows we think Old Dutch potato chips are the best. Ever.
She also included some honey, jam and Saskatoon berry chocolates that come from her region.Yum!
And now look at this side!
My heart just warms each time I look at the beauties that have come in the mail from far and wide, from women whose connections have enriched my life in so many ways.
I'm linking up at Friday Felicities.
