Ah I love happy mail! It makes my morning, my day, my week, & the people behind the packages? Well, they’re even better.
Here in reverse order, is what has landed on my doorstep lately, making me smile, jig & swoon;
Just arrived; a sale order from the Lovely Nic of Yardage Design. If you missed her sale, I don’t want to rub it in, but, well… nerr nerr (..just kidding, as of one minute ago there are still some goodies left…). I bought some misprint market bags; a couple to use as market bags (I’m such a rebel) & one to craft with. Nic also included a bunting panel; though how she knew I’d been umming & ahhhing over one of those too is a mystery; Thank you Nic!
Yesterday a HUGE box arrived from somewhere unfamiliar. I had no idea what it could have been, but when I opened it You Sew Girl, Nicole Mallalieu’s book was inside. I won it via Cath’s blog & I am a little beside myself about it to be honest. I wanted this SO BAD & was going to buy it, but our washing machine kicked the bucket a week after our heater died & I just couldn’t afford it, so when I found out I won a copy, I may have (like the big girly sook I am apparently turning into) welled up a little. Wow it’s a great book by the way, I can’t stop looking through it.
Annnnnnnnnnnd, last but not least, my swap cushion! It arrived last week & it’s gorgeous but I have been waiting for a sunny day to photograph it. Here it is in situ on my bed. Clare made it for me with vintage fabric & not only that but she sent some lovely little gifts along too.
