I feel so behind on my posting lately. I’ve got all sorts of things I’ve been wanting to write about and I keep getting sidetracked. I’ll start with the mail. I wasn’t getting any mail for weeks and weeks. So depressing. Then last week almost everything from the outstanding trades I had with people came in a windfall. Almost all on the same day! Now again, mail drought. I have suspicions about my mail carrier.
From hopefully the first of many trades with Angry Chicken Amy…bits of kimono and obi fabric, some of her hand dyed fabric (!), a frog closure and a cute little notebook with graph paper – perfect for quilt designing. Thanks Amy! And thanks for the Oscar music – it’s great!
From the vintage clothing trades…
From Carolee a very cool "wee" journal she made for me and some great ribbons. Thank you Carolee, I love it! And you’ll be happy to know it has been mussed. I jumped in and started making crafty to-do lists.
From Chrissy… awesome bright beautiful fq’s that I’m dying to use, a very cool embroidered bookmark that is now up on my inspiration board, ric-rac, ribbon, kogepan and a cream puff eraser! So good! Thank you Chrissy 🙂 And I’m so happy to hear you took that clutch to Sin City. It wasn’t seeing much action around here.
From Andrea…a cute little cafe pupu
notebook, polka dot fabric and buttons and some cool vintage postcards. Thanks Andrea!
Also in the mail, a surprise from Carolyn. Thanks Carolyn – what a great book! And I love my mix CD 🙂
And some neat Fairytale Calendars from Amanda Woodward Design. Her photos are better than mine would be. Thanks!
What else is new and exciting. Well, let’s see. It’s snowing! And I have a horrible cold. Neither new or exciting. It’s around this time every year that I start thinking about moving back to Texas. Hopefully more catching up tomorrow…
