mail love


much to my delight, this little earth retro eight pack of fat quarters was delivered to me yesterday, a "thinking about you" gift from my sister, who recently took a sewing class, too, and picked this out for me at the shop where she received instruction. it's so sweet. and so good to slow down, send and receive a little mail love, in this online, instant communication techno fad world.

give a little love. receive a little love. this weekend. it's all good. peace out!

I love getting fabric from my sister, too! This reminds me that I've been lax in sending her any myself.

Oh how sweet!! It IS exciting to receive a gift like this in the mail. This post reminds me of the time years ago (when I had my first 35mm camera - film, of course!) and I ordered a super-duper telephoto lens for the camera from a catalog. When the UPS man delivered the lens, I was jumping up and down and squealing over it and the poor guy was waiting for me to sign for it. He said, "well, it doesn't take much to get you country girls excited, does it?" hahahahahaha! But I LOVE that fabric. It's beautiful and I'm sure you'll create something wonderful with it:)

Would you ever want to do a bag swap? Maybe I would have to kick in some extra somethings, since your bags are always amazing and inspiring! I would be honored to have an Ana original, but I am not sure you would be up for it or interested. I am having a lot of fun making the Buttercup bags though! I could offer a Buttercup with a hand-hemmed hankie to sweeten the deal...
