Incredible Mail Day
A couple of days ago, I had the most wonderful mail day ever! I received these beautiful, springtimey fabric napkins with crochet edges from Caroline of Trillium Design. She was my partner in the Table Top Swap. This set of napkins, however, she used as bubble wrap for a chocolate bar. Can you believe it? It's because they were a back up set in case she couldn't finish her other plan in time.
These were the plan! She used one of my favorite linens and edged them with English Paper Pieced octagons on front and back. Insane right??? I couldn't believe that she sent me both sets. You will have to go read the story behind them here. Both sets are so pretty that I will have a very hard time using them.
I also received this wonderful tote bag from Ayumi. A little while ago, I sent her this mini quilt in a personal swap. Of course, I love everything about this bag! I particularly like the block designs and the fabric choices. Ayumi always makes wonderful fabric choices. There is so much thought behind each little piece and it shows.
She appliqued a number 3 on the back for my three children. Sweet huh?
Ayumi has recently taken to carving eraser stamps and made me this adorable "A" stamp in its own cute little bag. She also sent along oodles of fun goodies--lunch boxes for the kids, candy, fabric, stickers.
I am so fortunate to have met so many lovely people, who go and spend insane amounts of time and thought making things for me even though we have never met. Thank you Caroline and Ayumi!
