Apparently, like so many things lately, it slipped my mind and I haven’t mentioned yet 😦
One of the great reasons for loving this Series is that it manages to combine a few of my favorite things: Sewing, sending and received “real” letters and packages and blogging with friends from across the world.
Thank you Marta and Marte for the invitation!
Earlier in December, my package was sent to another very talented lady across the ocean and I just can’t wait to see what she manages to do with it 🙂
I’m not disclosing her name yet due to the surprise factor, but I know she has already received one of the packages – I had to send her a second package, because a “little girl” I know decided to save some of the intended contents on her “treasure box” and I only discovered them a couple of days later (do rest assured, this little girl got a few buttons and ribbons as replacement).
And yesterday when I arrived at the office I had the most lovely package waiting for me in my desk …
Laura from behind-the-hedgerow, send me the best mail package ever! I just love everything about it – and she was so amazing in her fabric and notion selection.
I can pick a single favorite – everything is so exquisite!
My package included a lovely Liberty jersey (not to worry Laura, I do love it and I have sew with jersey before – here, here and here. I just feel that I have more limited options when sewing with knits and I didn’t want to disappoint my Mailbox Surprise pal), a handful of beautiful buttons, a pack of jersey needles, beeswax (need to try this soon and check their site. This product looks amazing!) and the most perfect pincushion (do you believe me if I told you making a similar version was on my to-sew list for quite a while?). Laura attention to detail was incredible (and really put me to shame). She even wrote a fantastic note on how to sew with knits and with great directions for choosing the right pattern. I can’t wait to start working on this right after Christmas.
Thank you, Laura!!
