Sorry about the little unexpected break. My overworked husband has been hogging the computer with all his assignments and school stuff, so I haven't had the chance to upload photos and blog. Doesn't he realize my need for blogging? Oh well, hopefully I can sneak in a little blog time when he's taking a break.
Last week I received this lovely package from meg for the patchwork swap. Isn't is great? I think her picture of the scraps look better mine because I had already rummaged through them by the time I got around to taking a pic. I love how she used scraps to contain the scraps - so clever! She sent me scraps of every color of the rainbow.
But that wasn't all - she also included this patchwork needlebook and this super fabulous knitting book from the 60's. Wowzer!! I love those sweaters! I can't wait for my knitting skills to improve enough to make one of these babies. Until then, I'll just look at the book and drool.
Because I'm a total dufus, I haven't gotten around to showing you these adorable button brooches made by Lori. Aren't they cute? A while back Lori commented that she liked some fabric I had, so I sent her some. In return as a thank you (which she totally didn't have to do) she sent me these along with some trims. Wasn't that nice? It was kind of ironic that she sent me these because at the time I was totally into buttons, ordering oodles of them off ebay and etsy. Now I know what to do with all those buttons - I'm sure you'll be seeing some button brooches on some upcoming bags.
Yay for good mail!
