It sort of feels wrong for a grown woman to squeak when she opens the mail- a bit like going- Ahh! when you drink a cup of tea ( I promise I don't do that...yet). I have had some great mail this week, almost like a secret extra birthday that I didn't know I had. These printing press beauties came from Suzanne, an act of kindness, she knows how much I love to see her printing press photos and student activities.
You can just see my vkb initials stamped on the corner. It is a notebook with upcycled paper- very loud squeaks! And just look at the cards- I think they are going on the wall. Printing is one of those processes that I love with an intensity but I am too messy when I work and maybe a bit impatient so I have to admire the work of others. I really admire Suzanne's!
Ayumi sent me 2 beautiful bright and happy blocks for 318 Patchwork Bee to go with my Teatime theme. I love them Ayumi, so sunny! They look very pretty alongside Charise's tea caddy and Leila's teapot. I plan to make a table runner with my 318 blocks.
And Amy sent me some paper bits and pieces for no reason apart from her general loveliness- this is her latest paper pieced pattern on sale here. Her shaping on this watering can is unbelievable- look at the handle!
Thankyou ladies, you are making this a very happy mail week xxx
