Squeaks

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!

  1. Oh what marvellous mail! Love all those blocks. I considered taking up printing only I didn't have enough space or money for even a small press and thought I'd be too lazy to go to a co-operative to use stuff.

  7. You have to send mail to get mail.

    I love the green teapot with the daisies above. I might have to do another tea cozy. I feel some sewing comin' on.
