The first was from my gorgeous email/skype friend Sylvia from NY state in the US. Sylvia you are so kind and thoughtful and I really enjoyed ripping open your parcel. Look what was inside. A lovely handmade bag in my favourite colour – purple. It also has a handmade glass button. If you click on the image you’ll get a larger one and will be able to get a better look at it. That fabric is really me, as are the two Kaffe Fassett fat quarters. I also scored a lovely beehive needle keeper and some Mettler thread that Sylvia has been talking to me about which she recommends for applique. It’s 60wt and 100% cotton, so I’m looking forward to trying that out.
The second parcel was my order form Hancocks of Paducah. Here is the fabric portion of it. Some Kona cottons in white, midnight and Dresden Blue and some Kaffe Fasset fabric. It is called Radiation and I ordered it in the red and the black colourways. My Kona Colour card is on back order and unfortunately they sent me the wrong batting – polyester instead of cotton – still you can’t have everything.
