Mail Call

30 08 2009

I get a little giddy when I pull up in front of my house and see a package sitting on the door step. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of personal mail, no matter how big or small. Molly over at apple cyder sent me a wonderful package this summer. It came in a tube, which if you ask me, is even more fun. There was paper to use for tracing patterns which immediately went into my new fiber arts cabinet (yes, that’s what I’m calling it). But the best part and the reason for the package is this fabulous belt.

Can you believe I took a picture of my gut and stuck it on the internet? Weird. Anyway – you could make your own. Just follow her wonderful tutorial. While you’re over at her place make sure to check out her posts on the birthday party she threw her husband, this princess and the pea set, and the cathedral window doll quilt she made. 

In addition she sent this sweet hat the she made. It’s from a pattern in Amy Karol’s Bend the Rules Sewing. I tried to adjust it on Eleanor’s head to take the picture, but immediately got scolded. Apparently, I’m not allowed to touch it. When I tried a 2nd time it got tucked into her backpack after another scolding. My oh my. I guess she likes it.

Great hat, great belt, great backpack!
I tried to take a picture of a stuffed elephant that I made Annie, but she said “no. it’s special” They sure are opinionated little ladies once in a while! That couldn’t be hereditary or anything, could it be?
