early last week abby suggested we do a materials swap. the computer had barely stopped notifying me of the message when i sent her back a note that said.... oh my god, YES!
the box was loaded with good stuff, and with not one thing i had already. there are lots of little calico prints, so many that are vintage and just so fun to consider what i will do with them... there is one, that i love especially, a linen print - the third from the bottom in this picture - that i am sure i won't do anything with because i like it too much to use. this way, i will always have some and won't ruin the piece i have by cutting into it and then not having the project work... anyone else like that?
she also included some trims, buttons, little pillow with the letter g, a wonderful little atc to add to my small but spectacular collection and some moo cards! this is the first time i have touched a moo card, and i can see why there is some excitement surrounding them. they are pretty damned cool.
abby posted yesterday showing a bird she made using the brown and cream chevron print near the bottom here.... she used it for the legs and some accent, but... the use of it on the legs is just plain inspired... as are all her creations. but, i think we all know how i feel about the birds now, don't we? therefore it has found a special place in my heart...
abby, thanks so much for the swap. it was quick, fun and oh so fruitful.
also in the mail were some bits of liberty print i got on ebay, waiting for one more auction to close and then more shall be coming... ohhh that tana lawn... if i could marry it, i would.
sorry corey, you're out, liberty's in....
