i have been working so much lately, trying to play 'catch up' and setting more stressed. i finished several things that needed to get done and went to deliver stuff on tuesday...that day turned into one thing after another...bad, bad day! then on wednesday, things started off very nicely...i got a parcel in the mail from a swap i did with betty at she's sew pretty! i got all this! a beautiful embroidered linen runner and these sweet cards...
and this lovely sheer vintage apron made of a vintage hankie (kind of hard to see...yesterday was positively dreary here! this was with a flash and all the lights on!)
and these fabulous cocktail napkins, and the mexican dish towels made me absolutely walk on air!
but that wasn't all! there was this pretty rose motif hankie, and these lovely little roses that betty makes, along with a little lacy pincushion that she also made! all nestled in a little package on this beautiful lilac-colored rose plate. everything came wrapped up in pink tissue paper...you know how i feel about pink! (swooning!) all the rest of the rotten week melted away! thanks so much betty! (i know, i said it a lot already...but it's really great!)
then later, i got a parcel from the DHL guy...i had been waiting for this one a while now...was starting to wonder what happened to it! a lovely pink jingly hip scarf i bought off e-bay! i'll be wearing that tonight at bellydance class! o.k...speaking of bellydance, i have cholis cut out downstairs, that are calling to me to come sew them! do you hear them too?!
