MAILBOX SURPRISE

MAILBOX SURPRISE



















This parcel arrived in my mailbox and I could hardly wait to open it. I managed to get control of my excitement as I wanted to take a picture of the lovely package that was inside. Look at the beautiful pansy wrapping paper and the tag all tied up with gorgeous silk ribbon..
This came to me from Pat Winter... my crazy patch mentor.... She has been so inspiring and encouraging on my crazy patch journey which is just beginning for me .
The kit is full of so many wonderful things to work with,,, beautiful fabrics in pinks, mauves and greens.... Silk ribbons in complimentary shades, all hand dyed by Pat,,,, beads, lace , special lace motifs and some of the lovely old fashion girls and flowers that I love so much.. So far I have just stroked and looked at all these wonderful pieces while trying to think about how I will use them..
Whatever I decide on will be very special... Thanks Pat for sharing your expertise and your friendship.
