I hadn’t planned on going to the post office today but since I had to run a few errands anyway, I decided to stop in to check our mail box. One bill and a card. The card means that there is something inside the office that is being held for pick up because it won’t fit into the box.
Could it be the parcel with my stitching supplies that I’ve been waiting two long weeks for?
It was indeed but to my surprise, there were two other parcels waiting for me as well…both from Australia. Those I’ll tell you about in another post.
I am so excited about starting this next project. I decided that after spending so much time on my Raggedy & Friends quilt, I needed a change of pace. Although I’m really a newbie when it comes to x-stitching, when I first laid eyes on this project, I just knew that I had to make one.
It’s a needle case called “Flowers for Sarah” from the book Thank You, Sarah Tobias by Blackbird Designs.
Tonight I’ll be prepping the linen by basting the center and fold guidelines as I watch the Olympics in order to be ready to dive in tomorrow. Woo hoo!
This is how the order was wrapped…
And here’s what was inside…
Can you guess what I’ll be doing tomorrow morning?
