this may be the week that I make good on my vow to one day hug the mail carrier. a whole box of goodies arrived from my amazing seamstress/upholsterer grandmother. I always love receiving things from her because I am certain they carry along with them her great expertise.
I am so thrilled that she thought of me to receive these wonderful pieces of her past. this is just a sampling, the box was chock full of vintage items like this. she and my grandfather made furniture and ran a custom furniture-making shop out of a house next door to their own. in addition, my grandmother made much of the family’s clothes. who knows what great things were imagined for all of these things.
and as if that wasn’t enough a wonderful package arrived from a friend [check out her wonderful knitting focused blog] filled with bag patterns and even a few of her handmade goodies. she was having one of those honest I -am-not-really-going-to-make-this moments and I was the lucky recipient of her de-clutter.
she tossed in one of her wonderful knit sweater ornaments (aren’t they amazing?!) and a hot drink cozy. uh-hmm, I am a lucky lady. and, it all comes at a great time as I am busy sewing away in preparation for an exciting festival in a week and half. this feels like a little whisper in the studio….go! make!
