Can you believe it? This is so not fair. I don't deserve this, not-uh, not-uh.
Well, you can see there that Shelley made a gorgeous "rug mug" and sent along a shiney new yellow mug to keep it company. My kitchen is yellow, orange, pink and red, so she nailed it. That little rug mug is actually keeping me company by my laptop right now. I drink water all day long.
I was really, really hoping for a sewing machine cover, and here it is! Could it be any more fab? Linen with wavy quilting! Be still my beating heart! And all that color too. Sigh, it's perfect. My machine feels so loved (and my dining room table looks much nicer!) Do you see what else she sent?
It's just the ultimate pincushion!!!! This pincushion caddy is from Anna Maria Horner's first book Seams to Me. I've been wanting to make it because my current and only pincushion is rather embarrassing. But, I've heard it's kind of tricky to make, so I'm guiltily relieved that I don't have to make it for myself (I know, that's low, http://stitchedincolor.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.phpisn't it). I would have been thrilled to receive just the sewing machine cover. That Shelley sent this too cool pincushion made in Anna's fabrics (swoon) is so beyond amazing!
But that's not all. I know! I know! She also made me THREE hot pads. Above are pics I took of the backs. I adore those little selvedge tags. Here is Shelley's pic of the fronts:
So, what can I say? I love it! Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you to Shelley of Pink Punk Boutique!
P.S. Actually, it is my birthday weekend. Tonight I'm starting the celebrations by going out to the Indie Craft Parade in Greenville, SC with some girlfriends. Hopefully, I'll have some pics for you later.
And, I have a gift for you too... check back on Monday!
