Yesterday was a cloudy, rainy, cold (17 degrees Celsius? What a summer!) day when I felt like doing nothing but sleeping.
Then my sister went to the mailbox and said there was some fabric for me.
Fabric? I thought.
Fabric indeed. Oona, you may claim to be a selfish brat, but your Pay It Forward is fabulous!
Fabric bangles, as promised. Just the thing to wear with my orange T-shirt. Or my beige T-shirts. Or my blues. Clever.
The aforementioned fabric. The roses look familiar - or is it just me? They demand to be a lacy dress overlay, somehow. The other fabric, an embroidered shiny blue fabulousness that cannot be as well seen on the photo as I thought, probably wants to be a fabulous shiny blue embroidered skirt. Together, the fabrics reminded me of my beloved Latvian mittens.
And then there's the CD, "Oona's Jumpin' July".
I must admit not all of the songs are my cup of tea, but others are very much so, so it balances out. The last one? Wow.
Now I must finally gather my wits and courage and material and everything and do my PIF. I like that acronym, don't you?
Aren't friends wonderful. We, in California - northern - are having very gloomy days and I have been very depressed by it. I was doing chores and went to put out the trash - opened my door and there was a package for Moi! A friend had sent me 2 vintage dresses and two pairs of long white kid gloves! She found them and thought they would fit me! I love my friends. Your Oona is a jewel!ReplyDelete
Oona's a sunshine. Just check her blog! And surprises like that are the best.Delete
ooooooooooooooh i am SO HAPPY that last tune was your thing! that's my favorite band (of all genres), the bad plus, that i yammer on about on le blog. i was hoping to introduce them to some new ears with that tune, i hope they don't mind.ReplyDelete
i must pay homage to mercury handmade for the pale blue embroidered fabric, it was part of the lovely one/one swap package she sent me. i couldn't think what to do with it and it was waaaaay too beautiful to languish in my stash. i just know you'll do something amazing with it.
so glad you like your box, my dear friend!
So it's Pay It Forward twice. :-) Thank you for everything.Delete
I think it worked. I'm going to look up more from them... Marta said, though, that if I wanted to jump around in rhythm to that song, I'd jump myself to death. ;-)
Beautiful rose fabric! Lucky you!ReplyDelete
I'm thinking of some ways to make YOU lucky with my Pay It Forward... Hopefully I'll manage it. :-)Delete
Happy making :)ReplyDelete
I'm sure to enjoy it!Delete
