I heard the mail lady come today and when I checked the mailbox all that was in there was an advertisement. Natalie just went outside because it looked like a storm was forming above our house (which it was – we just got a good downpour) and she found a package on the porch. Yippee!!! I saw it was from Carolyn in Iowa and I thought – wait I know who that is. So I figured it was going to be my Appliqué Posey Needlecase. When I opened the package, there was a tag on one baggy that said Natalie, Gordon and Alice, I thought wait a minute I thought it was going to be for me. The kids were so excited. My husband was very happy, he gets on me about doing the swaps and was a little irritated that I did another one, until I opened the package and he seemed happier than me.
Inside the kids package was a pattern by Carolyn herself (Lee Prairie Designs) called “Spring Flowers” it has a pattern for a small embroidered quilt and little sock bunnies in a bunting. The kids are so excited, Alice has already gathered some socks to make the bunnies.
And yes, I did receive my beautiful needlecase. I absolutely love the fabric, beautiful, perfect and fabric I do not have. Carolyn also sent me a pattern for Appliqué Christmas Aprons. She also included a picture of her beautiful grandchildren, all 6 of them, goodness I know they keep her busy!!
Here is my awesome needlecase:
And the inside:
Thank you so much Carolyn, your work is beautiful. You are so talented!! If you are interested in finding out more about Carolyn and Lee Prairie Designs go to http://www.leeprairiedesign.blogspot.com.
So I have been working on Halloween/Fall stuff, here is a basket with some of the items, not much in there but a lot more to come.
All for now – off to be crafty – I have a feeling I will be making some little bunnies tonight!!
