Okay, they weren’t actually tied up with string and cardboard isn’t exactly paper. But they did come in brown cardboard boxes. And boxes in the mail, or by FedEx or UPS, are usually full of my favorite things. The gorgeous scarf, coffee and worry doll in the picture were a delightful surprise from my sister-in-law who recently went to Guatemala for a few weeks. Thanks M! I love, love, love this woven scarf length textile. And of course, it goes without saying that the coffee will be enjoyed by both myself and Mr. P.
A second box had an eQuilter.com purchase in it. Gorgeous blues and greens–very summery. I’m looking forward to playing with these. Part of the fun, of course, is looking at them and considering all the possibilities. Eventually, you cut into it and choose one. But in the meantime, you can daydream about them all. Maybe I’ll make some coffee and dream.
