I've Got Mail!

... and here is the proof!

The orange envelope lived up to my expectations - that's for sure!

Out came a bag adorned with the cutest fabric collage and a sweet inscription.

And then out of the bag popped the top Emily from Em Celebrates! generously offered me a couple of weeks ago.

She posted about a couple of UFO's in need of a new home and I volunteered to "adopt" one of them. Thank you, Emily, for choosing me to take care of your flower children. I shall nurture them and let them blossom!

Here you can see me taking a picture of the top while profiting from one hour of sunshine (a rare commodity in the last couple of weeks) but for some reason I made a video instead of a simple photo (don't ask!), so if you want to see a better shot of what the top looks like you can peek at Emily's photo of it.

I think I'll let the top hang around while I make up my mind about adding some borders and raid my stash for matching fabric. I'll keep you posted.

BTW if you like looking at gorgeous nature and wildlife photos, do visit Em's blog and enjoy the sight of a mustang (no kidding!), an enchanted tree, majestic scenery, or if you feel particularly adventurous imagine yourself in this picture. Have fun!


  1. Ah, it is nice to get packages from friends, and this one is beautiful! Thank you so much for your visit to my place and for your kind words; indeed that DP name was fun, but wouldn't it have been for my Irishman, I would have been clueless. He is a very smart man.;)
    Have a lovely Friday,

  2. Glad you recognized my sense of humor in my e-mail. My ‘X’ is addicted to knitting. Anyone who does patchwork, kitting or sewing has one thing I lack…An abundance of ‘Patience.’
    P.S. - For some unknown reason I had an extremely difficult time posting this comment. I don't know if it was something on my end or a glitch in your settings. Have a great weekend.

  3. oh how I love to get mail, thanks for visiting my blog

  4. Hello, cutie. Sean and I were reading your blog this morning and giggled as we clicked on your link and there was Sean in Lake Powell. YOu are such a neat person and us followers are lucky to "know you." Em

  5. I can't believe what a SMALL world it truly is.
    Don't you just LOVE Em?
    I've never met a lady so full of love and kindness, as she is.
    What a gem of a gift!!! Congratualtions! :)
