We made it through another week! We had a long day in Portland yesterday
but we got my son's car back home.
I'm feeling blessed in many ways. The car getting stolen is a real pain in the rear, but nobody was hurt, our health is good and my son is still safe traveling the world for 14 months now. (he is in Hong Kong at the moment)
I've been receiving a lovely gift in the mail every month for several months now. Roxanne is going through some similar things with her mom that I went through so we have a common bond in supporting one another.
I found this cute little tin in my sewing room that is perfect!
For these wee blocks she has been hand piecing.
They will finish at 3"!
Aren't they precious? Thank you Roxanne! I think of you and your mum often. I've actually been missing my mom lately. I think it is that she loved spring and to see the trees and flowers starting to bloom and this is her her first spring not here for us to enjoy it together.
My son sent home a package when he was in Hawaii recently.
Last fall when I saw this photo they posted from Vietnam I told them a little piece of fabric wouldn't take much space. They are traveling with backpacks, not suitcases, so every inch of space counts.They were lightening their load and sent me this lovely piece of fabric made it Thailand, designed by
Jim Thompson. The photo above is a paper envelope that the fabric was inside of. It is so pretty!
The elephants panel is linen in indigo and looks like sashiko type stitching. I love it!
And here's my Instagram feed for this week.
Have a fantastic and thankful weekend!
