A mysterious blue gift. Is it an elephant in there?
Nope, something lighter:
A floss fob tag made by the sweetest person on earth: Barbara . I'm already the lucky recipient of another hand made gift won in one of Barbara's giveaway. She made that one for my birthday; isn't it sweet and thoughful? Thank you Barbara: I didn't have one yet and I feel joyous today thanks to you !!! It means a lot to me that you took time from your busy life to stitch something for me.
Today, we did all we had planned yesterday. First the agency, then the insurance company where we were attended by a very nice, smiling employee who will bright the day of the grumpiest person on earth. Then we headed to the post office where smiles are spare ... We tried to find more carton boxes (smaller sizes ) but we were not lucky ...
I forgot to mention that I took advantage to be at the post office to ship Katha magazine this morning !!! Watch your mailbox Katha and please, let me know when it arrive !!!
I did take my favorite break last night and stitched my beautiful fuchsia. I don't know why but my fabric starts to get dirty where the fabric was folded ... It bothers me because I'm afraid the colors may bleed when I'll wash it. I don't know why it's happening. I always wash my hands before stitching. Maybe it's because the fabric was folded? ( I did try to iron before stitching on it but the marks stayed ... ) Maybe it's my scanner? But that part is never directly in the scanner. Morever, the huge piece of fabric always stays on my armchair where nobody can reach it ... It's a real bother ...
I'm sorry I don't really have to stop by your blogs lately: I do try to read them though.
Have a great week end !!!
