Now, you might have noticed that my blogging has fallen to the wayside lately. I'd like to quickly remedy that. Let's start with a little catch up....
You may remember that I made a name tag for a secret partner. It has finally arrived at her house! Want to see it?
This little tag was embroidered for Sarah, of Narcoleptic in a Cupboard...clearly. I think she's super fantastic, so I wanted to make something that reflected her fantastic use of color and her clean, clear style of design.
Her little blog mascot is this cute wee monkey...
...so I stitched her little cutie taking a nap with quilty dreams on the back.
I think she's happy with it, so I am completely thrilled. Did you happen to see Sarah's post when she received her little name tag? I am so over the moon that she posted photos with Miss Ellicat. What could be better? If you have not already read her post, get on over there....you will giggle yourself silly.
I can't wait to meet her in just a few week's time!
In other news...do you remember Love on the Blocks? Well, how could you forget the School Bus orange? I still see it when I shut my eyes!
Well, it was purchased earlier this week by a lovely man from Galway. He is a phenomenal pianist, teacher and eternal optimist. An all around fantastic guy. I was just absolutely shocked when he bought it...then a little sad it was leaving my home (if I'm honest), but now I am just absolutely thrilled that it will go to a new home where I know he will take great care of it. I'm hand delivering it tomorrow night over dinner. I just can't wait.
And...this is the last bit...honest... I hosted a little pop up shop over last weekend for the local Irish Patchwork Society meeting. You might remember that I have an awful time controlling myself when the little shops come into our monthly meetings. Well, this past weekend was my turn to show off the fabrics from the shop. It was a great preview for the local ladies before the shop launched. Want to see the little stand?
That's the news, guys. Again, thank you so very much for making the shop launch such an exciting adventure. You are a wonderful group of ladies.
