A Very Appreciated Parcel

Around Christmas time, Jo over at Bearpaw was hosting a giveaway containing so many lovely goodies. I entered and by some weird stroke of weirdness, I actually won. Thank you, Jo for letting USA residents enter. I know the shipping fees can be high!

I finally received my box in the mail about a week ago! (I meant to post earlier, but my camera was not cooperating), Anywhoo.. here is are the contents of the package.

I can’t wait to make something from these gorgeous fabrics. They are all so colorful without being novelty, and so very pretty without being too girly.

Look at the handiwork on this mini quilt. I can’t even believe that this was made by hand. I bow down to you Jo! Wonderful.. i need to practice more. Maybe I should attempt quilt #2 soon..

This is by far the coolest yarn. I need to find a neat pattern, and put it to good use!

Thank you again Jo!

I felt a bit guilty posting this.. especially with all of the sadness and devastation in Japan. it’s been saved as a draft for a few days.. and I think it’s okay to post. It has helped me re-realize a few things i haven’t thought of in a while. I just want to say that I am extremely grateful for everything that I have. For the clean air I breathe, the running water to drink, and the clothes on my back. Most of the time, we have more than we really need. This is why little things, like this parcel of fabric and yarn, make me realize how much we really have to lose. My prayers are with everyone affected by the tsunami in Japan. May everyone find their families, rebuild their lives, and appreciate all that they have. Be Safe.
