There were also a package of napkins, an adorable little address book, a fragrant bar of lavender soap, and photos of the points of interest in Groningen, which is where her sister lives. Thank you so much for thinking of me, dear friend. I am enjoying all of it so much.
You know what just happened? I just lost the rest of my photos, and can't find them. Arghhhhhhh. I will just wind this up and post again very soon. I don't have the heart to do over right now. I have the yellow "thing" put together, lacking only finishing the butterfly, and adding pieced borders............but the truth is, I don't want to even look at it right now. I have been waiting for a chintz panel from Amsterdam, to use for the center of my clamshell quilt, and it seemingly will never get here. It mailed on June 23rd, they say, and I fear it's been lost somewhere. It would be not only an expensive loss, but a true disappointment for me, if it doesn't show up. I'm making scrappy clamshells, in a fairly wide range of reproduction fabrics, but won't know for certain if they will look well until the panel either arrives, or I plan a different center. So, please cross your fingers that it will come next week, won't you? It can't hurt, and the quilt fairy might just smile on me. After all, I have prepped 352 clamshells just on "spec"..............some of them will work, won't they? Michele
