|The last of the lavender and a Christmas cross stitch|
I wish I was one of those who have been working all summer so that this TWO MONTH warning didn't seem so jarring and mildly panicky, but I can only focus on the nice weather. I revel in the waves on the beach, the novels on my e-reader, the wine after dinner lakeside -- all that comes with the pure hedonism of a Canadian summer.
|A pile of ironing on the way to becoming Christmas presents|
|le petit packet|
Earlier this month, I ordered some Christmas presents for myself. One of them came today from a Canadian Etsy seller, Pink Fawn Designs. Pink Fawn also has a pretty blog, and her real name is also Nancy. Hence, I was therefore compelled to buy some pretty Japanese cotton/linen from her.
Look how pretty le petite packet is! I was dithering about opening it. So I didn't do it -- yet.
She wraps the fabric is freezer paper -- which can be used to make fabric applique, and she also includes a swatch of vintage cotton sheeting. So cute.
Okay, now I am off to finish the ironing and get on with the crafting. Honest.
