Ever since the Nervousness main site went down I haven’t done much mail art. So random surprises in the mailbox have been few and far between.
However, this holiday season brought me some unexpected delights. First, this gorgeous card carved and printed by the uber-talented Lemur from from the plains of Canada. Ever since meeting her I have been in awe of what she can do with fabric, thread and paint.
The Lemur is famous for her self portrait quilt which appeared in Quilting Arts magazine and went on tour all over the USA and who knows where else.
Then came a very mysterious package from Scotland. I didn’t recognize the return address and couldn’t imagine what was inside. It was a pink handknit set for me and a little snowman for Gwen. Doesn’t he look right at home on a fluffy white comforter?
These lovely gifts were from Isobel who is the sister of The Scot who is the husband of my Aussie friend Sheila, aka aubirdwoman! It has been warm here but as soon as the temps drop I will be stepping out in this ensemble. Gwen has been staring intently at the snowman because she loves black and white and contrasting colors.
Thank you ladies for the hand made holiday goodness!
