It was obvious that Leslie had a blast putting this assortment together and I had BLAST opening it.  Thank you so much Leslie – you have blessed me.

Another fun package in the mail yesterday was my autographed copy of…

Anna Maria Horner's brand new book - makes me dream of something to make my home-sick girl!

And I finished another apron using thrifted linen (yellow) and a vintage dresser scarf (cut in half) with the addition of some fun colorful Heather Bailey fabrics for a pocket.
