Our Postman Rocks!

I love our postman. Sometimes we have a postwoman, but I think that's only when our postman is off. Anyway, the family went to Cleveland this weekend to visit my inlaws and when we retuned these things were waiting on the doorstep:

I bought 4 patterns from Sublime Stitching, including "TIki Freak," "Swanky Decor," "Atomique," and "Monkey Love." Now I have to find a bunch of stuff to embroider. I thought this would be a good pastime for me on vacation since I am not loving knitting and I can't take my sewing machine.

I also received my package from Sew, Mama, Sew. I am doing a pattern review for them in July. Kristin sent me a total of 1.5 yards of fabric (I chose Tangerine Damask by Michael Miller and Dots by Heather Ross), a set of handles and the pattern (actually a set of 8 patterns). I need to make at least two of the bags and write up a review for the site. I'll let you know when it is posted. Thanks Kristin and Beth!

And on an aside...my sister and brother-in-law are in France right now (*sigh*), but before they met up in Lyon, David attended a conference in Geneva. Check out this awesome picture. Inspiration for a future project??

Oh my gosh, those shutters are wonderful, maybe a little insight to who lives behind them. I think I would pick the turquoise or yellow or maybe the red ones. Too pretty.

Lyon est tres magnifique! I bought you a piece of silk from this little fabri store crammed to the ceiling with fabric. The old woman who ran the shop started arguing with a customer while waiting on me. very fun!
