Here’s some great fabric friends have given or sold me in recent months.
Lovely houndstooth from the lovely Hannah of Peggy Ann Design.
Some nice thick upholstery-style fabric in one of my favorites – black and white. This came in a package of scrap fabric from Ali of Apearantly Sew. The rest of the scraps are so cute, can’t wait to use them in a variety of little projects.
And now, the Box O’ Wonders from Alicia in Iowa City (who guest hosted Dance Party Friday a while back).
Here we have an Anne Lamott book (love her), a DVD about the Lost Boys of Sudan and a little booklet about Miss Pearl who runs a daycare on the South Side of Chicago which offers free services to young moms who are finishing school – high school, college, technical training. Miss Pearl began this years ago and her daycare has grown into a large one, known in the community, funded by donors, grants and the state. Church groups and college kids volunteer at Miss Pearl’s – Alicia did, years ago. She’s the person who told me about Miss Pearl.
What else did Alicia send in her box? Let’s see . . .
(Alicia drew on some envelopes that contained loose items)
All kinds of knitting needles
A little handmade paper booklet
Cicada Grove postcards
Fabric! Vintage fabric.
A skirt to wear or use for fabric
Sequins on a rope! Sequiny trim. I don’t know what to call this stuff, but I like it.
