  • surprise

    I received a wonderful surprise in my letter box.
    Chris Gray send me an envelope
    (Chris from Mabon Arts, see my story about Festival of Quilts here…).

    What was in it??

    Aren’t you curious?

     Ooohh such a gorgeous sending …

    You got more curious?

    A color I simply adore,

    a texture I love,

    and immediately an idea and a project coming into my grey cells,
    and … for what ?  What is it, are you asking ?

    This stunning yarn …

    You cannot feel and touch it through your screen, but I can assure you that this is so soft and is going to be such a joy to knit.

    Chris put a nice card with it too, which on his own is already a little art-piece.

    More of her creations can be discovered on her two blogs
    Mabon Arts    and   Textile Butterfly (clic on names, opening in new window 

    Thank you very much Chris!!!

    PS: I hope she can make it to be in “l’Aiguille en Fête” in Paris next year so that you also have a chance to meet this nice lady .

    Have a nice day to all of you. Remember I’ll be in Ste Marie aux Mines for the rest of the week, promoting Prym products on the stand F43.

    Maybe see you there?
