My Happiest Tax Day Ever

No, I’m not getting a refund. In fact, I had to use that other IRS label…the one for the payment voucher…but let’s not talk about that. What made today so wonderful is the package that arrived from Jessica, my partner in Lindamade’s Patchwork Swap.

Jess sent a happy orange box filled with so much color and wonder that I can hardly stand it!

Vintage and other gorgeous fabrics, ribbons, lace, ric-rac, trims, an embroidery pattern, a darling deer pin, colorful labels, and a charming little box of lovelies from her button collection.

And then there are the sweet handmade coasters (!) and another package of the most wonderful fabric scraps for my crumb quilt...pieces she cut from favorites in her collection of vintage fabrics. And these aren't just scraps tossed willy-nilly into an envelope, either. They're carefully trimmed, artfully arranged little gems!

I couldn't have asked for a more thoughtful (and generous!) swap partner. Big thanks, Jessica, for making my day!
