Good Mail

Good mail is the best! You know - cards from people you actually know, purchases from your favorite online quilt shops, bee blocks from far-away places and swap packages from partners unknown. Oh, but I bet you agree, the very best good mail is the unexpected!! And what a surprise it was to receive this patchwork travel sewing kit from Marci of Marci Girl Designs!
This was a total surprise, and totally appreciated! I'll give you a little tour . . .the "front", including nice long ties to keep things all bundled together . . . love all that Bliss and the uber sweet monogram!
The inside, with special places for needles, thread, scissors, and other sewing goodies . . .
And, here's the darling little sewing kit all packed up!
Marci used the tutorial {here} by Amy of lots of pink here! It is impeccably made and I love every little detail!
So far it has only gone so far as the couch, but oh was it handy as I hand-stitched last night. I know I will enjoy using this little kit alot! Thanks so much, Marci!!

Love it! It is so clever and USEFUL! What a gem of a quilting friend (the person and the sewing kit)! So glad the tutorial is still available---I'd like to give this a try.

I'm Jealous! :) I totally needed one of those when I was carrying my baby quilt gifts around with me and sewing whenever I got a minute! It is absolutely beautiful... I love the teal and red combo, one of my recent favs.
