Found on my doorstep...

OK, so if you like to follow my bog I'm sure you 've noticed the completely horrendous lack of posts lately.  Let me just say 2 words - school and sewing.  I'll spare you the other details that have contributed to this lack of blog posting.  You can thank me!

I really had the best of intentions to blog about this box that was mailed to me the exact week it arrived.  But I didn't get it done.  Then I thought about doing it so often that I began to be convinced that I already had posted about it.  But after perusing my blog I find that I, in fact, did NOT post about it.  And it deserves to be posted about!  I was beyond thrilled when I opened this.  And I'm hording this stuff like it is gold!!!!!

 Vintage seam binding - the dreamy ribbon kind - my absolute favorite!!  I use this stuff in projects, on clothing items I create, as ribbon tied around gifts, and anything else I can think of!  It is just the best and the vintage kind is the best colors.
 The box had a note taped to the top and when I opened it I found it was from my best friend from way back before I can even remember!!  It said 'happy sewing'.  I could not imagine.  My gasp of delight when I tore open the box could probably be heard all down the block! 
Thank you, thank you, S.S.!!  I am so thrilled that you thought of me while shopping at that auction!  I can't wait to have time to create some really fun stuff with all this.  It makes me happy just seeing it sit there in the crate all ready for whenever inspiration strikes:)

You mean that I could actually use the big ole box of that stuff that resides in my attic?! I bought it at a garage sale years ago and there it still sits.

My mom used to use these. I found 3 unopened packages in a trunk of her things last year. I kept them though I don't sew any longer. Looks like you'll have lots of fun times using them. We hope to hear from you again!
