Happy Birthday to me!
Inside the mystery gift. What are the elastic loops for?
I got my card from the lovely Kathy Mack of Pink Chalk Fabrics just down across the border in Washington state. She packaged up my order so carefully and thoughtfully included a little birthday present for me! I'm still a little puzzled about what it actually is (a needle wallet? a regular wallet?), but the thought was definitely appreciated.
Update (July 17/10): I just heard from Kathy, "Yes, the Sweetwater wallet is a needle case. The elastic loops are for holding thread spools. An on-the-go carrier for thread and needle." Mystery solved!
Of course, I had to make sure the envelope was full (I was just being efficient!), so I ordered some great Kona colours, a little of Denyse Schmidt's Hope Valley, a Single Girl quilt pattern, and a charm pack of Kona brights for Sophie to play with. Kathy's service, packaging and attention to detail was impeccable and I know I'll be shopping Pink Chalk Fabrics again! (she just got in Robert Kaufman's Pure Organic collection of 15 organic cotton solids!) Are you a fan of Kona cottons? Do you have your own colour card?
