Keeping me in stitches

A little while ago a package arrived at my house. The doorbell rang and I had to sign for a somewhat misshapen box covered in brown paper. I have been remiss in not thanking the sender and sharing all the treasures I found within. Fabienne Rey you are a peach! Frankly, I was struck speechless at first, so forgive my silence on this extraordinary gift. 

Actually there were several gifts, each one separately wrapped in brown tissue and tied with striped string accompanied by labels. On top were some cards and eco printed papers for Elizabeth Adams-Marks and I to share along with a gift of a precious blue pod for Elizabeth that she posted about on her FB page. Underneath those items were several more packages. The first one was filled with doilies.  

Ms. Rey gifted me some fabulous doilies some time ago and this box contained several new ones which I laid out on my glass topped coffee table to photograph (that's not a blue doily, it's a book on the shelf below). Below are some closeups. Perhaps I should take the time to pin them to my black board to get better pictures. 

Underneath the doilies was a package that contained two eco printed flags--one for Elizabeth and one for me. The flags are from Dharma. Once upon a time we toyed with the idea of displaying flags outside the gallery while the From the Inside Out exhibition was up, but couldn't figure out a way to secure them from theft. Mine is made of nylon fabric and it appears to have taken the eco printing well. I think I'll fly it by my outdoor studio this year.   

And then I opened the package at the bottom of the box with a tiny label that said "To Ms. Patsy who keeps me in stitches" and I couldn't see clearly for the tears. Speechless!
