Thank you Iris

One of the few surprising pleasures of blogging is how incredibly interactive it can be. 2 days ago I received this delightful package in the mail from Iris. We had organised to do a craft swap. I sewed something for her for 2 hours, and she made some things for me: these Artist trading cards, now housed happily on my new sewing notice board. Everything is nicely packaged up and there was a lovely little card filled with thoughtful and appreciative comments. Sigh. it was a beautiful moment discovering them all.

My favourites are shown above, the fabric and hand sewn one, simply because it is fabric and hand sewn, and the one made from a book withdrawn from her library, because she blogged about it, and there I was holding something in my hand that I had seen on a blog! It could only have been more perfect if it had been a picture from this withdrawn book.

Also from Iris earlier in the week was a photo tag. It runs like this: take the 6th photo from your 6th folder and tag 6 people. 666 isn't that the devil's number? I think it might be a little unlucky to keep this tag as it is, but as the mistress of compromise here is my solution. My sixth photo from sixth folder is this one of Benjy, all freshly washed just after he was born. Now anyone out there reading this who would like to be tagged, consider yourself tagged!


  1. What wonderful cards, and what a sweeeeeet baby!

  2. Those cards are very lovely, I am going to frame my ATCs up I think...they are very nice en masse.
    And lovely photo of Benji too, of course.

  3. Awww... brings back very pleasant memories.

  4. Oh no I can't believe you published this photo, don't you realise that you might be in big trouble for taking home a baby who was labelled "hospital property"?!?

  5. An impressive share! I've just forwarded this onto a friend who had been conducting a little homework on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast because I discovered it for him... lol. So let me reword this.... Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to talk about this matter here on your blog.
