So many emails and comments are waiting to be replied. Slow and sure I'll write back to you. I feel like I'm having a jet lag. Maybe it's just because I sat in a bus for five hours just the other day. My brain is still in motion.
I got some lovely things in the mail yesterday I absolutely need to share with you. So this blog entry is about lovely people with lovely talents!
Jesse sent me a piece of her beautiful block printed fabric. I must say that I like her more and more every day! Communicating with people from the other side of the world can be extremely inspirational. During the couple of months of blogging I've had the wonderful opportunity to "meet" like minded people who have really affected the way I think of myself and of my creations. Jesse was probably the first one to read my blog, and knowing that she keeps reading it means a lot to me. It's always exciting to go see what she's blogged about; you never know if it's block printing, knitting, comics or something completely different - every time it's something fascinating.
And then there was the Beuys bunny. I never imagined that buying could be so much fun! I bought this from daskaninchen, meaning to give it to my husband as a birthday present. His birthday is on the 20th, but I got too excited to keep this a secret. Above picture can help you understand my excitement. In addition to the bunny I got a Fibonacci number brooch and a daskaninchen button/badge as a thank you from featuring the beuys bunny in one of my Etsy front page treasuries. I'm hardly ever as excited about someone's Etsy shop as I am now. Daskaninchen has so many beautiful AND interesting things, that I think you all should go there and buy her shop empty! I had lovely time communicating with Shannah over my order. The whole transaction was far beyond my high expectations! It was so heartwarming that she wrote thank you so much in Finnish to me. It's all in the details.
And I love the bunny too. I was promised that I can borrow it every once in a while.
Remember this? This one didn't arrive in the mail. Here's what my mom made for me for Christmas! She even made the Saab I liked even though she said she'd leave that out! This little quilt is embellished with beads and it's about 14.6"x13.8" (37x35cm). My mom is much better with the sewing machine than me. Well, maybe she's just been able to practice a lot longer :)
