I'm In Love....

Today I cried... just a little...

It has been a fairly stressful day here. A misunderstanding regarding the publication of one of my designs has to be ironed out.... not the end of the world, but one of those pesky things that you'd rather just not deal with. Daughter came home from college for the weekend, so I whisked her out to the local diner for a late lunch (the perfect excuse to just get away, even for just a little while...)

When we got home, I checked the mail, and there was a fat envelope. It was from The Gentle Art, makers of delicious hand dyed threads. It was completely unexpected, as I had totally forgotten about my request......

Inside the envelope, their ENTIRE line of gorgeous fabulous threads.... all 161 of them....

I cried, just a little. I jumped up and down. I danced. I sighed. I cried a little more. Daughter thought I was a little unbalanced, but seemed to be pleased that I was pleased...
Colors like Mistletoe, Willow, Dried Thyme, Sea Spray.....

Buckeye Scarlet, Clover, Poppy, Raspberry Parfait....
In the words of Buddy the Elf,
"I'm in love, I'm in love and I don't care who knows it!"

Happy Valentine's Day!

Post Script- Lest anyone accuse me of not having my priorities in order, I am also in love, in love, in love with my dear husband of 19 1/2 years.... and my 2 great kids.... and a dog named Daisy.... and a cat named Maddie....

    I do hope the misunderstanding gets ironed out fast...
    I'm thrilled to see the beautiful threads you got-they are amazing!

  5. So sorry about the misunderstanding, the tears and then the joy of lunch and the package just made you bubble, right?!! I love those threads, I will have to check out the link. They are gorgeous!
