A Package Arrives!

For grown ups when the mail arrives it's about getting another bill but for kids getting mail is so much fun. The possibilities are endless. . . . a party invitation, a new magazine or even better something bigger. Case in point Nature Girl received a package today. I signed up for the the Elsie Marley mobile swap. I created a mobile for a woman in NY and Nature Girl received this beautiful mobile from Lady of Perpetual Chaos. She was thrilled with the package, even more excited by the Strawberry Shortcake wrapping paper and literally jumping for joy when she saw the mobile. Really it is beautiful! Our new found friend also sent along some quilting patterns for me to try. I can't wait to try the Christmas wish quilt. Thanks!

The mobile is a sea theme complete with sun, waves, a starfish, a shell and a mermaid holing a pearl. It's perfect for my little nature lover! Now we need to get it hung up in her room.

Coincidentally I finally finished a mobile for the baby next door. It's part of her Easter gift and goes with the bug theme in her nursery. Yes I know it's two days after Easter but we've delayed exchanging our Easter goodies due to the busy weekend and now illness. Hopefully everyone will be feeling better soon. By the way the inspiration for these whimsical felt butterflies came from Maos Arteiras Feltro set on flickr

I'm so glad she like her mobile. It's always wonderful to get something good in the mail. That butterfly mobile is adorable!
