Eireann is so very sweet. Look at this, will you? It arrived last week out of the blue, and so I presumed when I pulled it rather unexcitedly from the mailbox, that it was the Mary Martin Peter Pan video I had ordered. Can you imagine my excitement when I discovered that it was this? This amazing package of lovely, yummy, sweet old vintage quilt circle hexagons (I know there must be a better name, but it escapes me). I'm SO thrilled, and so pleased, and so grateful!
I haven't decided exactly what these beauties shall become. The mix of colors make me so happy. She sent them along in response to this post, when I referenced the japanese patchwork book Li sent me, and mentioned wanting to make a similar handbag. But it gives me a bit of anxiety to split them up, or even worse, cut them up, for you know, something as temporary as a bag. I mean they've managed to survive this long in the world already, I feel under some obligation (of the good kind of obligation) to put them into a quilt somehow. You know, to finish the job, so to speak. I'm still deciding. What do you think - quilt? handbag? Something else?
Thank you so much Eiereann!!
