that was always a favourite expression of my Grandmother's and it stuck with me...whenever I have lots of things happening in my sewing room it comes to mind
and there is lots going on these days - at least, there are lots of things started!
remember a few posts back - the evolution of an idea?
you were all so intrigued so I thought I should show you where I'm at now....
the inspiration fabric made me think of writing, which made me think of writing letters, which made me think of how I didn't write as many as I would have liked, which made me think of how I sent some postcards from France when we were there (but they don't really count as a letter), which made me think of the postcard graphic from the Graphics Fairy
which made me think of a set of stamps I bought from Etsy a long time ago that had a Paris postmark stamp and a cancelled one
which made me think of making postcards from Paris, which made me want to send some (but as I won't be back there for a long time, it makes that idea a wee bit difficult)
which made me think I could make some anyway, but what to do with them?,
which made me think wouldn't they be a fun invitation for my sale this year?

send me your address Suzy and I will mail it off to you!
and speaking of mail - I have three Wishing Stars left to finish and then I will be sending them out to all of you who gave me a word last year.
I'll be emailing you in the next few days to get your address info.
your words were all beautiful and stitching them gave me time to think about each one and what it means to me - I'd say it's a fair exchange.
and speaking of words, I have finally chosen my word for February... there couldn't be a word in the whole of the English language more appropriate for me right now than
