Then, on Friday, I received a package from Smileyyogini:
Smileyyogini and I were partnered up last year, so I already knew she was going to be fun.
She made me a Day of the Dead mugrug with jewel tone patchwork, lace, and a hand embroidered calavera skull on the front. Beautiful rose print pocket and more lace on the back. She had me at the mugrug...and then I dug further into the package:
It's sideways, but it's a crocheted skulls with black roses and bows wallhanging. I've never seen anything like it before. I know right where I'm putting this. I almost walked away from the package to hang it up, but then found:
All these other fantastic goodies! A couple of calaveras printed on muslin so I can make my own embroidered beauties. And some glow in the dark Halloween stickers. You spoiled me rotten, Smileyyogini. Thank you, thank you.
