I thought I was going to have a hard time finding fabric like that.  Turns out there's a manufacturer in my very own state that makes all kind of religious prints (I can get all sorts of "Last Supper" and angel prints too!)

So glad you like it sophieangele!

I completely agree! My package is FAB!! My pictures are not at all as good. THere is something wierd about the colors. The tartan is soooo soft and lovely. And the colors are so much more beautitful in real life.  I've been VERY good & haven't eaten the crunchies yet... (so unlike me...) but I'm saving them so they aren't gone.... just like that... Smiley. The poor little buttons are lost in the picture so take a look above... they are so nice!  Oh, and can you see the lovely hand written letter explaining each item and a hand written vocab list to explain the comics! Smiley

Here is my FAB package! I love every single thing!! THANK YOU SO MUCH Elaine!!!! You are too generous!

EDIT: I'm so sorry. I seem to have lost my picture!! I made a big boo-boo on Flickr!! I will fix this as soon as I can.
