Boldly going where others have probably been.

That mustache cover is awesome!  And I love the combination of bright florals against the black.

I received from unsuperb last week. Wednesday evening was the first chance I got to look in my mail box though I think it arrived Monday. I felt too guilty to open it though since mine still hasn't gone out. She told me to go ahead and open it... and OMG!!! It's all totally amazing.

First, she wrapped it in a scarf she got in Israel. It's beautiful. I will definitely wear it (and keep my cat away). (me wearing it... PLUS... it's the first decent pic I've had of myself in YEARS. in my opinion)

The cover is a reverse appliqued cat with a heart in the corner and gold fabric paint outlines.

For extras... she painted an absolutely gorgeous white/light tortie cat with a swirly blue background. And i'm thinking it's the perfect size to either hang on a small wall space... or if my next job gives me a desk, I could use it as a desk "photo". Smiley

She also sent some gourmet chocolates. Lavender blueberry and roseberry (raspberry & rosehips), and a handful of bite size chocolate truffles.  

I just noticed she did a hand-sewn button-hole stitch along the top and bottom of the cover rather than machine sewing. I wouldn't have thought of that! I used my machine to fight through the layers.

I will edit to add pics tomorrow after I borrow my neighbor's camera cord.

Sassy, playing in her new box (she backed out of it right as I took the pic)

Unsuperb: I just realized... you used Sassy's pic from the Monstar  swap as your inspiration for the painting, didn't you? I forgot those were there Smiley I kept wondering "How'd she know I have a tortie?"

Sounds awesome! Can't wait to see it!

Update: Thanks for the pictures-- now I can see that unsuperb's package really IS awesome! I love that cat journal cover!

I also love your picture, Eclectic! You have a Mona Lisa smile going on there!

I just realized Craftymamabee lined my cover with felt. I was wondering what gave it that oh so subtle cushion...So lux!
