I got totally spoiled by P_E_S_T and I love it all!


Picture of everything together, all on top of two lovely embroidered cloths. I will likely cut them up for my in-progress 1-inch hex quilt top. They will go very nicely with the lace and vintage fabrics from my great-grandmother's stash that I have put together already.


Felted, embroidered cuff that both I and baby love as well as wrapping ribbons.

This needlebook is so awesome and will fit my varied needle collection perfectly!

pincushion from upcycled egg cup, wooden leaf for my birdies to chew up


card, feathers, and handspun nettle yarn (LOVE the yarn especially!)

There was also fudge for the hubby, but I handed that over and haven't seen it since.

Thank you so, so much! I hope you enjoyed your bits and bobs as much I enjoyed getting this package!

Im so sorry its taken me so long to post my lovely package from Mangomarie. - but I have been in France Smiley
I opened my package and was instantly warmed by the homemade ness of it all. Theres something so lovely about the fullness of all the textures that just has me looking at all my little bits again and again.......

so - full shot..

Inside we find 2 hand dyed bits of cloth which I will so be incorporating into my latest prayer flags project.
A really curious nut shell (what an earth is it !!!( I love it, so does my eldest !) HAnd made soap, a little hand sewn patch of a fish - which again is so going on my prayer flag (unless the littlest pinches it), some lovely orange lace ribbon, an owl pin, and my needle book...........


The needle book is covered in a hand dyed cloth and the inside is shrunken wool (so approve of this because I do it to make blankets). Its a butterfly, which I just love because that's my spirit animal and also I have a huge butterfly tattoo on my back. Now - if truth be known, I don't think it will end up as a needle book, Im currently working on a huge patchwork blanket to go on my bed and I think this will just have to flutter on there Smiley

Yay! I wasn't quite sure you'd like it all, to be honest. It felt kind of hodgepodge and I didn't have time to wrap anything, either. The fabrics and lace are all eco-dyed; one with oak leaves, one with onions, and the lace with annatto seeds. The shell is from a native tree here in Tennessee, USA called a black walnut. They usually have a lot of spiky, woody bits sticking out, but this one was tucked away by a squirrel and forgot about for a couple of years so it's been smoothed out some. (It also sprouted a tree!) I love collecting them and hoped you'd enjoy one.

I also forgot to say that the head on the butterfly is removable so you can store really big needles inside the body instead of the pages. It can just be glued in place instead so it can have another purpose if you like. Smiley

Ooh! Just thought. It might be really fun to write down affirmations or poetry and such onto paper to roll up and stick inside the body!
