BigBangMomma sent me a wonderful package. Gave me a boost just when I needed some strength and courage.

First is a lovely, wood burned and painted frame with a perfect quote. YEAH!



Then a little wood burned banner. I do love to resist and I do love woodburning. It's hanging on my oh-so-60's stair railing.



But wait, there's more. A lovely nature, camping, love, soccer, outdoors prayer flag. Look at those fabrics.



And.....two woodburned pins for my protest apron. It's a black apron with hand painted fabric signs, easy to carry (I just wear it), easy to customize.



I'm feelin' it right now! Thank you so much.

I love the way you hung them on the line to photograph. They look lovely in the breeze! That mini quilt was my first, designed by me, paper pieced pattern. Learned a lot!

I'm glad the rain stopped enough so I could! I love my clothesline!

I just did a big laundry day(s) drying outside because our dryer went belly up. I love line dried sheets! Except for our allergies, sigh, I would do it more often. Jeans though, can be a bit stiff and sometimes stand up by themselves. Good news, the new ones arrived today (replaced both aging units). Hope these hold up.

Jeans and towels, sadly, are always in the dryer. Had to run the dryer today, because of the rain. I love the smell of line dried sheets. But, yes, I am allergic to all the grasses and trees in my rural backyard...so much so, I've been taking allergy shots. I'm not sure if it's working, but we'll see.

My partner shipped and I received several days ago but life got crazy.  My father had a medical emergency which luckily turned into a minor tempest in a teacup sort of thing but took me out of town unexpectedly.  Now I'm back and have finally opened my package.  I was totally spoiled!!

Here's a photo of it all:


Thimbles71 made me some awesome pouches to help me in my endless quest to organize:
a Ruth Bader Ginsberg pouch with this quote on the other side

and a sweet "impale the patriarchy" one

inside I found some cute figures of Hilary and Michelle and fabulous magnets!

But Thimbles71 didn't stop there!  She made me not one, but two gorgeous mini quilts!!!
first the Michelle Obama one

the quote says "Courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of it's own."  So uplifiting!

and a beautiful Power to the Women mini quilt.  I love this symbol!


Most of the magnet are going to work with me where they can help "corrupt" young minds at the university I work in.  Perhaps one of the mini quilts would look good by my desk too! 

Now to feverishly finish crafting my own package and hopefully get it in the mail on time!!  I think I can!  I think I can!

Thank you so much Thimbles71!!!!!!!  I apologize for the delay but your package was a wonderful surprise after a busy long weekend!!!  You brought smiles and delight to a rather tired woman and left me feeling so good about our community of enlightened and crafty women!!!
