Stuff that makes my heart sing

When I went to the post box yesterday there was this bulging parcel waiting for me from Paula.
She had notified me to say she had sent me a parcel --a sort of belated birthday present.
Not much she said and if I couldn't use all of it I could give some to Ebony.
It's a wonder you didn't hear me shriek wherever you are because I sure made a noise.
I couldn't believe my eyes---------------
All these lovely Sari silks--such yummy Autumn colours.






More silks......................



What about these fibers


And laces...................


More lace-black and navy...............





Beads..........................




More silks.................





Now I know I am a good Grandmother but if anyone thinks that I am giving any of this to Ebony well they can think again.
Thank you Paula for such a wonderful gift and I will put it all to good use.
I can hear my embellisher calling out to me--"come show me what you got"

glad you liked it! Im sort of thinking it might have been good if Id ironed it first.... that rose lace is an off cut from my wedding dress. and blue/green/purple habotai is the handpainted stuff i did - so it may not be colour fast. I hope i managed to include some of the silk chiffon scarves (i was in a bit of a flap at the PO - 6 parcels to mail out) i thought they would be perfect for the embellisher. Have fun!

That's a wonderful gift. Your granddaughter gets what's left when you finally leave this earth. That's what I tell my kids and grandkids.
