Readers, I’m telling you, I'm a lucky lady.
First of all, earlier last week, the mail brought me a package from the USA.
“A package from the United States?”
Yes, from the United States. From none other than Natasha of Natty Jane Sews, of course, because she had participated in the Pay it Forward project a few months back!
Here are all the wonderful handmade pretty things lucky me has received. I noticed everything is perfectly crafted, down to the most minute detail -- this is very "Natty Jane"!
|See! A match made in heaven|
My favourite part of her care package was without a doubt reading her grandmother’s stories. She moved to Hull UK when she was around my age and I could easily imagine her riding her bicycle to the school where she taught. How difficult and crazy it must have been to go through the war and the bombings… What an interesting lady, and what an interesting life! Natty Jane, I think you could write a whole book about your grandmother’s life and many people would buy it – I know I’d certainly be the first one in line!
Thank you Natasha for such a thoughtful gift!
Now moving on to the second reason why I’m a lucky lady, readers…
Ta-daaaah! Proud owner of Alfa Next 30.
Seeing that I was becoming pretty miserable without my sewing machine, my mom and my boyfriend conspired to buy me this pink and white wonder! It’s a Spanish brand and it’s pretty extravagant considering I’ll be using it only 6 months, but it feels very strong and sturdy, which is very good. I know I can count on you, Alfa Next 30!
Thank you mom! Thank you Olivier!
And now, let the sewing begin!
Next post, some pictures of my life here in the beautiful city of Granada.
