'Tis a lucky gal, that I am

Yes indeedy, one very lucky gal indeed!! Have a lookity look at what appeared in my letter box this week. The lovely Monique from Monique's Mess gifted me with these gorgeous fabric panels that she designed and hand printed.


Aren't they lovely!! Love, love, love the hue blue!! 'Tis my favourite colour.



When one visits Monique's lovely blog, one realises from her banner with snapshots of her gorgeous innovative prints and the creative projects that she fashions from them, that here is a unique and clever designer!!

Mere mortals such as I, when embarking on a stitching project, either visit a shop to purchase fabrics needed, or in my case, more often than not, upcycle some gorgeous vintage textile unearthed in an op shop or at a market; but, Monique seems to 'simply' capture photos of nature and transposes them from her creative mind into a design, manufactures a stamp and begins to play with the stamp which seems to magically end up as a gorgeous length of fabric filled with colour, design and pattern. Just have a bo-peep at the cute-as-cute frilly, baby rompers that Monique stitched from her original geranium leaf fabric. So, so visionary!!

My eyes can't seem to stop gazing at these lovely prints. I will have to clear out the labrynth of cobwebs from my brain pan and dream up some lovely creation/s worthy of these "one-of-a-kind" fabrics. These original fabrics demand nothing less.
 
 So...thank you Monique for gifting me these lovely fabrics; 'happy mail' to some, but to me, something much more. Walking on air kinda mail, or perhaps, feeling on cloud nine kinda mail. However one might classify this mail, all I know is that, this particular delivery from Her Royal Majesty's postal delivery representative, has left me feeling kinda chirpy and gratified!!

  2. Thanks kim you are very generous as always with your praise but I know they went to a good and creative home. Love the look out over the back yard ..all that green at the tail end of summer. I am glad they arrived at an opportune time with the departure of loved ones. Sorry I diidnt make it more like a present but was in a hurry to get them to the post office before the urge/impetus to do so wore off :)
