I vaguely remember hearing Pam discussing sending off 9 pounds of fabric to someone but when you quilt much of the time do you have any idea how EFFORTLESS it would be to box up 9 pounds of fabric? I could do it in my sleep.
And probably SHOULD.
Anyhoo, yes. A vague recollection. Well then she tells me that this fabric sending thing was actually a swap. And that I'll be the recipient of said swap. Huh??? Well yesterday I was presented with this pig. She is pure piggy perfection! I mean look at those ears! And I do believe she's a Hampshire...I LOVE pigs. Which baffles Pam, but don't worry, it's a story for another time.
Turns out this pig (which will have a name by the end of the day--and I do have a Suggestion Box now, so any help in this matter would be appreciated) came from an incredibly talented person named Laurie who can be found here. If you don't know about her, you must check out her amazing wool felt skills. Because she does more than make pigs--as if that wouldn't be enough.
It's always a super special gift to receive something someone MADE, isn't it?
And what could express the beauty of these sunny, soon-to-be-Spring days better than a pig?
