I posted a parcel, yesterday.I had some wrapping paper, but as I know my partner will be doing some 'interesting' block making shortly, I thought, I could give her an interesting trim, rather than just 'normal' parcel ribbon. so I tied her parcel, with this rainbow organza ribbon.
Now, you know what was inside,
There was this frame purse. And the little butterfly brooch which was attached on the outside. And, thank goodness, my partner seems to like the purse. Phew! As she hadn't commented I was rather nervous!
The instructions dictated that there had to be a little something for the inside. But I was not sure what. So my initial thought was 'machine needles'. As a sewer, these have to be useful, and welcomed. So a couple of packs lurked inside the purse. But I had a thought about a little something, which I really really wanted to make. But I needed an excuse. Sorry, Partner, you were my excuse. So I made this,
Oh, I forgot, you can't see through the wrapper. And yes there are some other ribbons there for her to use, Because they are pretty!
Now, I said at the time this was for someone special, so here it is again,
My daughter does occasional swaps of what are called, 'Crappy Day presents'
And I thought, this lovely lady has had one or two less than wonderful days lately, so, let us try to put a smile on her face, So this fitted into the purse neatly.
And no 'Crappy Day present' is complete without chocolate- so a small amount of chocolate went into the parcel too!
And Then I made her a card. It is a dead simple card, and I made several at the same time- I forgot to take a photo of her one, but this is similar. Quick and fun, I think!
And I only posted yesterday, but she received it today! Yeay! and I am so glad she was my partner!
