It was a good mail day!

Look at what I got in the mail today! I had ordered the pattern and kit for Libby's Kentucky Wildflower she made from Primitives of the Midwest. And it came today! What surprised me was the size of the box. Why would a pattern and fabric for such a small wall hanging come in such a big box?

Well look what I found! They had it all packaged in this adorable wall basket! And tied with a fun ribbon and flowers! I was afraid to open it! But of course I did because I wanted to touch the fabrics!

Now my only problem is finding time to make it. I never have done well with needle turn, but I just might try it on this since there are not so many pieces and because I can make it look primitive. We will see! I really would love to learn how to do it better, so I'm thinking this might be a good thing to practice on.

Sorry Betty - I know you live in KY, but this one is for me!
