A beary special gift

My little patchwork bear, Lady Carlyle, says “Konichiwa” (translated: hello) to you on this Monday morning!

You see, she officially joined our household during a snowy afternoon in December last year. She had come with a package packed with other goodies from Japan. Can you see the snow pelting down outside the window?

LC is handmade by a very gracious lady Mrs. M from Japan who is a hand quilter. Her sweet daughter had stayed with us for three weeks as an exchange student last August. We were honored to host Kumiko as a guest in our home, and I was definitely honored to receive LC as a gift from Mrs. M. LC is named after my Lady Carlyle dishes (how original eh?). You see, LC has taken such a liking to the Lady Carlyle pieces, so what can I say? I would also be remiss not to mention to you that LC hosts some mean tea parties too!

LC thinks she is the queen of my 3-tier server:

Mrs. M and I have sent each other quilting-related things from time to time even though we have never met or spoken with each other. It is a unique friendship I share with Mrs. M because of our love of sewing and quilting. I hope one day I would get to meet this wonderful lady in person.

Mrs. M is one many women that have become special to me in my sewing world. I look forward to sharing with you the other sewing friends I have met and come to love over the last couple of years.

Thanks for such a special gift, Mrs. M! Have a “beary” wonderful week, everyone! And Happy Crafting!!

p.s. A very beary Happy Birthday to my sister!

  1. thanks!!!!!!! :) hehehe.. i actually found all the birthday cards you sent me 12 years ago!!! :)) hahahahahah….

  2. The bear is wonderful and I too love looking at that wonderful pattern and shapes on the Lady Carlyle dishes! I like saying that name…Lady Carlyle. I was at a flea market yesterday scouting out the dishes and looking for tea strainers. I saw a couple but they wanted too much money. I’m still on the hunt. I’ll show the goodies I did come away with later this week. Blessings and I’m glad the Goluptsi turned out good.

  3. I love all your dishes, Wendy, but must say these pink ones are my absolute favorite, and the three tier piece, well, I must say I am coveting it!! What is it’s history? Also, in my world of three grandsons and a messy husband my soul is calling out for a place for very girly things and these pieces certainly fill that calling…with a tea party of course! Have a great day!

  4. LC is just precious! Your friend did an amazing job creating him!…and I love the pink tea set, very pretty! Is it an old set? I just love it! :) ~Rhonda
