My little patchwork bear, Lady Carlyle, says “” (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!
