Romeo loved Juliet, Juliet she felt the same






Firstly THANK YOU, thank you for all your gentle words and reassurances. I have been much comforted in the knowledge that all mothers seem to stand on a bed of shifting sand. I want to feel like a powerful force, a mother, a divine feminine goddess. So I have decided that the only way to acheive this higher level of exsistence is to hang out with other Mamas and eat cake, drink beer and chat for a while. Then it will be home for some sewing, some playing and some painting of nails. How does that sound? I am going to nurture myself for a while. Also the wedding venue we had booked (if you can call a registry office for half an hour a venue) is being closed next summer so I need to do some research into possible plan B's.
Anyway as well as all the lovely messages and the pleasure of perusing buffet menus I have also had the great heart warming pleasure of receiving a parcel from Run Mama Run. This swap about was organised by Trashy, who, for some unknown reason, I always manage to say something dumb infront of. I do have dippy tendencies but I grasped totally the wrong end of the stick with this swap and somehow managed to give Clara the task of making me a parcel based on; flip flops
, fruit, shrews and Venice. Really, don't ask!
I can't believe that Clara managed it! She really covered every angle, there was an art print a Venetian mask, flip flop frame and key ring, a flip flop patchwork pattern, fruity scented stickers and some simply gorgeous squares of batik fabric of 'Venetian' pattern. It was so cheering to get such fun treasure and I have already used some of the fabric for another project I'm working on. A big thank to Clara and Trashy. I will show next time what I sent to my partner, who gave me some much more sensible words, thank goodness, but I'm sure karma will get me back at some point! Meanwhile I shall continue with project goddess and knit whilst watching Brambly Hedge with the kids!

She had so much fun putting it together too.

Soooo happy your mask made it safely - shipping was really the only tricky part. I LOVED working with your "words". And you owe a debt of gratitude to Trashy who gently talked me out of sending the (real) Shrew jaw-bones I'd found listed on etsy! AND I owe a debt of gratitude to YOU because I now have my husband making Venetian masks for gifts we need to give :)
