First, let me give you a little background story that will help explain why I am so excited about getting mail. When I was a little girl I LOVED Sesame Street. My mother says it was the best babysitter she ever had. It was on Sesame Street that I first discovered Russian nesting dolls. Here is the video:
Ever since I saw this on Sesame Street, I've loved nesting dolls. They come in so many shapes and sizes and styles. I'm just forever fascinated by them. For a while now, I've been seeing nesting doll quilt fabric on quilters' blogs but I never seem to be able to find it in my area. And it's really hard to find online.
Fast forward to today. In today's mail was a package from my Brown Bag Quilt Contest parter Julianna in Poland. And her package and it had this taped all over it!
How cute is that tape? If I had some that I'd use on everything...seriously! So anyway...when I see this, and I don't know why, but I sat there thinking to myself "Oooohhhh I hope there's nesting doll fabric inside." As hard as it is to find here I thought it would be a long shot. But guess what? There was! She sent me this...
I couldn't be more tickled about what she sent me! The dolls, the funky florals, and those owls...they're all so fantastic! I can't wait to start playing with them this weekend.
Thanks again Julianna!
