hi there!
don't you just love that feeling of
i had just got home,
the groceries still in the boot of the car
there was the postie
with a parcel in her hand,
looking worried as
kara hooted around the front yard
doing her best to be a guard dog.
i relieved her of her parcel
scooted inside,
arms weighed down with bags
the precious parcel... 
flung down my bag,
tossed down the new mag
the parcel.
shoved the groceries away!
made a cup of tea
examined my parcel...
a little bit retro...
a little bit modern...
a little bit british...
a little bit amy butler!
now i have new mag,
aspiration..i'm planning to sew
as long as i don't expire from
i'll soon have plenty to show and tell!
naturally Carol xox


  1. Nothing beats a parcel - especially one containing fabric! Looking forward to seeing what you make with it all (especially the top one!).

  2. Ooh the little bit we can see, looks very interesting Carol! Is that 'scooter' fabric I see????

  3. How lovely! glad you have some inspiration and look forward to seeing the results!

  4. Hi carol,
    wowo...i love the design of the fabric..

    enjoy your sewing..

  5. What a great moment. A cup of tea, an unexplored mag and a parcel full of potential! I'm looking forward to seeing what you make with all that lovely fabric. love Jillxx

  6. Love this post Carol. Must admit I still get excited when I see a parcel or special envelope waiting for me when I get home. So fresh and new and as you say, full of inspiration. Lovely! Can't wait to see what you create with those great fabrics xo

  7. I love a parcel too, the post office staff tease me about my regular visits, I'm a
    big online shopper
