Ma recently shared Sassy's newish color Snickerdoodle on her blog . It looked nice and prim but monitors can be deceiving, so I asked her how it compared to Sassy's Golden Promise. Ma was so helpful and patient, she even offered to mail me a scrap ~ YAY! You know, a snippet from being trimmed, just so I could get a first hand look at the color before ordering from Sassy's. What stitcher would have turned down Ma's sweet offer? Not I!
So this afternoon my plan was to slather on the butt glue and hit the stitchy chair, but then I got called out unexpectedly.
When I arrived home tonight, I found this at the door...
What the heck? A box? Who sent me a box? It was Ma. For a snippet? I'm a shaker, so natch ~ I shook it, something rattled, then I got that *confused in the brain* sensation and that blasted crater wrinkle between the baby blues. You know, the one that grows deeper with age, at least mine does:)
Opened it and found this...
Can you believe it? Not a snippet, but a beautiful piece of Sassy's Monoco 28 ct evenweave in Snickerdoodle (superb prim mottling), delicate counting pins (pretty pretty), a perfectly prim pincushion (my fave drab colors), happy Jack-O-Peeps (hiding them), and a note from sweet Ma!
I've seen Monoco online but never handled it. Snickerdoodle is a nice prim shade, I now know why Ma favors it, will definitely be ordering this ~ love it. Of course, I already have something in mind for this fabby, can not wait to get started!
Ma, your teakettle runneth over, you're too kind and too sweet and I thank you from my surprised stitchy heart, you really got me good! Oh, the Peeps... half gone now, well a little more than half gone, guess I'll hide the rest... or not:)
