RAK #2 - Received! and Smalls SAL for April

Oh, this is so exciting - My second RAK has been received by the lovely Rosey of Ishkabibble Blog. (Isn't that the cutest name for a blog)??

I sent Rosey these little wooden blocks. They are from Shepherd's Bush and are stitched on perforated paper. It's been years since I've worked with perforated paper - I'd forgotten how much fun it is. The blocks are probably 1.5 inches square.....but Rosey will have to verify that, as I didn't measure them before packing them up for their journey. I'm going to claim this as my Smalls SAL for April - hosted by Heather at The Stitching Lotus.


Also included were some fabrics and flosses and a Stoney Creek pattern....notice the "home" theme?


Three RAKs are floating around the globe....I can hardly wait to hear from the party-goers their parcels have arrived so I can share!

OK - four more RAKs are completed and ready to be packed up.....just realized I need more padded envelopes.....looks like they will go out next week.

OH! and another thing - I'll be sharing my adventure in Singapore with Peranakan beading in my next post.

  14. How sweet. I have even actually tried stitching on perforated paper, although I do have a Mill Hill Christmas kit on paper sitting in my stash. x

  15. I have never played with perforated paper - always been afraid it would rip. I have some in my stash - somewhere - so I might just haul it out and give it a try. Wonderful RAK - I'm sure your friend was pretty happy when her mailman arrived!

  19. Those little blocks are so cute and I've never heard about working with perforated paper before, I shall have to find out more about that. I do like the Home theme that you carried through the gifts, Rosey must be thrilled to bits with everything she received. It must be exciting for you seeing the RAKs winging their way around the world.
