It was an exciting weekend of mail at casa Africankelli.

First came a surprise from Lyn of Mollychicken. She sent me stenciled squares of fabric, an awesome crocheted creature and a tiny bag of tiny ribbons. I am thrilled!

I plan on adding these to the next batch of wristlets. They are so sweet! I’m not sure how she stenciled these — perhaps Grocco?

Paco, my new traveling companion, from Lyn

And meet Paco, my new traveling companion. Lyn’s daughter Molly is very interested in world affairs. As I travel this summer for work, I plan on bringing Paco along and photographing his adventures. Molly will be receiving updates as we conquer Central and South America.

Catrina, of Bumblefunck emailed me last week. As if redesigning her site wasn’t enough, she’d also made time to put together some incredible craft packages. She’s cleaning out some of her fabric stash and sent me a very generous portion.

Holy moley. This was so fun to go through and imagine how I am going to put this stash to use.

My favorite was certainly this dainty white eyelet fabric. I just love it.

Thank you Lyn and Catrina! You made my day!
