I don't think any photo of mine could do it justice, but here is a small pile of Lecien I got in the mail today... part of the old "Old New" Collection that I absolutely adore.
Thank you so much to those of you who helped me in my search. These are my favorites of what I've received so far and there's still more on the way. I love a good mail day. The rest of our day was uneventful ~ involving a trip to my favorite burger joint, a trip to the farmer's market, the post office, and a little bit of time spent in the sewing corner. I finished another set of ric rac cocktail napkins...
It's a colorful bunch. They're in the shop.
Well, I am headed down to San Diego to run a half-marathon ~ no longer a full marathon, as I've injured my knee and I know it just won't carry me 26.2 miles. 13.1 miles? No problem... I hope. I probably sound all nonchalant but really I'm heartbroken, as this is the second marathon I've signed up for and haven't been able to run this year. The first was the LA Marathon in March, when I was still recovering from pneumonia and bronchitis. Dang it. I have a goal to run one marathon each year and there are still 6 months left in this year... but. I don't know how my family puts up with me and all my "hobbies." They do it beautifully, though. Thank you family. I hope all you ladies are as well supported in your endeavors, too...
Cheers! xo amy
