In a week or so, a dear friend and crafty Momma will be moving to a far, far away land. By far away I mean FAR away – much farther than is negotiable in a “hey, let’s go visit!” kinda way. She and her family have been methodically getting rid of almost everything in their home, leaving just what they can easily travel with to their new home.

Sadness doesn’t begin to explain my feelings at this move, she is a crafter, a sewer and one of the few friends who really *got* my love of making stuff.  In the process of gutting a household she gifted me a stash of fabric – a lovely, wonderful stash of flannels and cottons and brocades.

Sadness and joy – sadness of losing my friend to distance and joy at a wonderful stash of fabric. I cannot wait to make something with it to send to her, something to make her new home a little cozier, a little warmer and feel a little bit more like home.

So today, I have no photos for you. I have not had a chance to process it all and will get one to you all in the near future.

Bittersweet, I tell you.
