Mail art from Roben-Marie!

I was super touched when I came home to this incredible mail art package today from Roben-Marie. I’m always amazed at people who really listen and then give you the perfect gift. Inside this beautiful envelope were three large spools of variegated thread. I met Roben-Marie at An Artful Journey in February in DJ Pettitt’s Mixed-Medley class. One of the things she shared with me was her free-motion sewing foot and she had this incredible thread that I knew I had to have. Thank you Roben-Marie! You’re incredible!

Below is a signature from my book that has my free-motion attempt. It was really fun and I could see the potential of actually sewing letters.  Looking forward to using my new variegated thread… will post more photos of the my book soon. For a sneak peak of some pages visit my flickr.

  1. Hey, Leah!

    Thanks so much for your kind words!! You are so sweet! I wish we lived nearer one another so we could have some art time together! Your signature is beautiful and I recognize that piece of ivory fabric with the “free” stitching! 🙂

    Have fun with your thread and I look forward to seeing more of your work!!!

    RM 🙂

    1. Ahh Roben-Marie,

      Thanks! I love the idea of art time together. I’ve got an idea… we could figure out something… an art time via mail could be fun. I’ll figure out a simple idea and we can mail back and forth. I’ll send you an idea in your package! 🙂
