Tuesday was a very hot day. I had the worst night's sleep possibly ever because our un-airconditioned home was unbearable. Wednesday I managed to make it through the work day as a semi-zombie. After work, I took a 2 hour nap and still managed to fall soundly asleep at my normal bedtime, so this setup is all to help define my mental state at the time i got home. When I walked in the door I had a package from crazyquiltgirl fabrics waiting for me.
now, i had ordered from this shop in the past but it's been awhile. I opened the package, found these 3 charm packs, and I started staring at the invoice. Yep, it's my name and address. It doesn't appear to have been a mistake. Could I have ordered this and completely forgotten about it? it didn't seem entirely out of the question that i might buy fabric and not remember it. I pondered for a moment on that possibility.
Then it hit me. Hey, that's not my email address! So I'm not crazy. it was a mistake! Wait...that's my brother's email address. ohhhhhhh, it all makes sense now.
the sad part is that my brother even emailed me in advance to tell me that my birthday gift was on its way. i'm sure that he's proud in that big brother sense that he momentarily caused me to question my sanity. at any rate, i absolutely love this gift. I think i'm going to use the Half Moon Modern pack to make a new sewing machine cover, the farmer's market will be made into something for Farmer Spicy, and Lucy's Crab Shack is just so adorable that I will have to stew awhile to find something appropriate (though some of them may get added into the Polaroid stack). So thanks for the birthday gift, ya jerk! i love it.
