Received from Barbara St. Jacques

Yesterday my mailman delivered a package from Barbara in Ludlow, USA, that was covered on the outside with the stamped message "Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life" (Picasso). That certainly proved true of Barbara's sea-themed carton and its contents.

The first item I drew from the box was a deep purple cloth decorated with silver butterflies. Unfortunately, the photo only offers a hint of them. Then emerged a box of beads, a beautifully made mini journal, stickers, magnets, felt embellishments, and the most wonderful pair of tiny, hand sewn and embroidered felt shoes I've ever held in my hands.

Thank you very much indeed, Barbara!
