The UPS Man Cometh Bearing Beautiful Gifts

On Wednesday afternoon the doorbell rang. It was one of our favorite people. The UPS Man! To my surprise, this time he came ringing for me bearing beautiful gifts from generous Ms. Marji. This was such bountiful gift and I love every piece of it. Thank you Ms. Marji! You are an angel.

In Marji's letter she mentions making garments for my DD Career wardrobe. Well, DD may get one or two things from the fabric, but I'll be the benefactor of most of it. ;-)

Acquiring more reference books is on my list of goals for 2010. I started reading the Easy Guide to Sewing Jackets. Lots of good stuff in it. Over the weekend I'll take a serious look at the tailoring book.

Thanks again, Marji. This is such a lovely and thoughtful gift, and I really appreciate your precious gift.

Next Post - Reviews of DD Fall 2009/Winder 2010 Career Wardrobe. Here's a preview:

Happy Sewing!


  1. Ohhhh, I've gotten one of those boxes so I know you must be in fabric heaven! Marji has exquisite taste and it shows! It will be fun to see what you dream up with such luscious lovelies!

  2. I need to get better friends! ;)

    Your daughter looks great. She must be one of the best-dressed at her office. Looking forward to more pics!

  3. You're welcome! And I'm very happy to hear that you'll make some things for yourself.
    Now, what you fail to mention in this blog post is your own generosity. You've been just lovely over the last several years following up on finding those Cadena magazines and last time you sent me one you sent it as a gift. I really appreciated that.

    Happy sewing!

  4. What beautiful fabric. Loving your DD's career clothing.

  5. What a great package of goodies! Your daughter looks fabulous in her career get-up.

  6. Lucky you! Your daughter looks so professional and stylish. Can't wait to see the whole wardrobe.

  7. Oooo! You got lots of goodies. How sweet of Marji. The suits looks so beautiful on your daughter, but she's got that perfect build so everything looks good on her.

  8. The UPS man is one of my favorite people also - I am on a first name basis with him!!
    What a wonderful package!
    Your DD is a very lucky young lady. You are making beautiful pieces for a lovely lady!

  9. I'm drooling over that houndstooth! So fun to receive a box of fabric in the mail. :)

  10. Happy New Year!

    Wow! Your daughter looks great. Young women her age don't dress like that too often in my office. I want to pull some of them to the side and tell them their clothes are too tight or too short. I'm really impressed by her style! Mom you did her proud.

    I was given that book on making Jackets and it is wonderful, you will love it.
