Elevation and site plan of the Santa Maria Novella in Florence, Italy.
The latest round of The Elevated Envelope went out last month, and I have since received 3 great envelopes from around the world.
The theme was sweet and I received this super cute envelope from Freya in California. Freya blogs at here and pretty much everything she produces is super cute, I especially love her bunny stamp. Her blog is chock full of inspiring mail and packages. We should all send more mail!
The second envelope I received is from Emma in the UK. She made this entire envelope from sewing together cupcake papers. Brilliant! Emma is a jewelry designer and she has the most amazing floral inspired jewelry.
The last envelope came from Elena in Canada, probably my favorite yet! Her envelope is beautiful in its simplicity. Check out that beautiful handwriting and those stamps. Stamps from other countries always seem so exotic. The envelope was made extra fancy by the use of a wax stamp. Receiving it made me feel like I was a character in a Jane Austin novel. Inside were a few things that constitute Elena’s sweet summer. So perfect.
Making friends through the mail is the best.
This is the strip quilt made from those previously posted fabrics. We took at trip over to The Winspear Opera House for a fun photo shoot. Strip quilts are fast becoming my favorite. I especially like the combination of wide patterned strips with skinny bright solids.
I think it turned out great, the fabrics my friend Jennifer picked out really worked well together. The perfect quilt for a new baby girl!
I added a little something special on the back.
