Who doesn't like to get real mail...you know, the type that gets delivered into your letterbox? :)
A cherished American friend of mine had a letterbox like this at the end of her driveway...the ones where a little flag pops up after the postie has been :) When I was going to school (cough cough...quite a while back now) I would catch the school bus to her house so that she could tutor me in "math". She would bake me choc chip brownies, show me her latest fabric purchases from the States (which would always make my eyes widen and my jaw drop!) , share her love of anything Royal Doulton, and generally spoil me rotten :)
The idea for this block came from yesterdays homework...I was telling the kids about my "math" tutor, and my mind wandered to her very American letterbox. I really love how this project is making me remember happy things :)
Thank you so much for all your lovely comments and feedback about the buttons. I still haven't made a decision...so I guess that block in the top row of my sampler will stay empty for a while yet.
P.S. That crooked stitch in the bottom left corner was bugging me...LOL...but a little nudge with my fingernail straightened it out! Remember, these are one inch squares...magnification can be harsh!!!!
