I LOVE INDIGO!

A couple of weeks ago I asked Fawn in Whitehorse to look at a fur coat for me. I cut them up to trim out the booties I make for kids. Well lovely Indigo Sweetwater was reading and sent me a treat.

Today my husband picked up a rubbermaid from the greyhound sent by Indigo all the way from Kamloops. Inside, it was packed with fur coats!!!!! They are all perfect for what I do. There is hundreds (actually more I bet) of dollars worth of coats in there. There was even this beaver shawl thing that I am in love with and have been wearing ever since I opened the container. I asked to pay her. Nope. She wouldn't have any of that. She likes to barter instead, so she will be getting a lovely pair of booties later this month.

I have never met Indigo in person. She is another one of the wonderful people I have "met" by keeping this blog running. She has sent us a parcel in the past just full of sewing goodies and toys for Hunter. Indigo travels the north (and the world) and I hope that we will be able to meet in person soon.

Thank you Indigo. I appreciate your kindness and thoughtfulness so much!

Awwwwww! No worries. You deserve to have good things come your way. I always enjoy your blog so much. I am so glad the recylced furs will have a wonderful refurbished/refashioned/repurposed (what is the word?) home in the beautiful booties that you make. And I am SO impressed with Greyhound. Now if they only went to Nunavut!
