Art Washes away from the soul .......

........the dust of everyday life. This quote by Pablo Picasso adorns the inside of the most gorgeous gift box I received in the mail this morning.

I was speaking with Marion (Artmixter) yesterday and she said her quilt had returned home from The Quilter's Hall of Fame, Indiana yesterday and so I thought perhaps my Marie Curie quilt would arrive home today (it hasn't yet). I thought when the postman knocked it was my quilt but even better than that it turned out to be this beautiful box:


Each side has a different design
Embossed and stitched .....
Altered jigsaw piece .........
Friendly plastic(?)
with the lovely quote inside. A beautiful work of art. There was no note but the label on the package said it was from Patsy in Colorado. Thank you Patsy it is beautiful and a lovely surprise. I am not sure what I did to deserve it but it just made my day.
