My Iraqi Bundle of Love

by This is Carrie on September 9, 2009

Just in the nick of time, I got my Iraqi Bundle of Love shipped out. Word is, the color green is really popular among Iraqi women.

Inside: A stack of prints, a piece of denim, a length of ready to dye velveteen, a few yards of wool, a cut of mint green linen, a handful of buttons, a sampling of unique elastic, some ribbon and an allotment of purple ric rac. The awesomeness of ric rac crosses ethnic and cultural borders I am sure.

Here’s to hoping someone turns this “short-duration project” into on-going, “de-stash for good” project.

Mine went out in the nick of time, too–the usual for me! Not nearly as prettily done up as yours, in my hurry, but I ended up destashing ten boxes worth! Wrapping has never been my strong point, anyway.

And I too hope that this turns into some kind of ongoing project.

I got mine out as well. Unfortunately, I learned about the green thing too late. Hopefully next time.
