#37.Cat Dodt-Ellis - Little Book Swap!

From Cat Dodt-Ellis in Idaho, we have 3 yummy little books - each in their own handmade envelope. Let me show you!

book 1

book 2

book 3

Cat is an online friend of mine who I have known for quite some time.
She also enclosed a special gift for me . . . 
She wrapped up a gift with one of her quilt squares, a piece of muslin, 
2 vintage linen handkerchiefs, a flower & some seam binding.
 These things were a gift in themselves, but inside was a book Cat picked out especially for me, objects of my affection, by sarah Lugg. This is a beautiful book filled with sarah's collages and paintings paired with poetry. Sarah is a British mixed media artist who became quite famous, received many commissions, licensed her work and is known especially for her beautiful Tag Art, much of which is in this book.

And you wondered if I would like it, Cat?! 
I love the gift you sent and spent time looking through it yesterday 
(our anniversary!). Thank you ever so much!!
