Last week, I received my mini quilt swap from Sodeste/Tine in Denmark. Look! Look!
Isn't it wonderful! She also sent lots of goodies: stickers and cupcake toppers for Marguerite and coins for Zach. They were thrilled that they were getting something too!
Here is what I sent to her:
The colors were so bright (pink and orange) and the black border so stark that I couldn't get a good picture. Tine has a good one on her blog. I sent a few stickers for her daughter and some I Spy fabrics for her son's I Spy quilt. The quilt was based on a quilt in the book "Glorious Patchwork" by Kaffe Fassett.
Now look at this beauty! It is my doll quilt swap 4 quilt from fairbanksfancygoods. I love it! Isn't it wonderful! I can tell that she put a lot of thought and effort into making such a lovely quilt. There are three dimensional elements (tulle, wired poms, applique, flanges, and dimensional folded flowers). I love it!
more pictures on flickr! (of course)
I have two big things to prepare for this week:
1. Billy is going in Wednesday for hip replacement surgery. Please pray for us and especially for him.
2. There is a tropical storm/potential hurricane heading towards us. As of now, it is suppose to be over our area the same time as Billy's surgery. Hopefully, the path and strength will change. It usually does.
***I hope you all are well. And I want to thank you for all the nice comments you guys leave for me. Being a not-so-enlightened-blogger, how did you find me? am I bookmarked in your favorites? linked on your blog? Some of you are so faithful to leave comments, I feel a little ashamed for not being better at reciprocating. Please know that it truly means a lot to me!
***I started a new flickr group called Collaborative Quilting. A place to show quilts inspired by the book "Collaborative Quilting" by Freddy Moran and Gwen Marston. We'll talk about the book and even have a few swaps/challenges etc. You don't need to own the book to join. Come on by!
