HI! yay I recieved first!! from the most awesome thriftiest, craftiest, knowing all crafster : the lovely farmgirljane one of my fabulous aussie partners!
I was completely amazed, charmed and smitten by my fabulous package!
I recieved a .....>>>QUILT!!!!<<< SHABBY CHIC STYLE>>>
really gorgeous and matches my lounge curtain colour theme! (uncanny!!
I raced to the postoffice at the end of the day to pickup my parcel, just made it. I was given a huge heavy brown paper parcel!!
It was choc full
I got home and my 2 wee boys helped me open it.
they are becoming an expert on swaps!
At first appearance the first item seemed to be a pillow but wait! inside is an awesome quilt for my couch (sneaky!! when is a pillow not a pillow jane writes me, look inside!)
I also recieved a pretty faric covered journal and lovely handmade calendar envelopes (i just had read that thread last night and thought ooh nice)!. Crafty supplies...a big packet of crochet hooks, pinking shear scissors!! sewing patterns & craft magazines (didnt have these ones and i have heaps so welldone) & a macrame book. Also 2 clock workings so I can make some for xmas (jane had sent me one in another swap, totally cool) wrapped in pellon (always handy!)
gorgeous quilt blocks detail:
amazing i love it!
I feel so lucky and happy, it was like a late birthday present.
I have made many quilts for others but never had one made for me. It feels so special! I will treasure it always Jane.
