I have received two wonderful parcels in the past few days.

From ThreadorYarn, some angora to spin with (looks fantastic!), a beautiful mermaid for decorating around my fish tank, and so much dark chocolate I feel spoiled  Grin

And from hdcase, this wonderful thread catcher to hang on my desk (it is perfect!), plus some beautiful beads, a cute magnet, and sweet note cards.  The magnet, if you can't read it, says "I'm too busy to be organized" which fits me to a T  Grin

Thank you so much, both of you.

32  Roman Wall quilted wallhanging in Quilting: Completed Projects by gatheredthreads on: December 18, 2007 06:43:06 PM
I made this for a course I am taking.  It is inspired by the Within 4 Walls quilts by Sandra Meech.

I printed the photos on fabric using bubble jetset solution, then quilted for added depth.  I'm really proud of it Smiley

Reethi and I arranged a swap: I knitted her some wool socks, and she sent me a tote bag and some african fabrics.

Here is what she sent:

The tote bag is so luxurious in colour and feel, and I love the batiks! I can't wait to work with them Smiley  Thank you again, reethi.
