Thrilled to the back teeth!


Funny expression that, but not so priceless as the look on my face when I got home from work yesterday and discovered a parcel waiting for me - yes, I received the quilt made for me for the Four Seasons Quilt Swap.

I am the luckiest girl in the world, for my swap partner was none other than Quilting Bebbs! I was so thrilled because I had admired the quilt on her blog and she had indicated that her quilt recipient didn't read her blog so I sadly thought it wasn't me! (Click here and here to see how she made it)

I was doing my little happy dance like such a crazy woman when I realised she was pulling my leg and I was indeed lucky enough to receive her beautiful 'dancing snowflakes' quilt.

It is really as beautiful, if not more, in real life than it is in pictures on the web. The piecing, is, of course, perfect, and the quilting is wonderful. I am in awe of Anne's machine quilting prowess - I am such a chicken - I must try free motion quilting one day. Anne, you may have just inspired me to give it a go!

Anne, thank you so much - I am really thrilled to the back teeth!

I'm just so glad it got there safely - you put your trust in the post office but it would be awful if it went astray as things sometimes do - and I'm happy you love it too
