I came home to some wonderful mail yesterday!
First, there was my Four Seasons spring quilt from the lovely Tracy - very funny two Aussie gals making spring quilts in autumn! Look at the lovely tulip block - very spring indeed!
And Tracy spoiled Romily with some hair clips, hair ties, sticker ladybugs and a magnifying glass (which you can't see here as Romily has claimed it all for herself already!) all in a cute zippered bag. Thank you Tracy!
Then there was my fabric order from Virginia Quilter - yes, Very Hungry Caterpillar fabric. A centre panel x 2 and four metres of matching fabric. I am planning on making matching quilts for Romily and Bub#2 - a single bed quilt for Rom and a cot quilt for the baby. It's very cute fabric - the colours are exactly as you'd expect them to be!
Also last week a beautiful book arrived from the Book Depository - the Alabama Stitch Book. It's a wonderfully presented book that shows you how to recycle old t-shirts and make them into things of beauty. Lots of lovely ideas in here - and everything, I mean everything, is stitched by hand :-o - I was inspired to buy this after seeing it on Blair's Wise Craft blog. Gorgeous.
Finally, and by no means least, I have ordered some gorgeous quilty notecards from Doodlebug Gail. Get ye on over to her blog, where she's having a giveaway of some sample packs of her lovely cards. She's such a generous woman and now she has some fab notecards for you to buy and share with all your quilting buddies :)
No more progress on my Four Seasons quilt - better get a wriggle on! I have just been too tired to do anything. Tonight is the night - I MUST get that appliqué happening!!
