All the way from Australia came a owl wrapped package full of goodness. Lorraine of Small Quilts was my secret partner for the Pillow Talk Swap. She sent along *the* most gorgeous pillow cover, a sweet little cushion, (elephant and red polka dots!!) and a patchwork pouch in my very favorite color. Thank you thank you! I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. : )
Then, tucked inside my mailbox was an envelope from the U.K. I got to meet my friend Brioni (flossyblossy) at quilt market. We got to talking about our shared love for the Joseph's Coat Quilt Along. She has already started hers, you MUST take a peek here. She so generously offered to send me her templates so I could make my own! (Insert big grin here) Thank you Flossy!!
Sometimes you just get lucky... and one day recently I did get very, very lucky. I won the Fat Quarterly giveaway for Kajsa Wikman's new book, Scandinavian Stitches!!! Kajsa's style is so charming and whimsical her whole book just makes me smile. I'm can't wait to make the sweet Tomte Stuffy and a Yule House for my family.
And then.... if that weren't enough to have me squealing with happiness and dancing about the house... this arrived from Kajsa herself. A set of the cutest cards featuring her work. Here are three of my favorites...
Ok back to sewing for me. I've got a long list of "to finish before Christmas" and only 10 days to do it. What are you working on this week??
