"Yummy" magazines, beautiful Moda charm squares, lovely quilty postcards, and...a tumbler plastic template to rotary cut my pieces for that tumbler quilt I long to make. The icing on the cake being that all that was wrapped in a gorgeous fabric, with a ribbon.. My ! I felt like the Queen of England !
I just can't wait starting to pre-cut my fabrics (and send some to Heather, as we're planning to make the quilt together). Heather also generously offered to send some pre-cut pieces in civil war repro's - as "poor" Nadine can't find these in her little corner of the world... :>)
Hereunder is a photo of the beauty I 've put on my nr.2 List (the realistic one, heheee...). By the way, I accidentally "fell" on the author 's Blog. Her blog header is showing this winner. Please, please, if you don't know it yet, run to it ! Each quilt is a treasure to look at!
This morning brought to me the latest issue of my Australian P&Q, to which I'm subscribing for about 5 years, now.... I certainly have enough patterns for my own life and the generations to come,but hey.... who said we have to make all of them ?
However..... look at that gorgeous quilt on the cover ! (not to speak about the 10 other ones inside :>) ...Hmmmm... shall I put it on the (nr1) "dream list", or on nr.2 ???
Yesterday was fiesta, as well ! I had ordered this treat at Quilt Books USA, and OMG what a treat ! You may know that Rebecca Barker is a very talented aquarellist (and a quilter). She paints fabulous quilts as if they were part of landscapes. Not only can you just relax, watching the pictures and dream, but she also provides the patterns for each quilt (18 in this book)... As you will guess : I want to make them all !
ENJOY YOUR QUILTING !
Still no SSCS envelope in my mailbox... However SANTA, aka Jenny has emailed me, and the poor dear is sooo worried about this. She mailed the parcel by end of November, and doesn't understand why it still hasn't reached my home. Now I'm sorry for Jenny ! I'm so sorry for the time and money) she spent in order to please me, and I perfectly understand how she's feeling (remember when my car was stolen, with quilty parcels for friends inside ?)....
We'll move on over that, Jenny. Please stop worrying, it's not your fault at all, dear ! And, by the way, it can still come. Maybe it's blocked at the customs, or something like that. Who knows ? ....
