Ooooh, My oh My !
It was still dark outside, when the mailman knocked my window,
with a big package coming from Nicosia - Cyprus !
I can't tell you how excited I was,
discovering this lovely big box...
Hmmmm.... what could be inside ???
OMG, a quilt !
A wonderful quilt for me, myself, moi !
Look at this beauty and those gorgeous colors....
And who could have had this fabulous idea,
of mixing precious Den Haan&Wagenmakers fabrics
with polka dots, plus those we frantically collected
together, when in Provence ?
VALI, of course !
My dear, dear friend, Vali....
Here's a close-up
Each and every fabric is a new discovery,
bringing back such swet memories and perfumes :
lavender, blue sky, grapes, raspberries, tomatoes....
and all those laughters & giggles.
It really is a story quilt and you can imagine
how I'm gonna cherish this beauty.
(I can't show you the backing, (+ handquilting!)
just know that Vali chose a very special, warm flannel,
in order to keep me warm in this cold, rainy country of mine.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, dear sissie!
Really, I tell you my friends,
turning 60 is absolutely won-der-ful !
ENJOY YOUR SEWING,
ENJOY THE SEASON,
ENJOY LIFE !
