Lots of wonderful blue fabrics, some really sharp piecing, and it is beautifully hand quilted!And it gives of a genuine feeling of winter in the woods! A true gem! It found it's way onto my kitchen wall within a few minutes of me opening the parcel - I felt the need for seeing it up there! Looks great!
Rose Marie also included some other goodies - a book which looks like I'll get lots of inspiration from, a note pad with a wintery scene and some maple sugar that looks absolutely yummy:
She is such a sweetheart! Thank you so much, Rose Marie!!!
Quilty news from me? Not very much... I finished my stitchery on the first block of Bea's BOM. I used a variegated blue floss on wow fabric, a result I'm pleased with (I think I'm in a "blue mood" again *lol*):
Yesterday I was at Lappemakeriet's (the LQS where my parent's live) show and tell of the BOMs they are running and the samples for their classes this spring. A lot of lovely quilts to see (unfortunately I forgot my camera). Fun story: they had a free gift of a magazine or booklet or ruler to all who attended, and I picked up a magazine at random. It turned out to be the Sept. issue of Australian Patchwork and Quilting - the one with Tazzie's "Bears in the Garden" quilt! I love that quilt!
And of course I did some shopping, but I was a good girl and didn't pick up any fabric! Just lots of batting, some quilt stencils and some packs of "quilting made easy" - hope this is a sign of more finishes for me in the time to come!
Hope you have had a wonderful weekend!
Sincerely, Anne Ida
