Look what showed up at my door today


It is my Four Seasons Quilt Swap spring quilt! This beauty was made by Atet over at Quilting in Cornfields. It's such a wonderful little piece! It is a traditional Trip around the world, handquilted - she has done a beautiful job! And the embelishments are wonderful! She has knitted the lace and the little flowers, and in the corners she has embroidered some wonderful delicate flowers. Thank you so much!! It is a treasure! She had also included these goodies to the package - a beautiful pattern pack, some fabrics that gives the feeling of outdoors living, gardening - spring and summer! And a tiny shovel! Wonderful!

***

But I have even more goodies to share! Celebrating her one year blogiversary, and opening of her own online shop, Butterfly had a gviveaway a little while back - and I was one of the lucky winners!!! And tonight she delivered my winning in person on my door (and she stayed for a cup of tea *lol*). This is what she brought me:

One of her wonderful tea towels (you can find some of these in her shop!), a harmony stone and some long burning candles! I feel so lucky!!! Thank you!!!

Happy girl tonight!
Sincerely, Anne Ida
