Well yesterday was a bit hectic - the wee chap went back to school (year 1) and luckily he was pleased to go back. The little lady was less impressed about going back to nursery but luckily her best pal arrived at the same time as us so they ran off happily to play - tantrum averted! Work was busy and then the rush to collect the kids.
So it was a nice little excitement to open the front door and see a card from the postman. As I wasn't expecting anything else I was pretty sure it was my Brit Quilt Swap parcel.
Luckily on Wednesdays I work at home so after dropping off the kids I headed for the parcel office and then raced home. Opening the box here is what awaited me:
So I opened it up and inside were
Gorgeous scraps, Green & Blacks Chocolate (my favourite!) and such a pretty package. It didn't stay pretty for long as I ripped into it. And then I actually let out an audible gasp
I am so happy that I got this fabulous mini from Mary of The Wool Palace - she really ticked all my boxes. All the quilts in the swap were lovely but this is one that I actually coveted. When Mary first posted a picture of it I feel in love with it and am blown away that it is actually mine.
The picture doesn't do it justice - it is beautifully pieced and the Oakshott cottons glow against the linen background.
The swap was great fun and I'm so glad I took part.
Right I'd better get on with some work!
