Thanks so much everyone for all the lovely comments on my winter quilt. It is now safely with its owner Susan at Chickenfoot.
Now I want to show you the super quilt that I received.
When we signed on for the Winter part of the Four Seasons Quilt Swap we were allowed to request a partner and Margaret, our extremely capable swap manager, tried to put together as many as she possibly could.
Well, lucky me, I got the partner I wanted.
Kathy from Pink Chalk Studio makes the most wonderful quilts and I just knew she would create something special. You really need to read this to see the process she went through to get to the final quilt.
The design is amazing and the colours just pop. It is so well made and I just love looking at all the quilting.
I think it will find a home on our kitchen wall amongst a lot of other bright artwork.
And lovely Kathy was so incredibly generous. Included in the swap package were three beautifully packaged little kitties peeking out of their own little quilt. One for each of my girls who were nearly hysterical with the excitement of it all.
Kathy's 12 year old daughter designed this gorgeous little cat and we all think it is fantastic!
They have slept with them every night since they arrived!
Thanks Kathy for such wonderful creativity and generosity.
And speaking of generosity and creative talent, the very lovely Jade just nominated me for a 'You make my day' award. Well right back at you Jade - your posts are always a pleasure to read.
And to make up a list of ten I tag my dear friend Cathy, Ali, Jo, Fiona, Florence, Liz, Leslie, Jodie, and H&B who has just today delivered the most beautiful baby boy! All fantastic blogs that I have to read as soon as I see they have posted. They're funny, creative, thought provoking and endlessly inspiring - thanks girls for making my day!!
