The mailman has been good to me these past couple of days. Yesterday, a package arrived from Kris - I had won a give-away on her blog, Dandelion Quilts. Two gorgeous charm packs of Aster Manor - oh how I love this fabric.
Thank you Kris! This is destined for something yummy!! I don't know what yet, but with this fabric it's bound to be yummy!
And today, the mailman brought me a box from my friend Angie. I've known Angie for many years from our homeschool board, although we've never met in person. I wish we could, cuz I'd hug her real big and dance her around the room.
A quilt top and blocks that her great-grandmother made. [Terrible pic of the quilt top - I need to take it outside to do it justice.]
Stitched by hand, of course. And then the quilt blocks, there are several of each.
These below are made of silk, I believe, fragile and absolutely stunning in person.
Angie, thank you SO much, I promise to take very good care of them and hopefully do them justice - I am truly honored that you trust me to them!
Other than the cardiac-inducing mail that's come, it's been pretty quiet in Allie-land. I did finish my bookmarks, so that's a quick gift crossed off my list. I'll show pics tomorrow. And speaking of tomorrow, I'll be doing the official link-up post to show off your Christmas gifts! I'll explain all the details on how to link up on that post. You'll have until midnight of the 31st to do that. At midnight on the 31st, I'll officially close the month out, and next week we'll pick a winner for the table runner/wall hanging. So get your stitch on, I'll see you tomorrow!
