Look at all this cool stuff!! All wrapped in pumpkin orange tissue paper! Things in the box:
a gorgeous tulip mini quilt in blue, white and yellow
a Purple Thang
a spool of thread
a little wall hanger with clips
a magnetic calendar and ink pen
popcorn from South Dakota
a tiny flying geese pin to wear
3 beautiful fat quarters
Here's a close up of the quilt. Sylvia added crystal beads in the center for embellishments. It is sooooooooooo pretty and I am SOOOOOOOOOOO pleased!!
Thank you soooooooooooo much for everything, Sylvia!! Make sure you all check out her blog- http://happierdocsly.blogspot.com/ .
I have also finished my own mini quilt for the Spring Blooms Swap. I machine appliqued a blue and white columbine flower onto pink background fabric then added 2 borders. After it was finished, I added tiny yellow buttons in the flower center. I like the way it turned out... and I sure hope my secret partner will like it, too. I'm mailing it out tomorrow!!
I also finished my own little pin cushion for that Swap today.
It is a little bunny made from 2 log cabin quilt blocks with long floppy ears and front paws added along with a fluffy white tail and beads for eyes and en embroidered nose. Very fun to create!!
But I am waiting for an email from the swap leader... I have accidentally lost her email to me that told me the name and address of my partner... and I've got the box all packed with the pin cushion and other goodies. I hope I get that email real soon! Like tonight!
