Finished Quilts

the postman always rings twice

...or, in my case, knocks really quietly then puts the parcels in a secret place before scarpering.  Still, he leaves lovely stuff in there, like two fabulous goodie filled parcels - one from Helen and one from Liz.

So Helen's parcel was courtesy of the Modern She Made swap...

a really lovely cushion cover which is taking pride of place on my favourite chair

and the cutest hoop with liberty lawn and Lucky Jackson embroidery
Helen - I love them both.  The hoop is up on the wall in my sewing space (the first thing up there!)and looks like it was made for there.  The cushion cover has a dark blue linen border and back and I can't believe it was Helen's first ever cover - perfect.

Then the Scrappy Swap and I squealed with delight when I saw the label on the parcel showing that it came from Liz, who has been such a friend to me over the past months.

a bag full of goodies

filled with lots of loveliness
A rubbish photo I'm afraid but somehow Liz has managed to figure out that I have a wee thing for Melody Miller (there's me thinking I'm all subtle and everything). So my goodie bag contained a pile of amazing MM scraps, a fab MM mug rug, a great wee fabric basket and some amazing vintage notions as well as a Hastings tea towel and postcards (oh and some sweeties!).  You can get a better idea here -  There was a wee tear!  You are an angel, Liz.

A third parcel this weekend resulted in this....

Fine Feathered in Whisper from Field Study No1 by AMH charm squares for the Low Volume Charm Swap being organised by Laura @ Needles, Pins and Baking Tins, all ready to be posted this morning.

If only every postie delivery could be so joy-inducing.


  1. Ooh you lucky thing! Gorgeous parcels :o)

    Had a bit of a giggle at the MM obsession - subtlety is for losers (although being a fellow obsessor I guess I would say that!)

  2. Fab post. I have had my eye on that cushion for a while and wondering who was going to be the lucky one. Liz is a real friend and she has posted you some lovelies there. I too am in the LV swap so I can't wait to receive one of your charms. Di x

  3. What a great swap package. I'm still waiting for mine, can't wait!

  4. Good haul! Love the fabric you chose for the LV swap.

  5. certainly like your website however you have to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very
    bothersome to inform the reality nevertheless I'll surely come back again.

  6. Oh, wow - you do get some lovely mail!

  7. Pleased you like them. I will have a sewing space one day..... When I de-clutter the Junk Room.

  8. You have made some good points there. I checked on the internet to find out more about the issue and found most individuals will go along with your views on this web site.
