I missed signing up for your mini quilt swap as I was on holiday. You could have called me a cheat if I had signed up though as I allready have the quilt I wanted to send you. It was made by my aunt in the late 70's and has spent the last 25-30 years in a box. I have 3 others the same and thought it would look great on your wall.
I would not want anything in return; you have allready (unknowingly) given me a lot.
Laughter, when reading your blog.
More laughter, when reading other blogs from the list on your blog.
Most importantly, you have, with other bloggers, given me my crafting Mojo back! It had been missing for nearly 20 years!
I now have a new sewing machine and a list as long as my arm of projects I want to make!
If you let me have your postal addy, I will get it in the post to you
PS. My aunt would have been pleased if her quilt could hang with others; unfortunately she died 2 years ago (aged 91)
I was obviously intrigued and overwhelmed by the generosity of Eve's offer especially as I hadn't met her (in the blog sense) before this email arrived.
And you can imagine how thrilled I was when I received these parcels yesterday
and look at this amazing quilt! I think I was expecting something really traditional so this fantastic chicken was a real surprise. Look how tiny those hexagons are and the colours are so funky! Eve's aunt's name was Dagny Jalser and she was born in 1913. I feel really honoured to have one of her quilts on my wall.
And look who were hiding in the parcels for the little Lockets
These amazing Munkees knitted by Eve who quickly made themselves at home in the urban jungle that is our back garden!
The children were thrilled and have christened them "Mad Thing" (Dorothy's), "Petal" (Daisy) and "Raindrop" (Fred) - it was difficult to get a photo of them because they haven't left the children's sides since they opened them.
especially as they are so snuggly!
Thank you so much Eve - I am really touched by your generosity.
I also need to thank Eve for this award that she gave me yesterday
Thank you so much Eve - I am delighted that I have helped you get your crafting mojo back (although I'm not sure I really deserve the award!)
I would like to pass this on to all my friends in blogland - I am constantly inspired and encouraged to make new things and try new ideas - thank you!
