Are you sure?
Well I must be a genius then because it is absolutely, fantabulously, incredibly BRILLIANT!!!!
Another mini-quilt landed through my door this morning and rescued me from sewing-stress-induced-fatigue-and-depression (my work list is getting to me - can you tell?) and instantly turned me into a madly, ecstatic, bouncy person!
This time it was from the wonderful Michaela of the Stash Basket and came wrapped in the softest and cutest flannel fabric with a happy spotty ribbon - and a button notecard too!
(but I haven't seen your scissors Michaela, sorry)
I almost don't want to show you the quilt because it is so fantastic that I don't think I can do it justice in a photo on my blog - does that make sense? And I don't know how to "fanfare" it properly - but anyway, here goes
my very own, allotment quilt!

Inside was this gorgeous card

So the ladybirds and I will be planting these seeds this evening after supper!
Thank you so much Michaela - I can't put into words how much my quilt means to me and all the little extras are lovely! Here it is on display on my very exciting quilt wall - I wonder whose will be next?
And in honour of my "allotment" quilt I will finish off today with another allotment photo of the first bamboo cane "structure" of 2008!
P.S. (because I never know when to shut up!) I'm feeling very guilty about receiving all these wonderful quilts as I haven't sent any of mine out yet - but don't worry, I am working on them and currently have 9 under construction so hopefully I will be posting some out very soon!)
