Well sorry for making you all wait so long to see my wonderful goodies but unfortunately Mr Locket had the car yesterday and the camera was in the glove compartment and then when I was ready to take pics today the battery was flat!!! I wasn't trying to be particularly mean, honest!
So finally here are my goodies from the land down under
First up is my quilt from Annie
I just love Aunty Cookie's cookie people and that music fabric is beautiful - and what I just noticed today when I was photographing it is that Annie has made the music staves join up so they run smoothly across the quilt - she's a clever thing!
Annie sent me all these gorgeous fabrics including some ladybird gingham which will be great to make things for the Little Lockets and some more Aunty Cookie peeps!
and she also included this gorgeous rose and a beautiful embroidered and beaded heart
Thank you so much Annie - I love every bit of my parcel from you and especially my quilt - it is FABULOUS!!!!!
Next up in this amazing parcel was my quilt from Jodie - when we had talked about what I might make for her and vice versa I said I would just like something that her "Ric-Rac humour" - and I think I got it don't you???
This quilt just makes me laugh so much - I love it - and it is so Jodie!
And then Jodie also sent me some wonderful Aunty Cookie fabric - I hadn't realised I had sent those "I ADORE Aunty Cookie fabric" vibes so loudly - I was squealing with excitement as I opened each parcel from these wonderful girls (because guess what Rachel sent me too!)
look I even got the knitting one I longed for! But I'm not sure if the skipping child is AC or not?
and then there were these beautiful charm squares too!
and two of Jodie's cards - I am even more amused than ever about the tape measure one after Jodie's tape measure purse tutorial where she tells us to get some tape measures from our "tape measure collection"!
Thank you so much Jodie - I love everything!
Finally there was my parcel from Rachel with the most beautifully embroidered stitchery!
You have to look at it closely because Rachel's stitches are tiny weeny and so very very neat - I am in awe of how well she does it and those colours are gorgeous!
Look at the label on the back too
it's good enough to be on the front! How do I get to see both sides at once????
And as I mentioned before, Rachel also sent me some Aunty Cookie peeps - and this one has my absolute favourite that just makes me laugh every time I think about it
"Who you callin' a fat quarter?"
And she included these lovely blocks that I can't wait to use - especially the little tiny ones which are the same size as the squares around my stitchery from her.
Thank you so much Rachel - you are a complete star!
So my Ballarat pals have sent me the most incredible parcel don't you think? And I will leave you with Jodie's quilt label
because I agree with it - as far as I am concerned this has been the most "incredible Lucy Locket mini quilt swap"!!!!
And come back next time to see my goodies from Lesley and the wonderful quilt that arrived yesterday from Lina! I love the post!
