Look at what arrived special delivery..hand delivered by my friend, Claire!! Yes it’s THE QUILT!! THE QUILT THAT WAS QUILTED BY ENGLAND’S FINEST…QUILT SUE!! Now you are all probably wondering how Claire got it…well to make a long story short I gave Sue Claire’s address just in case the mail took longer than anticipated – with my luck it would arrive after we had left for down south. I could see it taking the slow boat back to England….
But it got here in record time!! And just look at it…the quilting is GORGEOUS!! Just to refresh your memory…Quilt Sue and I struck up a barter…to learn more about THAT go HERE!
I made the quilt using the pattern Sticks and Stones by Sandy Gervais…just feast your eyes on the quilting…like Icing on the Cake!! Sheer perfection…and Quilt Sue was worried that I wouldn’t like it!! Sheesh…what quilter in their right mind wouldn’t LOVE this quilting!!
Thank you so much Quilt Sue for taking an alright quilt and turning into into a jewel that I will treasure!!
What’s this?…more prezzies (as Sue calls them)…this lovely Christmas bag pops open to reveal that it’s been filled with English chocolate bars! Doesn’t Sue realize that I have to fit into a bikini next month…looks like I’ll have to trade it in for a muumuu!!…but so worth it!!
AND my very own Christmas Mug Rug!! I’m SEW spoiled… and loving it!!
Yup…I just poured my morning coffee and I’m ready to fire up the computer…to check up on all of you!!
Quick…cover it before Sue sees!!
Thanks SEW much Sue…some lovely keepsakes from my dear blogging buddy across the pond…. I think I got the best of the barter!! I’m doing the Konga down the length of the 5th wheel…dodo dodo do dooo! Doo dodo do doo! Which takes all of 5 seconds…maybe I better go outside? :o)
Have a Sunny Sunday and Happy Quilting!~P
