Don’t you just love it when the postie stops by with a little package and you weren’t expecting anything? I most certainly do! Sometimes I recognise the hand-writing on the front. Sometimes I have to turn over and look for the sender’s name . . . but it’s always really exciting, those few seconds before the package is ripped open.
The other day, I received an un-birthday gift and card from Cathy, aka nanacathy.
The most gorgeous bookmark, made with lace and a lilac ribbon not to mention a tiny pair of scissors on the end. How appropriate and totally unexpected!
And something else that was totally unexpected . . . Avis had decided to make some blocks in my F2F colourway “just because”. There are 9 ladies in the F2F swap this season which means we all end up with 27 blocks but with the extra block from Nanette and the 3 surprise blocks from Avis, I now have 31. Plenty for either one large quilt and a cushion cover, or 2 smaller quilts and cushion cover.
Here is a close up of each block.
My photography is a bit off, I can assure you, blocks are all lovely, and crisp and square. I had a good chuckle at the grey fabric . . . can you see, it’s covered in paw prints, awww!
A big warm thank you Cathy and Avis. You both brought a big smile to my face.
