Gorgeous swap parcel!

I got back from a meeting at lunchtime to find something rather exciting in my post box.

My 'Lucy Locket's Mini-Quilt Swap' parcel from the very lovely and extremely talented Kajsa over at Syko.
I've loved the beautiful things Kajsa makes for quite some time now and was excited, to say the very least, when she was drawn as my swap partner!



Oddly enough, I was on the phone to Lucy Locket as I opened it and she shared in the excitement :)

My mini-quilt is so fab - I adore the colours and I love everything about it - especially the fact that it includes one of Kajsa's wonderful birds...and that cute house....and the gorgeous tree!!



The reverse is beautiful too - with a fab machine stitched label.

As if that was not enough Kajsa also sent me some beautiful fabrics and ribbons! As soon as I get a precious day off to myself I will be playing with them!


We're not finished yet! Kajsa also included two of her fab cards. I've admired these for ages!

Thank you so much Kajsa - it has been lovely to swap with you :)


Pop over to Kajsa's blog today - she's just had her next lot of beautiful cards delivered - I'm off there now to drool over them!


I'll leave you with this thought:



...wish someone would!!!!

I'm so glad you like it! I enjoyed making it! I forgot to mention that the tree was made from the Monda-felt you sent me :)

That woman on the last picture is me. I have no problem what so ever with having someone else cleaning my kitchen!

I am too jealous, I can't even speak to you anymore Mrs Moog.....


.....not really!! How amazing is that? Clever little thing that Syko, isn't she?

Kaz said...

I can't BELIEVE you have made me wait THIS LONG to see the contents of that gorgeous parcel from Kajsa after squealing so excitedly down the phone to me about it! Surely I should have had preferential treatment and been given the sneak preview - and don't give me any of that nonsense about you being too busy with work!

Seriously - wow, wow, WOW!!!! what a lovely mini-quilt and what scrumdiddlyumptious goodies! This swap has been my favourite so far!

As for the next one.............

I don't think I can talk to you any more. Jealousy is an evil thing.
