Post from Lynne!

If you have already visited Susan at Canadian Abroad you will know that she received a fantastic package from Lynne of Lilys Quilts in return for some photos at the Festival of Quilts!  Well I was there with Susan and I took photos too and I also got a package from Lynne yesterday!

I was anticipating a few little charms at best but was overwhelmed by Lynne's generosity!

Here is what she sent me!

Quite a variety including Sarah Fielke from little things, some adorable Ruby Star Rising, Cameras from Echino, Love by Amy Butler, Komachi Project by Cotton, and one other  - I love it, I've seen it but don't know what it is called... 2nd one down on the right!  Plus some Aurifil  thread to try out in green!

I have palpatations thinking about this booty!  Now I need to think of something to do justice to these lovelies....

..... it does need to be something special, nothing less will do....and as there is quite a lot of the heavier weight fabric I am thinking perhaps of making a bag from this book I have been waiting to use

unless you have a better idea, or course....I am listening?!!

Not only did I receive this fabulous gift but I also won in a giveaway thanks to two little furry creatures from Pomona's lovely blog Little Cottage Comforts.  The prize is this book.... 

So I may be coming to an organic location near you -you have been warned!

Better go and buy that lottery ticket as I seem to be living a charmed life!  


  1. You're getting really nice post at the moment! The parcel from Lynne is lovely - a bag is a fabulous idea! Enjoy your get away book - don't think there are any up here so I'm safe ;o) Good luck with the lottery!

  2. I have the Bag Making Bible. Best bag making book IMHO.
    Well done you.

  3. Love the fabrics! Can't wait to see what you make of them - and might even see you down our way on your peregrinations?!
