I’ve had the best round with Doll Quilt Swap! I love making little quilts for people and of course the payoff is a new quilt for me. For those that don’t know, DQS is a secret swap, you never know who is sending a quilt your way! The fun is watching all the beautiful quilts added to the pool over the course of the 2 months. Some finish fast and others are still sewing at the deadline, so there is always something new to see! I love to leave comments as adorable quilts are posted, but rarely allow myself to believe that it could be for me.
Imagine my surprise yesterday when I opened the mailbox and found a package from Australia, containing this gem —
Nicole of Craftapalooza, has been stalking around here getting to know me, and made this just for me! Each petal of the flower is about 3/4″ across, and the flowers are not quite 2 1/2″ total. Adorable, little details in each flower too! And this is something that I have yet to even try for myself. Joe thinks I’m a little strange carrying it around and running my hand over the flowers – they are just too beautiful!
She included some great little extras too! Thanks again Nicole – I love it :) Just what I needed yesterday too – I was going on little sleep and feeling a bit down after spending the afternoon cleaning. Thankfully Emmalie has been 24+ hours without incident and at kindergarten this morning!!
