And I've been spoilt too

On Thursday Keryn made a kind offer to give the pattern, fabrics and some sewn blocks of this fabulous quilt to another blogger.
Luckily I was the first to reply and the very next day a wonderful parcel arrived.  I'm over the moon and feel well and truly spoilt.

Thank you so much Keryn -it's like Christmas all over again.
I had a wonderful fun filled day with my lovely NOTYQ friends yesterday.  We enjoyed a stitching day at The Patchwork Teahouse.  As always the morning devonshire tea was delicious 
and I just had to share the cute salt and pepper shakers on our table.

This quilt is pretty special.  There is a wonderful tutorial HERE to help you make a fabulous hexie quilt for yourself.
It comes from Marrietta in Russia and is truly delightful.  Thank you so much.

Hope you get a little bit of stitching time this weekend

  2. You are a lucky gal! I made this quilt a few years ago and enjoyed every block. I wasn't very experienced at appliqué at the time. I had appliquéd the circles for the birdhouses...over time, they all came off, but I'm sure you will do a much better job! Enjoy!
