Winter Swap

For those of you who left a kind comment on the last entry about my contribution to the Four Seasons Quilt Swap, I thank you kindly. But THIS is why I am not satisfied with my project:






Is this not FANTASTIC?? Laila in Norway had my name and made this beautiful Christmas quiltlet for me. The words over the top are "And it all happened in those days" in Norwegian. I wish it was December again so I could display it--I can hardly wait til next year! It's hand quilted, too, can you see that?

She also included an outline of an angel to embroider, and beautiful angel fabric. I will have to ponder on how best to work this up, but what a wonderful challenge.
Laila, thank you SOOOO MUCH!


Spring always seems so busy, trying to get work done in the yard before it gets too hot, that I might not participate in the spring swap. On the other hand, I love those spring colors and have seen a couple of cute patterns I'd like to try.

Ahhh,yes, too many quilts, too little uncommitted time.
