Seriously. Lucky me! I received this wonderful, beautiful, perfect swap package from Sarah of FairyFace Designs. These treasures flew all the way from Ireland and arrived in my mailbox today.
In her lovely process post, Sarah described her inspiration for this quilt as well as the process which took her way outside her comfort zone. I said in my swap questionnaire that I loved improv stuff, and grey, and monochromatic colour schemes with a pop of contrast. Boy, did she nail it or what? I mean, look at that quilting! Just like what I did on the pouch I made my partner! And can you believe she's never done improv letters before? That Q is fantastic! I love the punch of colour that the pink adds to this beauty, especially as the dot on the i.
Oh but that wasn't all, friends - look at the incredible stitching on this beautiful mug rug:
The whole package also included some fabric, some wooden buttons and some lovely postcards of Ireland. THANK YOU, SARAH!!
Wow! Love them both!ReplyDelete
Wow, those are awesome, lucky you is right. :)ReplyDelete
you are so incredibly lucky - that is one heck of the perfect package that you received!ReplyDelete
Felicity you are so welcome, I'm thrilled that you are so happy with them, it was a nailbiting 2 weeks waiting for them to arrive and see what you thought! I loved making them and will definitely be doing more improv stuff.ReplyDelete
I am so excited that this package was for you!! I had hoped it would be, because it seemed to just say "Felicity" - so I'm glad I was right about that :) So glad you enjoyed the swap!ReplyDelete
Oh so fun! Sarah is darling and I love what she made for you. Seems to be a perfect fit.ReplyDelete
I commented on Sarah's blog that this could only have been more you if it said "Felicity" instead of "quilt"! You're super lucky!ReplyDelete
These look fantastic: very Felicity-esque :)ReplyDelete
Awesome! And seeing the "quilt" part of the quilt makes it even more awesome.ReplyDelete
Love them both!!! Wow!ReplyDelete
Awesome! What a thrill it must have been to open that parcel! Love the stitching on the mug rug!ReplyDelete
Whoa, lucky lucky girl!! What fabulous treasures from overseas!!ReplyDelete
