Welll, my excellent postal day started before we went out to the zoo with friends (and spent the WHOLE day at the zoo) and continued on my return - how cool is that. This morning, the doorbell rang and it was the guy who drives the van bringing around the parcels - it was two things, one was the fabric I ordered from equilter (pic below), the other was the above, which is my little summer quilt from the Four Seasons swap - it came from Louise in Australia and is called The Summer Dress - isn't it great? Almost makes me wish I had a dress like this, too, as well as having the quilt (but a dress like this wouldn't suit me, so it's just as well I just have the quilt). Thanks so much, Louise!
Then I also got this, this evening when we got back from the zoo - it came via the regular postie person, later in the day - it was Mr Scrappy Crow, who I won in Julie's giveaway. He's come to live with me, in my sewing room. Isn't that lucky for me? For him, too, I hope! And there were goodies, as well - how cool is that? The chocolate is somewhat gone (but not entirely), and the other things are happily up in my sewing room.
Here's a closeup - and here are the fabrics I ordered from eQuilter - the batik is due to be a border for my friend Caroline's sister's quilt (the diamond one) - luckily, it goes nicely, I think.
