No willpower

Oh, I'm a bad, bad person. I knew the parcel waiting for me when I got home from work was my Valentine swap gift. I thought about leaving it til the 14th to open ..... but couldn't help myself. In my defense, I did have a bad day so needed some cheering up.

So, in my parcel was this darling package with the cutest pink bow:


And you can imagine how thrilled I was when I opened it to reveal this amazing quilt. It is just beautifully pieced and quilted. It is a 36" table topper. I'm going to think where I can put it - nowhere where it will be at risk of spills that's for sure! It may even end up on a wall.

And here is a close up of the lovely wool applique centre:

So thank you Sheri, the talented and generous quilter who sent me this lovely package (including a pattern so I can make my own table quilt - unfortunately my camera just decided to run out of battery, so I can't take a photo of it). Sheri, I hope your secret Valentine spoils you just as much as you have spoiled me. Thank you so much! You really made my day! A big thank you to Kris too who coordinated this fun swap.
