Quilty Loveliness


I recently entered a giveaway on a lovely blog called Comfort Stitching that I just happened to stumble upon. The prize was unbelievably generous and I nearly didn't bother entering it because there had been so many comments left already and I really didn't think that there would be much of a chance of winning something that was very much sought after. Imagine how surprised and delighted I was when I received an e mail from Aneela telling me that I had won her beautiful lap quilt!


It is absolutely beautiful and she must of put so much work and time into making it. The centre square has been hand embroidered with a lovely flower design, and the colours used in the patchwork all work really well together.


I am sure my pictures don't really show you how lovely the quilt is ~ I have tried to take them from as many different angles as possible ~ and for those of you that know how long it has taken me to get more than one photo in a post, I hope you notice that there is a bit of progress happening now! Please also excuse the burnt and faded grass, it's Scottish and it is not used to all this gorgeous hot weather that we have been having :O)

I was going to leave a comment but thought there was little point as I am not a very lucky person in general... well done you... I am sure it will be very well used and loved...

What a beautiful quilt you lucky girl and may i just say that i think your little blue speckled chicken is just incredible! I LOVE him!

As for Swap Anxiety i definately have that. I finished making my swap items today (i've made 'Punch and Judy' dolls but sshhhhh don't tell my swap buddy!) and i'm really pleased with them but i'm already worried that my swap partner may not like them. Now i need to think of some other seaside goodies to send with them. Doh!..........anxiety yes, and yet it's still fun!
