Random reflections on quilting and other creative endeavors
Sunday, October 16, 2011
Despite the fact that I have been so distracted by all that has been going on, I managed to sign up for several fall swaps. The end of October is looming large, and I am still way behind. But motivation arrived at my house yesterday in the form of this adorable package from Christine, a/k/a owenjulesmommy, from the Mug Rug Swap Adventure 3 swap. Isn't it a great package? I asked for something for Thanksgiving, and Mr. Gobbles, so named by my partner's little one, fits the bill.
I love that his "feathers" are all attached like petals on a flower. He is the perfect Thanksgiving turkey.
And would you look at the great pouch that came along with Mr. Gobbles? I have been admiring it(, and I was so surprised when it showed up at my door. I love the dresden motif - that has always been one of my favorites. Just too cool. And it is filled with thoughtful goodies.
