Random reflections on quilting and other creative endeavors
Thursday, November 8, 2012
There has been some really fun mail arriving at the prsd4tim2 household lately. Last Saturday was no exception. I received my Modernista package from Heidi (fabricmutt). I am so excited by the things she sent. First was this wonderful little mini quilt. I've seen these around Flickr and always been slightly envious. What an adorable creation she made for me. I especially love how the fabrics she chose work so well in this little scene. The pearl bracelets for the sky and the DS Quilts green for the grass. The text picket fence. The "brick" for the house - not sure what fabric that is but it works so well.
The detail is really cool. I love the "trim" on the eve of the house and the quilt on the clothesline. How about the lady in the window with the turkey? And check out the mailbox.
But that wasn't all she sent. She also sent this great table runner. Love the colors with the linen. And there are some of my favorite prints in there. So yummy.
She added a few charms, and what a perfect package it was.
I also received my winter package from Mary P in the Rugs with Friends swap. Mary is really on the ball, because I haven't started my little mug rug yet, although I do have a plan, which is an amazing fact in itself. Such cute little FQs came with the package.
But the mug rug is an amazing creation in its own right. This is a Texas snowman (Mary is from Texas, obviously!) How do you know? Check out his hat! But I love the expression on his face and the detail of the quilting.
