Today people I'm deliriously happy. Why? you all might be asking. Well because I arrived home today after a meeting to be greeted by a rather large package waiting for me.
Now normally I'm not overly competitive but last night I admitted to Ethne(flamingstitches), whom I rent a room from, that I would like my quilt to arrive first in the post and low and behold it has arrived first.
First of all I would like to thank Terri(territee) for the most fantastic quilt. It is absolutely stunning. Terri also sent me a bar of galaxy chocolate, a smarties egg, a badge with a sewing machine on it, a packet of poppy 'meadow pastel' seeds, a set of embroidery needles( always useful thank you very much) and a fat quarter of the most beautiful butterfly material.
I would also like to say that the photos that territee posted on flickr of this quilt were beautiful and I liked this quilt right from the start but these photos do not do this quilt justice because as beautiful, colourful and as artistic as was shown in real life it is even more stunningly wonderful , gorgeous and picture perfect in real life.
I am planning in a few weeks time to start decorating my room and I can say without hesitation that this quilt will be getting pinned up on display once my room is complete. It is without doubt a real work of art.
Anyway I would like to thank Terri again for all the time, effort and love that she has obviously put into this quilt and hopefully it won't be too long before we have another Brit Quilt Swap.
