I never fail to be surprised at what a kind bunch bloggers are. I know Kaelin (The Plaid Scottie) from the original Modern Swappers group on Flickr- now Make Mine Modern, and from Bee (a little bit Japanese) quilting bee. She said she had bought something thinking of me and I was so nicely surprised to receive this a few days ago.
In my Bee month I had sent Kaelin a scrap of scottie dog fabric in with the block fabrics and in return she had included a bit of giant strawberry print in her block which was very cute. This parcel was out of the blue for me and so pretty. Beautiful napkins and the cutest felt mini clothespins. Kaelin is such a kind person generally and I felt really touched that she had thought of this for me. Her blog is a lovely mix of humour, fabric and crafty makes- this is a particularly funny post.
Plus, I returned home today from a trip visiting Damian's family to this little goodie from Amelie's recent giveaway.
I haven't been able to do my usual blog reading so this was a total surpise I didn't know I had won! Check out this wonderful block she did for the Bee Europa quilt bee.
If you are a UK quilter like Amelie and me, how about joining the Brit Quilt group on Flickr, open to any UK dwelling stitchy quilt makers, you might find a like minded quilter on your doorstop, or just find more online fabric fixated friends.
And a last minute request- I am thinking of getting a Blackberry phone- any recommendations which type? I would like to be able to blog on it as well as emails, and internet browsing.
