I opened it up and found this package of total awesomeness....
I had been seriously hoping this little beauty was for me - and it is! It's even better in real life. And it was made by none other than Faith of Fresh Lemons. How lucky am I? I am so completely in love with it, it is perfect colours and so beautifully made. I just need to decide where to hang it... She sent me a lovely (huge) piece of deep purple solid fabric (not sure but I think it's Art Gallery solid - it has a very different hand to Kona, very soft and supple) and some dark grey Gutermann thread (which I recently ran out of, so that's perfect too!)
The other parcels are lovely, but how can they compare with such brilliant swap items? First was my bundle of Hello Pilgrim prints from Sew Fresh Fabrics. Despite my obsession with Lizzy House, I decided to just get some of the stripes (blue and orange), jewel prints (some of my favorite solid alternatives) and pearl bracelet in aqua and green. Plus there is a yard of Just Wing it there (the top one).
And the third package was a bundle from Sew Fabulous Quilt Shop. I'm a sucker for a sale, and these were all 50% off so they were a total bargain. There's lots of Wrenly by Valorie Wells (which I'd been eyeing off for ages - especially love the bird print, so cute!) and Central Park by Kate Spain (my favorite of her lines) and a bit of Happy Mochi Yum Yum in pink, and some of the cathedral windows from Fly a Kite.
So awesome fabricy-goodness all around.
