three snows after the forsythia blooms.
Well, the forsythia hasn't bloomed here in central Ohio yet, but I say Spring HAS ARRIVED!
Here's the reason why:
I shared last week or so about joining in
a Spring mini-quilt swap with an online group that I'm in.
I also shared about all my fun in making the little 'Spring Argyle' quilt that I sent off...
Well, I can barely contain myself,
All the way from Deb in Toronto, Canada!
Deb named it "Spring Bulbs". Isn't that so perfect?!
I love the colors & fabrics & it's a BASKET block!, which I also love.
I so love the pinks,
and that she hand-quilted little butterflies in the corners,
and she also put hanging-corner-pockets on the back!
Can you tell that I like it? A lot?
And if that's not enough quilty-love (and exclamation points),
Deb was so sweet to send a little something extra:
|Can you see the quilted butterflies|
to the left of the mini charm pack?
A great big thank you, Deb, for your very beautiful, kind and generous gift.
This swap was SO MUCH FUN!, and a big Thanks goes out to Karen for facilitating!
So, have you participated in swaps of finished items before?
I was leery of joining in because of my time constraints, but it worked out well.
And such Spring beauty arrived at my door!
I may go looking for some forsythia to force into bloom
to sit beside my new little quilt. :)
