Wow what a week
not only did I turn 40
I managed to get Audreys giveaway gift to her
and also receive a surprise present of my own!
I've only known Audrey a few months
and I have to say I admire her work immensely.
Its always challenging when picking someone to make a gift for
and then realising just how talented said person is!!
Like a little puppy hanging off the tail of a great dane!
I know Audrey wont mind being described in that way
because I think shes a bit silly, like me,
which is why I went out on a limb and called her mini
Audreys kookoo quilt,
purposefully leaving out an apostrophe for ambiguity.
Audrey is a traditional quilter who is currently evolving towards a modern slant,
which I love to see, so I tried to give her a mix.
The centre octagon was appliqued on to calm the trippy effect of those stripes
I think I managed to get both our personalities in this quilt,
the plaid binding was definitely an Audrey touch.
Another little one adopted out,
I think I should have a reunion one day with all my
minis that have flown the nest!
The very same day that I was shipping Audreys gift
all the way from Australia in a matter of days!
This perfectly beautiful LIBERTY union jack cushion cover
made by Susan is a wonderful addition to my home.
I love it thankyou so much Susan!!!!!!
ps. sorry I didnt wait for my birthday before opening my parcel
but come on would you wait??
This was a post of many names
Giving and receiving
What goes around comes around
Over the hill?
Or maybe my life truly beginning.
I'll let you decide
