Quilt from Krista!

A few months ago, the amazingly talented Krista and I decided to do a little private swap. I have been reading her blog for a while, she lives in a fairy tale land of snow at the moment which is a world away from the red dirt and heat outside my back door. My quilt to her arrived last week and this beauty from Krista arrived this week! I was eyeing off this one she had made that was similar, but this one I received I love more!!

Look at her stitching! I think I can do an okay button whole stitch but I am in awe of those who can do straight stitches and flowers! I love how the colors graduate down, very pretty!

Her stitches are perfect! Just perfect.

And look at the label! She made me laugh out aloud with her reference to snow forts. In a recent meme I admitted I didn't want to build a snow fort and she got stuck into me in that blog comment!

And she spoilt me with some Christmas fabric. And there were some alphabet wrist bands for the girls but they have vanished with delight into their bedrooms before I could snap them!

Thank you so much Krista, your a great blogging buddy, it was a great swap. :)

You've made me blush. Glad you like your new mini! The one you sent me is receiving rave reviews from everyone who sees it on my office door. I took it to guild last week and the gals LOVED your FMQing.♥

Oh Helen that makes me seriously envious. So pretty that's for sure.
Gives me an idea too. :)

And how great that the quilt you made is being admired in a far away country.

What a LOVELY quilt (and label).

It is dark gray out, chilly, almost rainy, and very windy here today . . . this little quilt is a breath of fresh air!
