My dolls quilt from the DQS 10 arrived a few days ago. And I will admit I have been busy with Grace's birthday and the unexpected but lovely arrival of the in-laws to stay for a week and so I am only getting around to blogging all it's beauty now! It is from a lovely lady called Marilyn and when I opened it up there were lots of ohhhh's and ahhh's of excitment!
I opened the box to see all this beautifully wrapped parcels. Everything was colour coordinated and a little note explaining how she saw all the pink and orange in my photos and it gave her the idea of a California sunset. The colours she has used are just stunning.
She even sent the girls a bundle of goodies too which was very sweet. Very, very sweet. These girls love these swaps more than I do as they usually seem to score something in the package for them! I don't expect this, I think the stunning quilt is enough, but it is always a lovely, touching thing to do. Thank you Marilyn. x
And I got goodies too! Marilyn is from California and so she enclosed a beautifully photographed book on California. And she had made a mix tape of all these songs about California! Classic tracks like California Girls and Hotel California. It is great! But wait, there is more! Also a lovely bundle of fat quarters by Anna Griffin from her Riley Collection.
One last shot.... *sigh* Lovely! Thank you again Marilyn!
