gifts from friends

I was so happy to find this absolutely gorgeous potholder in my mailbox recently! I don’t think anything could be better than flea market fancy and hexagons!


It was made for me by the extremely talented Chris, of Izzy Inspired. I had a chance to meet Chris in person while I was in California this Spring. We share a love of quilting, Flea Market Fancy, and also a love of hexagons.


And take a closer look at the handstitching – amazing! Not a single visible stitch between those hexagons! (I’m still trying to figure out her technique!)

Thank you ever so much Chris for such a fabulously thoughtful gift! It makes me smile each time I enter the kitchen.


Now this one isn’t technically a gift, but rather a giveaway win, but I think I’m going to continue thinking it was made just for me! I loved it as soon as I saw this cute little mini quilt over on Krista’s blog, Spotted Stones, and then when I found out she was giving it away, I had my name in the hat in no time! I was thrilled to find that I had won – this little quilt is just fabulous!


I can’t wait to find the perfect spot for it on my sewing room wall. It is the perfect first mini quilt for my mini quilt wall! Thanks Krista!

And here’s a quick shot of what I’ve been working on…


Yay for new summer clothes!
