I am going to make it these last two weeks. This little soccer player I am carrying makes walking (waddling) pretty dang uncomfortable. Checking the mail has become my go-to outing and I have some amazing friends who have made my entire week! First, I have to thank my friend Fiona from Poppy Makes for humoring this crazy girl and forwarding this gorgeous butter dish to me
Then, today’s mail brought me this beautiful pillow from Kerri over at LovelyLittleHandmades. Her blog is full of gorgeous eyecandy, but do I dare say this is my favorite thing she has ever made? It is a blessing to love the things you have, and I love that I have a beautiful pillow and a lovely new friend! I will post my half of the swap this weekend, I expect. Needless to say, it involves a bit of handwork as I am spending quite a lot of time couch-sitting.
The colors, the binding, all of it just makes me giddy with glee! Thank you, Kerri, for making (and parting with) such a beautiful pillow cover!
I love it and might struggle to part with it. For the back, I found this super soft Anna Maria Horner Flannel on sale at a LQS for half off. It is just so cuddly. I may need to go back and buy the rest of the bolt to back a quilt for me.
Any finishes or fun mail in your neck of the woods? Would love to know! (share a linky, pretty please? I am loving reading all of the fun blogs I discover through my comments!)
PS: I am linking up to Finish It Up Friday over at Crazy Mom Quilts!
