Things the Postman Delivered
I said I'd take them off her hands to make hospice quilts and the parcel that arrived today contained this beautiful set of blocks plus a generous sized piece of the focus fabric. There are more than a dozen blocks, and I believe I can turn them into a lovely quilt for a hospice patient.
a most satisfactory quilt that became a wedding gift.
Generous Kathy B sent not one but two big pieces of coordinating fabric; one will be enough to be a back and the other will set the blocks into another terrific hospice quilt, this one, I think, for a gentleman.
Anya and I entered into a maker's choice kind of a swap, to be completed before year's end.
Anya's part of the bargain is complete -- she sent me this wonderful handbag that is so autumn without being blatant autumn with orange and brown leaves all over it. Look at the care she put into this project! And these aren't Anya's regular colors!
There's a magnetic clasp and this sweet side pocket with a darling yo-yo. I started carrying it on the first chilly day.
My part of the bargain will be fulfilled, too. Before year's end!
Thanks so much, Kathy!
