My Doll Quilt has finally arrived!!
Made for me by Cara of Quiltnookgal and it came all the way from the USA. There were all sorts of problems with the mail, at Cara's end to start with and then at my end as it got taken to my old adress and then ended up sitting in a parcelforce depot (lost and alone!) until I tracked it down on Thursday (thanks to all the help from our fab swapmama Solidia).
I have been waiting days to get a decent photo of the quilt, but the sun just won't come out! Very depressing, and I can't wait any longer to share it with you. So apologies for the dark photos.
Here is the lovely umbrella fabric on the back and the binding.
Here are some close ups of the beautiful yo yo flowers and the jumbo ric rac stem (so creative!).
Amazing fabric which I love, braids, chocolate, lovely buttons and beads and wooden clothes pegs. And to top it all off, this adorable owl pincushion!
I think I need a special pincushion shelf to display all my lovely pincushions (this owl, the frieda ones from the last swap, the apple from Marg).
Well that is DQS9 all over for me now, which is a bit sad as I have loved taking part in it. Next round starts after Christmas so here's hoping I get a chance to join in again.
