Thank you Anne!!!

My friend Anne is sooooo generous! Look at these beautiful Easter baskets she sent for my children!! Needless to say, Viola and Ask were excited! A blue one for Ask and a pink one for Viola :)
Stuffed full of goodies, candy, a moomin scarf for each of them and felted eggs! They were running around ecstatically. LOL.

I have been so busy lately, that I have had a really hard time making Easter special for the kids...but Anne really saved the day! Here are their baskets all the goodies and the moomin scarves.
And Anne had packed some treats for me as well! Look at these stunning fabrics. The pirates will be perfect for the pirate quilt I hvae planned for Ask, and the birds..........ooooooh the birds!
That is such a stunning print, I can't even begin to tell you how much I adore it.

And last -but not least- there was this really really sweet figurine in the package too..
She is such a treasure!

I love everything, Thank you so much Anne!! You are truly amazing :)

Pay It Forward from Jackie

When I came back from my parents house, there was a package waiting for me at our post office.... And it was my package from Jackie!!!
I was so excited I could hardly wait until I came back home to open it :) is AMAZING!! Jackie sent me a wonderful quilt! It is so beautiful, I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love it!
She also sent me some great green fabric, yellow giant ric-rac, a glass-pin chocolate, but that's gone already :(
The quilting is an awesome paisley and flowers pattern, it is so full of detail, I have tried to get some shots of it here, but I am afraid my camera is not really doing it justice.... Here's part of the back of the quilt, she pieced the back -it's so beautiful!
This is the front of my new favourite quilt, there are some great fabrics in here! And look at the colors, so fresh and summer-y.
Thank you so much Jackie! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
