The Post Man Cometh!

Here is the lovely doll quilt I received from Debbie in Lori's Doll Quilt Swap.  Thank you so much Debbie!  Your workmanship is lovely and the big primitive wool flower is really fun and adds such a great touch of whimsy the quilt.


She sent a lovely card that matches the color of the quilt.  Debbie put a nice label on it and a sleeve too.  You can see the nice meandering quilting.


I was doubly lucky yesterday.  My friend, Susan, gave me this beautiful bird pin that she made!  The stitching is exquisite!  I need to find a new spring coat for it.


Hanna found this tiny nest in the park on a dog walk.  You can see the single silver hair across the front.  I am always amazed at how well made this tiny dwellings are.

Thanks again Debbie, Lori and Susan.

  9. I have been seeing those little doll quilts on different blogs. Looks like a fun exchange. Yours is really pretty.
    Cute bird pin. I agree about the bird nests. Amazing how they build them and each one is a little different depending on what bird built it.
