In addition to the lovely bag and wallet
and needle holder that Sheila made for me, as part of our swap,
I was surprised with this awesome autographed copy of
Amy Garro's book "Paper Pieced Modern", a gift from my beautiful friend Karen of KaHolly. She visited QuiltCon in Texas this past winter and thought of me when she saw this book, knowing full well I would adore it! How special that she had Amy autograph it just for me.
I have already chosen the top two designs that I want to make.
|I think I already have most of the Konas suggested in the pattern to make this one|
Today, Karen sent me a photo of the KitchenAid cover that I made for her as my part of the swap. It fits perfectly! Yay! She loves it!
I don't think I ever shared how Karen came to own this Mixer. Well....She wanted a KitchenAid and I wanted a Featherweight....and.....I owned a KitchenAid and she owned a Featherweight....so....we traded! I never liked my KitchenAid and hardly used it so when the subject of me wanting a FW and Karen wanting a KA, well it just worked out perfectly, We are both happy. Now I need to make a cover for my Featherweight...Ok...I need to make three covers! lol
I hope you had time to do something quilty today!
