Doll Quilt Swap Recieved!!!

And I could NOT be happier!

DQS8 Rec'd: AMAZING Owl Mini From Karen!!
Isn't this just absolutely amazing?!?!? It's from Karen at Badlands Quilts. She did the MOST amazing job with this- every part of it is perfect, and perfect for ME! I was crying and dancing at the same time when I opened this... the postmistress must have thought I was completely insane, because I opened it standing in the post office :)

DQS8 Rec'd: Owl At Home
Isn't he cute? I must find out what that amazing brown fabric she used for the binding is... I just love it!

DQS8 Rec'd: Back
Even the back is lovely, with that cute owl for a label!

DQS8 Rec'd: Lovely Extras!
Karen sent some lovey fabric too, including a piece of gold! Er, I mean, a piece of "Lush" paint-by-number fabric. That fabric is impossible to find and I'm so happy that I now have a little piece of it in my stash!

Thank you, Karen, thank you, thank you, thank you! I actually prayed that this one would come to me when I first saw it in the Doll Quilt Swap pool on Flickr! And now it's mine!

Now I need to find the perfect place to hang it...

  2. You are one lucky gal....what a mail day...I would be doing the dance too!!
