Super special treat!



Aren't quilters just the greatest? Of course!

Awhile back I got an email from someone in Iceland who was interested in one of my patterns. On a side note, how cool is that? Iceland!

So I sent it off and to my amazement, she sent something back to me! It's this wonderful book full of darling bags to make. Apparently there are no published Icelandic quilt books--this is Danish--Iceland used to be a Danish colony.

All I know is the book is absolutely lovely and I am thoroughly enjoying looking at the photographs and trying to figure out some of the writing. It was also such a sweet, wonderful gesture and pretty much made my week!

Thank you so much, Halldora!

Darling book. Next to making quilts I love to make bags.

I started my Vintage Christmas Quilt and put the beginnings of it on my blog today.

Hey Elizabeth! Sorry, I'm a little behind in my blog reading and more than a little behind in posting on my own blog! Where does the time go! Anyway, "lucky duck" is exactly what I was thinking too! I know how you feel, I had a lady send me a quilt book from France once and I love it! Even though I don't understand much of it, it is FABULOUS!! Your room is coming along nicely, can't wait to see it! Talk to you soon!
