Yesterday evening when I got in very late from work, I found a big envelope waiting for me. I pulled it open straight away and did a little dance right there in the hall. Look what I got!
My package came from Elaine (Dashasel) who, funnily enough, was my partner for the Scrappy Mug Rug Swap last year where I made her a rainbow hexie mug rug. I really had fun making that for her, so it was nice that we were paired up in the opposite direction this time.
I will be honest and admit that when I saw this popping up in the group pool I really hoped it was for me as I had asked for a laptop sleeve, and I just loved the colours and the design. When I got it into my hands, I was totally thrilled, it's beautifully made and quilted, and it's a perfect fit for my laptop.
Don't you love the interlocking stripes? And the quilting? I love how cool the design is, and it's in my fave solid colours too - aqua, pomegranate, coal and ash. You can see how nice and snug a fit it is for my laptop, just perfect :-)
Elaine also sent me a gorgeous covered mod bloom notebook :
Isn't this pretty? I need a fresh notebook for my project ideas and this is perfect! Plus, the pages are squared, rather than lined, bonus for the quilting plans!
And, I admit I gave a little extra squeal when I saw this little bundle of DS fabrics:
It's so hard to get hold of these from here in Ireland, so I am thrilled!
All in all, this was a great swap (again!) I really love working with solids, they push you to think about your design differently. For the 2nd time I have been super lucky in what I received with a really fab, generous swap package that I love and I couldn't be happier. Thanks so much Elaine, I am thrilled!
