I have a very special blogging friend called Chrissie. It's one of those friendships that has just grown and grown and although we've never met, (yet!) I feel like we know each other really well already. We are always sharing quilting tips and ideas; or should I say Chrissie shares and I listen, she is such a wonderful wealth of knowledge I don't think there's anything I could teach her that she doesn't already know! (Do check out her blog, it really is fabulous, and there's some great tutorials too).
So anyway, about a month ago, a huge parcel landed on my doorstep with a New York stamp on it. Bundles of fabric do land on my doorstep rather frequently, as I always purchase online, but I was pretty sure I hadn't placed an international order recently...
Oh my goodness what a wonderful surprise. As well as a beautiful card, there was a Flying Geese Block Lock (a really great gadget to ensure perfect geese every time) and not just a bit of fabric, but a mountain of fabric. And not just any old fabric. Oh no. Only some exclusive New York fabric only available at The City Quilter!!!
I can't tell you how excited I am to get started on making this quilt.
And guess who this quilt is going to be for...yes me! I am going to sit on it and under it and wrap around it, and think my friendship with Chrissie, and all the wonderful people I have met online through this thing called quilting.
Thank you once again Chrissie for such a special gift, I love it, and I'm so happy to have met you. I just hope I can do it justice.
