Swap Surprise!!

Whoo-hooo -- I'm doing the Happy Dance tonight! My Winter swap quilt came, and I love it! My swap partner Darlene from Quilting Daze made it and I'm so tickled with it, I can't even tell you. I can never remember what this pattern is called, but it's always captivated me -

I love the graphicness of it - (is that a word?) and the illusion, the color play. And the snow men are too adorable, and the bright colors are right up my alley. Now here's the funny part. I'm a regular lurker over on the Surface of the Sun without doing too much commenting. (blush) A week or so ago, she showed this darling set of shelf sitters that had just arrived in her mail from Collections, Etc and I fell madly in love, just HAD to have 'em. I clicked on her link and ordered them immediately.
Are you ready for this? They arrived in todays mail, along with Darlene's little quilt! I just think that's so COSMIC!!! ROFL - I had no idea she was making me a quilt! Darlene -- THANK YOU!!!! You've made my day!

Cute, cute quilt!!! It is Cosmic to say the least that the shelf sitters came the same day. I think they are adorable too. I started to order them, and then changed my mind. I don't have any space to put them. If you get tired of that quilt, I know a good home for it, lol.

Wow, that's definitely very cosmic! :-)

I'm really glad that you like your little quilt - the pattern is Convergence by Ricky Timms. I especially like it because it's the "convergence" of friendship through blogging!

Your sewing sitters are as cute as mine. teehee! Now, stop lurking on my blog and leave a comment once in a while. :-)

Oh, wow! Lucky you to get a quilt made by Darlene! She is amazing. And the shelf sitters are so darn cute--I've been contemplating those myself....

The quilt is just wonderful. My snowmen stay out all year long, I love them. I'm a winter kind of girl, so seeing those snowmen in the heat of summer remind me that winter's a-comin'! LOL.

The shelf sitters are so cute. Enjoy!
