Well finally in amongst the twenty trillion giveaways I've entered, I was chosen by Mr Random Generator and won a prize to cherish. Firstly because it came from the blog of mother and daughter quilting and blogging team, Yvonne and Reene, Nellies Niceties who are two British quilting and crafting blogland friends who make me laugh with their constant comedy banter. And secondly, because, as much as we all drool over the fabric bundles that can be won on the internet, there is something very special about winning a hand made pillow and a pack of Liberty charms which were hand cut and picked (and Liberty...). Here is the pillow which the cats and the kids have been fighting over. It is my first ever handmade pillow, made by a friend and I confess I really, really love it. The brown dot is my favorite Kaffe fabric and the pillow is soft and cost with beautiful pebble quilting and matches my sofa and cat!
And just take a look at these Liberty charms. I am going to pair these up with a Kona charm pack and some Kona white to make some kind of postage stamp type quilt. Up until now, I have never had any Liberty fabrics (other than a Liberty bridesmaids dress when I was little which I will show you when I can find the photo in amongst the boxes that are still waiting to be unpacked since we moved house three years ago) so this is a very special prize for me.
Thank you Yvonne and Reene for making my day with these wonderful prizes.
