First block in was this wonderful telephone box from Amber One Shabby Chick. Look at the union jack handle and the Big Ben on the dome! These are mostly disappearing with the advent of a newer sleeker (uglier) design oh phonebox in the 80s or 90s and of course with the advent of mobile phones. They also smelled of wee and had lots of little advertising cards in for ladies offering all sorts of services but we still love these phones boxes.
Next came Corey Little Miss Shabby with a perfect little original mini with my name on the number plate. We used to drive around in one of these with Granny Smith whose main driving philosophy was that only bad drivers used the brakes - more skilled ones like her managed without - we were airborne sometimes.
Next up was Lucinda with the classic plastic chair. Lucinda is known for her chair blocks so it was fitting that she made me this one.
And then yesterday in the post, I received this marvel from Kerry, verykerryberry, one of the most talented current modern British quilters as far as I am concerned. It's a Mary Quant dress - the pocket on the dress really is a pocket and look at the detail of the inside of the neck of the dress with the stitching. Stunning and perfectly pieced. I had a red dress which was kind of like this but was made of a wool, had short sleeves and a polo neck so you weren't quite sure when to wear it. On a sunny day you boiled because it was made of wool but in the winter your arms were freezing. That's what I don't get about fashion.
Kerry also sent me two hexagons for my hexalong together with some wonderful Lakehouse fabrics to add into the mix. Look at the printed details on the first hexagon. Thank you so much Kerry, what a wonderful package of goodies.
