I'm so lucky!
A few weeks ago Linda showed the most beautiful quilt on her blog. I'd been following the progress of this quilt for quite some time and had fallen in love with it long before I ever saw the finished article. The quilt is made up of 23 small stitchery blocks from a book called Flowerbed by Australian designer Bronwyn Hayes .
When the quilt was finished Linda generously offered to put the names of everyone who left a comment on the quilt into a draw for the pattern book. I was just desperate to win that book and it must have been my lucky day because it was my name that came out as winner of the draw! I was just so excited.
When I finally received a card from the post office letting me know there was something for me to collect I couldn't get there fast enough!
I was puzzled when I found myself signing for a BIG box that was lightweight for the size of it. I tore into the box and imagine my total surprise when I saw Linda had sent me not only the book but one of the gorgeous craft totes that she makes.
There's a free pattern for this bucket tote on one of the blogs out there. I'd been planning on having a go at making one but I know without a doubt that I could never have made anything half as nice as this one.
The bag is beautifully made in such pretty fabrics and it has little flower buttons sprinkled over it. I'm just thrilled to have it. Thank you so much Linda!
