Such a treat!

Look what arrived from Australia today!

Here is the lovely item that was inside:

I won a contest over at Lily’s gorgeous blog. Can you believe she sent this TO ME? Look at all this stitching!

Shhhh…the baby is sleeping.

Thank you SO much, Lily! I am just entranced by all of your pretty stitches. The fact that Lily would share this work is the sign of a very generous soul!

On the flying geese front, I have the center of the top finished. Yes, um, I did decide that I preferred the “erroneous” geese to the correct geese. The puffball geese gave it better visual consistency, if you will. I think I’ve decided that this now needs a small border and then a surround of more geese.

Well, I would stick around to entertain (?) you longer, but I’m having very annoying WordPress issues. We had been getting along OK after recent dashboard changes, but now something has apparently been “upgraded” beyond my compatibility…or my patience.

    p.s. – the quilt top looks fantastic and I’m with you on the flying geese – their determined path would have become muddled if you’d used scrappy centres. What are you going to do with it?

    Well, I’m with the general consensus… your quilt is great! I like the colors, they really make it nice.
    Guess you will need to find a special spot for your new friend! Have you thought of a name for her yet? Or did she come already named? She looks quite Norwegen to me. Very pretty, isn’t it nice to have such talented and generous friends! Of course, the fact that your so nice just goes to show the reason’s why she sent it to you.
    Keep us the good work. Jean C.
