I am still waiting to hear from my gift recipient for the Covert Robin swap to make sure she received and liked the goodies I sent her, but here are pictures of what I sent (set of 4 quilted coasters with matching bag and a quilted & embroidered envelope pouch of my own design):
I’ll post again when I hear from her. **Update: I received a note from McKinzie of “Pastries, MKTs, and Kitty Cats! Oh my!” and she said she liked the handmade gifts I sent her. I picked the envelope style bag because she is in the military and I had a friend in the army who said letters just made the service people’s day. So I thought she could keep special letters or whatever goodies she wanted in it. The coasters were because, well, who can’t use more coasters? I am glad to hear she liked them!
And now, here’s the simply gorgeous handmade goodies I received!! The quilting on the cushion cover is so beautiful, and Tabatha at Bending Pins obviously knew I love birds. I love the colors, the fabrics, the flower shapes, and the bird– in short, everything about this. I am in awe of her craftsmanship. As if the cushion cover wasn’t enough, she also included this super sweet little zippered bag and a piece of Japanese fabric, which now I have to think of a project worthy of its cuteness.
I am really looking forward to looking around Tabatha’s blog more. I already discovered this post she just did about patchwork skirts, which I am smitten with. Go check out Tabatha’s blog yourself and be smitten, too!
