Received!

I received my Modernista swap package this week, and I couldn't be more thrilled with it! Safiya Alyse made my gifts.

Lovely little note

Would you look at this quilting??

Safiya made me a sewing machine cover with wonky stars, and each area is separately quilted! Wowza.

Received: Starry Sewing Machine Cover

It fits in with the rest of my colorful mini quilts I've received from friends.

Received!

She also sent me this fun project bag (from Ayumi's lunch bag tutorial. I just love the texty print she used! Yes, this will work very well to carry my knitting about!

Sometimes, signing up for a public swap can be a little risky, and you aren't guaranteed to love what you receive. But sometimes, the person works hard to make something you will love and enjoy, and it's clear Safiya put so much care into these fun things. Her quilting is inspiring! I need to start practicing some FMQ...

Thank you again, Safiya!
