Goodies from far away

Yesterday as I was walking out the door to meet my sewing group "Seams like Sisters" for a little holiday gathering, hubby walked in with the mail. And I had a package from Maria in Australia! I opened it up right away of course! Look at this wonderful mini spools quilt she sent for me to hang in my sewing room! I just love the strip pieced spools and the darling sewing border fabric! Maria also included this adorable fat quarter. Christmas Kookaburras! Who knew?

I don't know if I will ever be able to cut into this beauty! Maybe it will become a pretty Christmas pillow for my couch so I can enjoy it in all it's splendor? I think that would be best.


Thank you so much Maria! You really know how to make a girl's day!

Spools are really cute! And I think you are right. A pillow for the couch with the birdie fabric.
