Four Seasons Winter Quilts

I had an email this morning from Lily in Australia to say to say that my 'Dancing Snowflakes' winter quilt had arrived safely - always a relief to hear something has reached its destination especially over such a long journey
Then after a trip into Taunton this morning for various shopping essentials like new rugby boots for DD1 and her impending regional match and birthday jeans for DD2's special day, both happening tomorrow, I came home to find a parcel on my doormat from Linda who is another Australian but now living in Oklahoma
And here it is my beautiful Winter quilt
I love the redwork (or should that read blackwork) snowmen and the snowflakes in metallic threads with tiny little seed beads worked on them
It's a delight and I shall treasure it
Now to keep a look out and sign up for the Spring leg

That is very sweet. The little beads make it.

It's beautiful isn't it? I love the little scene and all the hand work that went into it.

Funny that it's from an Aussie expat! These colonial links never break apparently :)

Wow the handwork is great. Yours is too. Ahem, mine, is shall we say, in need of a good deal of practise!

It's beautiful. I love the border fabric. How did the rugby go and did Sarah get to play?

oh ouch. hope it heals soon and that nick feels better too. Happy birthday to louise - at least she's not got nick's bug on her birthday - that would be much worse than sitting in the car during a rugby match...

I've signed up for the spring RR, too - perhaps we'll get to work on each other's pieces. :)
