Lucky Girl - London, the Goodies post

Whilst I posted about classes and people, I have not yet shown you all the lovely goodies I brought back from London.

I was lucky to receive gifts from fabulous swap partners;
A gorgeous bag made by Tacha (Hanies) with a union jack pincushion and one of the new minis that have just come on the market! (not pictured some scrumptious chocolate.. you make guess why not :-). Trash (Trashalou) made a London Bus pin cushion wrapped in cutesie tiny Red Robin box. Karen (Listen to the Birds sing)had sewn us all a lovely FQ pass with lovely postage stamp paper inside and include a lovely card. Last but not least, Leanne, who has recently had such a success with her quilt "Red" gave us all a mini Red. Isn't it lovely? Thank you guys for making such fabulous swap items, I will treasure them forever!

Of course thanks goes also to the great sponsors of FQ London. You can see Aurifil threads there (I always wanted to try those!) a mini pack of 'Walk in the Woods' (whoop whoop!!) Robert Kaufman threw in the London Fabric, so appropriate! and a lovely FQ from Oakshott Fabrics and a £5 off online voucher amongst others. What a goodie bag, fantastic!

As my friend Dee surprised me by turning up unexpectedly (nothing more said about that.. ahum...) I did not have anything for her, but she has brought me another lovely mini quilt and some really fun fabric. What a surprise! Thanks Dee !!

...and... she had more goodies in her bag too. A online fellow Old Red Barn quilter who I had not written with for a while, had (in spite of losing recent contact) thought of me and asked Dee to take a little parcel across the oceans for her. Greta (Gretters) sent me these lovely bright FQ's and a notebook with a Kate Spain design on the cover. Thanks Greta! That was also a surprise and much appreciated!

As my son and his girlfriend gifted me a little spending money (knowing I would like to take home the whole fabric shop!) I also bought some goodies for myself, but that will have to wait to another post! See you all soon!

Lovely loot Marg, what fun it must have been. I'm in Brit mode at the moment as I'm making a double bed size Union Jack quilt for grandson #2 (he'll be 16 in August) so I'm flying the flag so to speak.. ;o)
