That flower on the tie is a handmade wooly brooch that has already gone to live on my dad's old jeans jacket. The greens blend perfectly with my scarf and gloves.
Inside the package were 6 machine embroidered linen blocks featuring characters from Alice in Wonderland and 6 silk roses.
An idea for making a quilt with these blocks is already starting to form in my head. I wonder if I can have it done in time for this summer's quilt show….
There was also a fun piece of frog fabric in the package. It's begging to be cut into so it may not live in the frog fabric bin for very long (yes, I have a huge stash of frog fabrics).
I'm glad these things arrived in time for me to be able to take them to my small group meeting tomorrow and show them off. I'll have to keep a very close eye on them to make sure my friend Alice doesn't end up going home with the blocks or the frog fabric! 8:-)
