International Gifts

My talented friend, Edith, who lives in Switzerland, surprised me with this beautiful ACT (Artist Trading Card). Her work is always original, and often richly embellished and dimensional. She's especially fond of threads, and uses them to great affect. Gorgeous!
Though these cards are meant to be traded, I have yet to make one. And look how many she has made for me! Thank you, Edith! Happy holidays to you too!

I recently won a pattern giveaway from Helen of Hugs 'n Kisses in Australia. This 56" X 56" quilt, "Larapops" was designed by Helen's daughter. Happily, the pattern includes 20 Floriani Stitch n' Wash circles to help make applique easier. Thank you for this nice gift, Helen!

  4. The ATC is wonderful, I've never made one either but I can imagine that it'd be fun. Lucky you with your win, it's a nice small kit.
