It's a present for me from my sister Heleen. She made this bag from our mothers vest, read about it here.Thank you, thank you Heleen! You are my most favorite sister in the whole wide world!

There were some lovely surprises.
The first one came from Guðrún. She made me this beautiful little bag.

I think it will be a five year plan....but when it's finished it will look like this!!


And if you wonder, after seeing all these beautiful presents, how my face will look like! I'm walking around with a big smile on, all day long!

What beautiful gifts Corry, I adore that appliqued quilt, but yes it looks like it will be a long term project. Looking at the photo, do all the fabrics come pre-traced ready to cut out?

Jeanne said...

I'm happy to hear you had a good mail day filled with lots of surprises. I hope you keep smiling, Corry.

I understand you smiling from ear to ear. The quilt kit is so georgius, so is the bag from Gudrun.

Hoi Corry,

ik kan maar één dingetje zeggen, en dat is dat je een ongelofelijke bofkont bent!
;o)

en die handtekening is óók leuk!
