Friday I received happy post!!! This happy post had come all the way from Australia for the Scrappy Swap on Flickr, and was bursting at the cardboard seams so I immediately opened it up and I found this little fella:
Isn't he gorgeous! This wall hanging is a piece of art! The fox has felt patches on his neck and tail so it is really nice and tactile! I adore it! Look at the fabric in the tree - totally perfect! The quilting is tremendous and I am in awe how Happy Go Lizzie managed to do the stitching so perfectly around the fox and birds. Those birds have the best legs!
I was well 'stalked' because I had this type of bird and tree in my inspiration mosaic!! Gina even sent BUTTONS and most of you already know that yes, I do like a button or two!!! She sent a local item too -some chocolate biscuit things called TimTam's. I accidentally ate two of these before I got home to take a photo of everything!! They are pretty yummy!
And because it was a scrap swap, she sent me this pile of scrappy goodness with a special pile of DS fabrics too - so awesome!! I mean - Denise!? Wow I am a lucky girl! I will be using every single one of the scraps she sent (and she sent more than a FQ - shhh - don't tell swap mama)!
What a great way to end the week!! I am one happy camper and have now ironed my foxy wall hanging and am looking for a stick to put in it to hang it asap. Thank you Happy Go Lizzie - you sent me the most wonderful parcel! You truly spoiled me x
