Lucky Me

Arrived home from work yesterday afternoon to find this parcel waiting on the bench:


Inside was this fabulous covered folder from Peg; beautiful Polka Dot Girls stitchery on the front:

The back:

Inside the folder were these: 



Thank you so much Peg - definitely a lovely, lovely surprise.

Last night I had a go at making this week's Sylvia's Bridal Sampler blocks.  I thought we would ease into the more difficult blocks but no, Dear Diann chose 2 blocks for this week - one (New Mexico) a nightmare, such tiny pieces and I haven't done much foundation piecing.  Some repairs need to be made to this block.  Many lessons will be learned while making these blocks.


The other (Yankee Puzzle) was easier, although I have chosen fabrics with not enough contrast:

You are a very lucky girl! Peg had posted photos of the journal this morning so I knew before you, LOL.
You will get heaps of use out of the package. The blocks look really lovely, Lynda - the first one might have been a trial, but end results are great!

Lovely folder, I was admiring it on Peg's site and your Sylvia blocks are gorgeous, what's the finished size?

Diann said...

Your New Mexico looks great! What adjustments? Mine is still sitting in 84 pieces in the sewing room! Need to gird my loins and top up with some red before I revisit that baby! Your folder from Peg is just beautiful and it will be so handy. Lucky you!

You won the Jackpot! What lovely gifts!!

I started my Sylvia's Bridal Sampler last weekend, I forgot to post a photo. My plan is to make a block a week and do them in order.

Your blocks look great. That crazy New Mexico block looks like one of my Insane blocks. You did a great job.

What a beautiful folder! Such a lovely surprise from Peg, I am sure you will treasure (and use) the folder, glasses/rotary cutter case and the needlebook.
Oh my, I don't envy you with the tiny foundation pieceing. The Dear Jane blocks are looking fantastic!
