Surprise in the mail

I found a lovely surprise in my mail box last week from the lovely Amy of happythings. It was a set of fabrics, buttons, ribbons and chocolates for Valentine´s Day. Thankyou Amy, how thoughtful! I was so inspired by how well the fabrics go with each other and immediately had to sew a pillow. I love how the black fabric stands out proudly amongst the patterns. My next finished project from The Crafter´s Companion is the book cover by Tania Ho (chocolateachuva). I mixed Amy´s fabrics with a couple of my own and it´s definately just the first of many book covers. I had such an AHA moment when I turned the cover inside out after sewing it, brilliant! It now adorns my organiser so I can admire it every day.

As always your creations are just so beautiful. Those colors are amazing! Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your encouragement. Spring is peeking out a bit in my corner of the world and that's always a very good thing for me. Can't wait to see what you make next!

so nice to see someone making it (and glad that the instructions worked after all ;). The combination is lovely

I so admire your skill in this area. Or should I say, I "sew" admire your skill in this area! You create such beautiful and happy things. (I can pretty much sew a button and maybe (maybe) a hem. That's it.)

You're very welcome and I'm not surprised that you've already used the fabrics! You're so speedy. I'm so glad they inspired you.
