Spring swap comes to an wonderful end!

Look at these beauties I found in the garden this morning...

I am extremely arachnophobic, but even I can see the miracle in these newly hatched babies...mostly because they hatched OUTSIDE!! We are all overjoyed at our new arrival--my swap quilt from dear Cathi in Toronto (you can also find her over here.) I don't know how she knew, it must have been fate, but I have always admired the workmanship behind the Grandmother's flower garden pattern--but I know that I don't have it in myself to do. I am so happy that now I can look at this little beauty, done marvelous Asian prints, and treasure it. It was made just for me! Thanks SO much Cathi!! I walked around all day (quite a few people dropped by this day) and showed it off. To every one I said "DO you want to see the quilt I received in my swap??" Before they had a chance to answer I ran off to get it...everyone deserves to see this wonderful quilt. Cathi also sent me some fabric (I love receiving fabric) and a beaded scissor fob and a notebook--it was like a birthday, where I got just what I wanted!!!
She also made a beautiful pieced label...WOW!
I am feeling that I am living a blessed swap life...
I will do this swap again, despite my own handwork insecurities, it is run very well and I enjoy meeting all these new quilting friends.
