lucky mail: vintage fabric in a romantic old tin from Australia
It felt like Christmas came early when this beautiful treasure tin got delivered to me after a long journey all the way from down under.
A while ago I was the lucky reader in Rebecca's giveaway. Rebecca blogs over at Naughty Shorts - about her life and small business, vintage cotton prints and the beautiful dresses she designs and makes out of them. Her home, which is filled to the brim with envy-inducing vintage finds, is often featured on her blog too.
I was very lucky to receive a bundle of fat quarters of vintage printed cottons, and some other goodies that'd make any girl jump for joy.
Looking at these fabrics together inspire me to make a quilt of some kind - I have never tried my hand at quilting before but I think I'd really enjoy the hand-stitching aspect of it. I'll mull over the idea, but in the meantime if you have any suggestions or even quilting tips for me, I'd love to hear them!
