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!


  1. The tin and fabric are lovely.
    Hope you have fun making a quilt.

  2. Happy mail is quite simply the best ... and a quilt sounds like a perfect idea ... happy stitching ... Bee xx

  3. With these colors it might be a perfect spring quilt. Looking forward to see your work.
