Woohoo I got spoiled.

Today I received my Spring Quaker exchange from Edgar from the SBEBB. I am so blessed! He made me this gorgeous pinkeep with lace edging and he truely spoiled me by sending me three charts off my wishlist, four threads, some lovely fabric and a tin of altoids!! The charts are: LHN Coffee Menu, Sampler Cove's Grace Quaker Sampler and Ink Circles' Quackworth. I have been looking for altoids to get the tin so I can make something with it but not been able to find any over here. Now I just need to find a little design to put on it. I'll also need to find some finishing instructions too. Thank you so much Edgar. I am thrilled!

Oh, Hazel, Edgar did a wonderful stitch for you. It's so pretty. I love the colors. Did he tell you what threads he used? I'd love to know.

WOW what a stunning exchange! You are so lucky!!!!

I found Altoids at Morrisons supermarket on the sweetie aisle! 99p for a tin, they are just the plain mint variety but with the tin at least I don't suppose it matters :)

Email me if you can't find them and I can see if I can pick you up a couple of tins :)

What a beautiful stitch. I agree the color is stunning.
And those patterns - no wonder you can't decide what to stitch first!

Edgar did a great job and was so generous! Lucky you! I have coffee menu as a UFO at the moment.
I see someone left you a comment about altoids at morrisons?!! I'll have to have a look there!
Hope you are keeping okay {{hugs}}

Wow you were spoiled!! What a lovely pinkeep and everything else is wonderful!

I found the Altoids mints in one of the chemists here. I've never seen them anywhere before so was really surprised.

That exchange is just gorgeous! Love the color Edgar used!

Kathy said...

Wow!! That was a great exchange, pinkeep and patterns too. It would be hard to figure out which one to stitch first.

What beautiful pictures. I love both your patchwork and Edgar's pynkeep, which seem to go together somehow.
