Recently Nicky came to visit,
well, her husband was visiting family in the area,
in fact so close, it was almost the back garden!
and way back in the summer, we both agreed to a personal swap,
each making a cushion ...
and Nicky brought hers with her ... I was completely taken aback!
isn't it beautiful! hand applique'd and everything,
she confessed to have stalked my flickr faves and quite frankly
she got it spot on!
the detail on the back is stunning as is the free motion quilting!
and there is a little label inside under the zip cover too
(but i didn't get a photo, and its dark!)
honestly Nicky, I feel ashamed I have not fulfilled my end of the bargain,
I need to rectify this!
whilst she was here, as well as inspecting the studio and the fabric pantry,
a serious inspection of the quilts was made,
sadly we ran out of time to look at them all,
I think that's a damn good excuse for another visit!
(I counted them as I folded them up again, 54!)
