Brown paper packages tied up with strings...

These are definitely a few of my favourite things!! Firstly there was a package from Cat containing a colourful Starburst Spools mini. 
Cat used a pattern by Charise creates and it is just amazing. I really love the different fabrics she has used for each piece and many of them have special meaning - such as the word "green" (my favourite colour), some Denyse Schmidt prints and the kitty for Simba:)
 And now this little beauty from the X factor pillow swap has turned up on my doorstep.
Brooke @PitterPutter Stitch made this beautiful pillow for the 7th round of the X-factor pillow swap which had a Low volume theme. I really love how she has pieced this and the curvy quilting on the yarn dyed linen looks amazing!
 I need to go and buy another 20 inch pillow form to put this one in so that I can add it to my pillow collection. I have really enjoyed being a part of this swap  - the next theme is "Log cabin and Text" and is not due until 25th January 2014 so there is plenty of time to get sewing if you would like to join in.


  1. Oh wow, both those parcels are really gorgeous! You are very lucky (but also a deserving recipient!).

  2. Wow! What a lucky girl you are. The spools mini is striking. I can't stop looking at it.

  3. Wow, you have been in some amazing swaps! Everything looks perfect!

  4. Beautiful packages! My son has been playing the favourite things song on his saxophone lately so it is often running through my head!!!

  5. Those parcels would be my favourite things too! Love them both :o)
