My finished Madeline quilt and some amazing mail.......

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good day. It is very hot here today. I'm very thankful that we have central air, otherwise I would not have been able to sleep today. I finished my Madeline quilt last night. It has a lot of hand quilting in it. But I love it. It is one of my favorite quilts. I hope you like it.

I also received my potholder pass 3 package today. It's from Kelli, and came all the way from Australia. I just love my potholders. She included some wonderful extras. She sent some Tim Tam's, a wonderful pen and key chain with the Australian flag and for my daughter B-sew cute, she sent two charm packs of Sweet. My daughter was so excited. She said: " I have fans....I have fans... you better watch out Mommy!" I started to laugh. She is so cute. Thanks you so much Kelli. It just made my day.

Hugs

Ariane

Ariane, your quilt turned out so nicely! What a good job you did with the handquilting!

I just sent my potholders yesterday and they are going far, so my partner won't get them until next week!

As if you got your potholders before i got mine! Man, you always win!

There is no crisis, problem or dilemma that is not assuaged by a TIm Tam and coffee. Try the Australian way of eating them by nibbling a piece off opposite corners, submerge one end in the coffee and suck. Decadent but fun.

Your quilt is stunning! Aster Manor is such a beautiful fabric range. Ann :-)

Your Madeline quilt is beautiful! Weird, but it reminds me of one of those gothic 18th century novels - Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, etc.
