One of those weeks

It's definitely been one of those weeks! I've been such bad company that I've stayed well clear of blogging for fear of driving you all away. Anyway I'm sufficiently chirpy to blog today.

One bright spot in an otherwise grey week has been the arrival of my Urban Home Goods Swap. I received a gorgeous package from Lynda, wrapped in one of the prints from my coveted favourite Sherbet Pips! Frankly if this had been all that I received I would have been chuffed to bits but when I opened the package I could have cried!!

Inside was this gorgeous stacked coin cushion

and two Posh Pillow Cases in Innocent Crush prints! Check out the crochet detail on this beauty!

The pillow cases are reversible and this is the print on the other side:

Lynda did such a good job researching what to make for me. The pillows and cushion go perfectly with the Sliced Coins quilt I made during Don't Call Me Betsy's Quilt Along. See how fab it all looks together! I was very nearly emotional but thankfully had a visitor so was saved from the bloodshot eyes and snotty nose :)

I just need to pull my finger out and get this quilted so I can get on and use this fab set!

Hopefully I'll be feeling more chatty and productive next week so I can share some progress on new projects with you :)


  1. Great package! I hope you feel more cheery soon. I've not blogged much this month because it's been one of those months. Must be something in the air!

  2. Thank you :) Hope you feel cheerier soon too!

  3. What a lovely package! Just what you needed to give you a bit of a boost. So glad you didn't cry! It's never a good look and gives you a headache too. Chin up petal. xx

  4. Aren't you lucky!! I'm so jealous, the cushion and pillow cases are fab! Hope you're feeling better soon, life is tough at times.

  5. Lovely swap goodies - lucky you!!

  6. Sorry to hear you've not been yourself. Lovely to get gorgeous packages though. Enjoy your especially made items. They're beautiful. Jxo

  7. That coins / bookcase cushion is just wonderful. And I can't believe she wrapped in SP!!! And to match those pillows to the bed.

  8. Yes. Once again I got super lucky with my swap partner :-)

  9. I think a package like that would cheer any of us up! Lovely cushions (especially the stacked coins) and they do go beautifully well with your quilt. Hope your mood stays lifted and gets even better in the following days :-)


Lovely comments read with glee everyday.
