More lovely prizes and Swap Goodness

Oh me oh my what a lucky girl am I!!!

These are the last 2 items from my spectacular Winning month in June.
I won a giveaway from Aussie Handmade Giveaway which was a voucher to spend at the Rainbow Revolution shop. I of course couldn't resist spending more and bought this lovely Bamboo/Cotton Wrap which is hand dyed in a lovely purply/pinky combination.
On the right is the "Material Obsession" Book that I won from Jackie at Canton Village Quiltworks, I have long admired this book and nearly bought a copy once or twice but thank goodness I didn't. It is such a lovley read. The projects are beautiful and the instructions and easy to follow, I cannot recommend it enough. Even my husband had a flick through and admired it.

The lovley little quilt that you see below is made by Nannette from Salt Lake City in the USA. She is my swap partner in the "Swap Till You Drop" Group on Flickr for the July swap and it is a lovley little quilt measuring 15inches, A matching pin cushion and a roll of Chenille Blooming Bias.

This quilt is absolutely amazing considering that it was done very quickly we only got each other as partners on the 7th July and it takes 7-10 days for her mail to get to me, you do the maths...
All the detail that you see is appliqued, the vines, flowers, cat, stars. There is also alot of quilting of different varieties on the roof, the background and the lower bit below the house. You can have a closer look in my Flickr Photos

I just love it and will be making sure it is hung on my wall for people to see.
Now I just have to finish mine to send to her by the 31 July, I have it nearly done, just a few more finishing touches.
Thank you Nannette, I love it and am so glad that I got you for my first S.T.U.D. partner.
