An OMG moment


I have been trying to make Valentine things to decorate the house with but it has truly been a slow process for me.
I saw this runner on Mary's blog and I loved it.
Well much to my surprise I received it in the mail today as a P.I.F.
I am so overjoyed. It is beautiful and now at least I have 1 Valentine runner to display.

I also received a generous stash for my hexie quilt from the other Mary . I mean she sent a bagful for me to use.

I recently received another bag of scraps cut into 1.5 inch squares but I could not read the name on the envelope , so thank you to the lovely person who sent them all cut up with an additional piece of fabric.

A couple of weeks ago I received another pack of scraps from Pat all pressed and ready to cut even though she was not feeling well she got them in the mail.

So when I post my hexie quilt again, you will all probably recognize your fabrics.
Thank you all so much.

Hi, It's Emma here from Samapaguita Quilts. I tried to reply to your question on my blog, but got bounced by your spam-blocker and the request wouldn't go through. You may like to add my email address (I won't put it here, but is under my profile) so any further responses get through. But in short, my answer was yes, I edsigned it, and the pattern will be in the my Etsy shop within the week.
