The Talented Mrs. Goldsworthy

You may know her as Lily's Quilts. Or quite possibly Lynne. Maybe you think she's my Giddy Aunt. Likely, she'd answer to Smart Ass.

One thing is for certain, you all know who she is. The one who does the redonculous circle things. And the skinny linny's (those thin white strips that outline all manner of shapes in the blocks she makes). Of late, she's been the Queen Of All Things Hexagonical (yes, I am fully aware of the world hexagonal, thank you very much, but if you've seen what she's doing to those poor old hexagons, you'd use Hexagonical, too).

I just think she's FABULOUS. Because look what she sent me:

Killer Triangles by Lynne

If I wasn't acutely aware of her insane productivity, I might accuse her of being lazy for not putting a label on it (I'll take that matter up privately with Mrs. G). I have no choice but to make up my own name, so I'm calling it Killer Triangles (killer meaning wicked cool). I could look at it for hours and still notice new strips of wonderful, special fabric.

In keeping with her overachieving ways, of course it is totally reversible.

"the back!"

AND, as if that wasn't spectacular enough, Lynne also sent me one of her trademark Union Jacks (this is what I'd asked for in the first place for our little swappy - certainly I never expected TWO quilts). Jeez Nigel, now I'll have to make her something else. All I sent was a weenie passport pouch!

It's a Hochi Mappy Union Jack!

Lynne once excitedly tweeted that her Hochi Mappy Yum Yum had arrived and now I cannot possibly think of Monica's fabric as Happy Mochi ever again. Hochi Mappy has a mischievous ring to it that just makes me giggle (and I'm pretty sure that's okay with Monica).

Thank you so very much Mrs. Goldsworthy.

yay for online friends or 'imaginary' friends as I believe Mrs Goldsworthy's son calls us ;-)

Katherine said...

I think receiving such awesomeness might lead to doing a Hochi Mappy dance! ;o)

Love, love, love these gorgeous quilts. You must be over the moon with such fabulous gifts.
