Doll Quilt(s) - a safe arrival!

Imagine my surprise when late last week I opened this,

dqs8 and squiggles

....then nervously unwrapped this,

dqs8 safely under wrap

to find THIS

dqs8 care package from Nanci


dqs8 ALSO made by Nanci, received!

Wait, there must be some mistake. Instantly I had a little panic, thinking that Nanci had made a mistake and rolled the two quilts together, and I was going to have to send one back!!! But look:

dqs8 labels

That's definitely my name on both labels. Did this person I've never met, who lives way far away in Texas, actually make two totally-different-yet-absolutely-perfect-for-me-quilts for me? YES, she did!!!! Thank you so much Nanci! I love both of the quilts so much. You did an amazing job and I couldn't have asked for a better partner for my first ever Doll Quilt Swap.

I may have to arm-wrestle my daughter for the seasons quilt. She let out a squeal to rival my own when she arrived home from school to see it.

As mentioned in my last blog entry, this is my 75th post! I am planning a little giveaway for my followers and subscribers, however I can't figure out how to see who my subscribers in Google Reader are...I've sent an S.O.S to the help people to see if it is possible...if any Blogger users out there know how to do this, please share! Something came up that prevented me from making my intended giveaway giftie, but I know you understand and trust that it is coming very soon. Stay tuned!

You have been lucky with your swap partner indeed, they are perfect! Were they among the Flickr pictures you have been looking (and drooling) at?
