Aw, yeah!

My For the Love of Solids swap package arrived yesterday! It's from Michelle, and I couldn't be happier. Michelle blogs at City House Studio. She's super talented, and also genuinely kind.


She made me this mini quilt, and I'm going to hang it up at work. I love the piecing, and the diagonal quilting is awesome!


The back is just as fantastic as the front.


Michelle sent this library tote as my "small" item, although it matches the mini in size and awesomeness! I'll be honest--I fell in love with this tote when I first saw it on Flickr, and I would've been a little disappointed if it wasn't mine! The pieced letters are incredible.


And the bookshelf on the other side is excellent too. Luke and I always come home from the library with 15-20 items, so this will be getting lots of use!

Michelle's attention to detail is very impressive (it has pockets!). Check out the green topstitching!

Thanks so much, Michelle!!! I'm in love!

You lucky duck!! I loved that quilt when I saw her post it. That will be so fun on your wall at work! And great score on the tote as well. I don't think our library bag is ever big enough. Looks like your is now!
