Yarn Stash Swap & Favorite Quilts

I just finished participating in the Yarn Stash Swap 2007 hosted by Kyle Knits! at I had a really nice package in the mail waiting for me when I came back from vacation.

(Sorry for the toes in the picture. They do help explain the missing candy though.)

I got a big skein of Sugar & Cream cotton-- I love dishcloth cotton. 2 skeins of Sirdar Snuggly in a nice bright pink (I can't believe these were the least favorite yarn in her stash, wait till you see what I sent.) 1 skein fuzzy turquoise blue novelty yarn ( I think this would make a good Dr. Seuss Thing 1 hat). Some yummy samples and a pomegranite scented candle. What fun!

I also thought I would show off one of my favorite vintage quilts. I don't even remember how I got this one but I love that it is so scrappy. The repairs and rebinding of it really make it special to me also. My DH and most of my family think I have awful taste in vintage quilts. I love them scrappy and mismatched and patched and repaired and loved and worn. I hope the quilts I make suffer a similar fate. I hope they are loved to death.
