I’ve been very excitedly awaiting this parcel from Kellie at Don’t Look Now, and when it arrived last week the contents – her “Sugar Candy” cushion and cheeky monkey Amy – didn’t disappoint. Kellie’s workmanship is meticulous, and her machine quilting technique is to-die-for. If you have the opportunity to take one of her classes you should grab it with both hands. I managed to stop drooling over this exquisite work long enough to take these photos for you to see Kellie’s creation up close. The spots on the ladybug’s back are created by machine. How clever is that? And as for the lovely Amy… Let me just say that Kellie sure knows how to stuff a monkey! Amy has the firmest biceps and tightest abs of any sock monkey I’ve met and makes my own sock monkeys look positively limp-wristed. You go girl!
Why the question mark over whether or not I won? Well, my name didn’t actually come out in Kellie’s draw. But my kind-hearted bloggy friend Lindi’s name did, and she had secretly entered for me!!
Isn’t that just the loveliest thing you’ve heard today?
Let’s hear it for Lindi – Yaaaayyyy Lindi!!! (Thank you again, dear friend)
