My name is Collette and I am a quilter from Scotland. I have been a patchworker and quilter for over a decade and love to share what I have been making here.

A gift!

Yesterday there was the excitement of first days at school and returns to new classes.  On Wednesday I had a surprise package in the post from Sarah at Sew Me.

Down the stairs I came to a package lying on the hall floor.  My first thought - I didn't order fabric!!  Then I opened it and found an envelope that said open pressie first and this was inside!

A gorgeous Zakka inspired pencil case all for me!  AND a little charm handmade for all us Hipbees by Judith's talented daughter!  You really should take a look at her Etsy shop - Poppy's Pocket.  She makes the most wonderful polymer clay creations and is very talented.  

I love my little bee and I have yet to find a special spot just for him!! My kids were eyeing it up but they won't be touching him!  Now I have a great little reminder of my fellow worker bees over at the Hipbees and this brings a smile to my face! 

Thank you so much Sarah for such a kind and thoughtful gift and card. x
