|Heidi, from Red Letters Quilts, made... |
a Sketchy Bee Journal for me!
Happy Dance Jamboree!
|Heidi's Sketchy Bee Journal & Card|
... as well as an adorable bee card! To say I was bowled over is an understatement! In fact, when I first beheld the package, my first thought was that Heidi was returning the scraps of vintage white on white fabrics that I had recently sent off to her. Then I realized, it couldn't be, the package was too heavy for that. (To see what I'm talking about check out Heidi's "Saving the Fabrics of the World" post and her wonderful Summer Gathering quilt.)
Apparently, Heidi's idea to send a surprise started brewing when I flipped over a beautiful Quilted Cookbook Cover that she made for her Mom. We two hit it off like kindred spirits! This all led Heidi to make this wonderful Sketchy Bee Quilted Book Jacket... and to her surprising the socks off me!
As you can see, the journal is the Bee's Knees, with so many wonderful details!

|Sketchy Bee Journal Outside - Hourglass blocks, a hand embroidered bumblebee on linen,|
tape measurer fabric, and matchstick quilting!
Thank you Heidi for such an incredible surprise! You are so talented, so very sweet and I am in awe!
I started "stalking" Heidi immediately (which is really fun by the way!) and have plans to make her something that I hope she will love just as much as I love my new Bee Sketchbook!
