Last week my friend Meike gave me this incredibly fabulous weekender as a belated christmas gift (we didn’t manage to meet earlier):
And this is the back:
I am a lucky girl, am I not?! I love her choice of colour and the way she quilted the outer panels.
And I love the sturdy handles and the little pockets and the zipper pocket and the little flower and… and… everything!
And isn’t this stamped label just too cute?!
And it has a perfect size for the weekends I spend at my parents’ when I take my kids there for a visit. A perfect gift! Thank you again, Meike!!!
Now you may want to see the christmas gift that I had made for her:
I made a fabric basket to match the quilt I made her last year:
And I gave Meike two Kate Spain Charm Packs to convince her to start making quilts. We took a basic sewing class together 3 years ago and developed different sewing preferences since. I became addicted to quilting and she makes the most beautiful clothes for her children, awesome pouches and phone covers, loops and bags. Plus she has great taste – for example when it comes to colour coice and combining solids with prints. I’m so glad we met 4 years ago!!! (in a water-gymnastics class for pregnant women when we were both expecting a second baby).
Here’s to a long lasting friendship and many more happy sewing hours spend together!
Give your best friend a hug!
