the Covert Robin swung by my mailbox!

As I mentioned before, I am participating in the Cover Robin over at Imagine Gnats. Well, my gift came in the mail this weekend! My secret gift maker was Kara who blogs right here, and is rather amazing with a camera if I do say so myself. Anyway, she decked out the box that she sent my treat in so well, I almost didn't want to open it! I was so giddy, I couldn't wait to get back to my apartment and see what was inside.

First, she made me these lovely AMH Volie pillowcases.

Don't they look great on my white bed? I LOVE them. The room was in need of a splash of color and these definitely did the trick! I have never owned, touched, or used Voile and let me tell you, it is awesome. Sooo silky soft. 

Second, was this adorable little flannel coffee sleeve. 

AMH Good Folks can now go with me to work! The stitching on it is so well done and professional looking. I am so impressed. She also included a sweet note and some cute little flower stickers!

Kara, thank you so much for these wonderful gifts. It was such a treat to receive them, and they really made my weekend! Everything you made is so 'me', I can't thank you enough!

Also, everyone remember, tomorrow is the first post of the Retro Flowers Quilt Along. Make sure to hop over to Bianca's blog in the morning to get all sorts of tips and tricks on making/using templates and cutting out your fabric. Get excited!


  1. Wow, Megan, you scored! I had so much fun making my partners gift. I can't wait for the next swap!

  2. Oh, I'm so glad you like your gifts!!!!!!!!! :D I was stalking your blog like crazy, hoping that I would pick just the right fabrics for you (dang it that your favorite Amy Butler yellow Lotus fabric is $20 a fat quarter on Etsy; say WHAT?!). I remembered over the weekend that I forgot to include my email address in the note to you (dud!); it's . Send me an email and we can talk about the guest posting part of the swap, if you're interested. :)

  3. PS: Just added your button to my blog; so glad I can now and not give away that I was your covert robin buddy! :)
