have you ever seen a prettier baby quilt?

than this one, i mean:

because i sure haven't! lest you think that the entire universe has changed course and the earth has shifted on its axis: NO, I HAVE NOT LEARNED TO SEW! wouldja believe i *won* this lovely lovely item??! remember a month or so ago when missus trash was having her fabulous craffle to benefit the australian redcross' bushfire appeal? well, of course i donated to that worthy cause, but i never dreamed i'd walk away with one of the amazingly tasty prizes. this quilt was made--& donated--by the astonishingly talented and super-generous katy of i'm a ginger monkey. it is gorgeous and soft and beautifully crafted and has the most mouth-watering array of pink floral fabrics in a field of white, with a reverse of what my sister calls "sky blue pink" on the back.

wouldja like a closer look? (thought so!) here ya go:

want to hear the very best and most awesome part of this whole thing? i have just won a beautiful pink baby quilt less than a month before my best friend's baby girl is born!!! talk about your excellent timing, eh? along with said quilty confection, katy sent a very sweet and deliciously scented lavender sachet...which i am keeping for myself! (shhhhhhhhhhhh!)

thank you, ginger monkey!

thank you, missus trash!
