Such kindness from the Netherlands

23Oct08

A while back, I discovered a blog. The author is a sweet lady named Geertrude. When I find a blog that I like, I read through all of the posts. Am I the only one who does this? Anyway, I came across this post, and fell in love with this farm quilt. It was so charming and completely different than anything I have in my home. On a more recent post, she talked about knitting some hats with Soulemama‘s favorite hat pattern, and offered them in a giveaway. Free hand knitted item that is one-of-a-kind and so pretty? Of course I entered! But oh, poor sweet Geertrude…she couldn’t choose a winner, so she very generously offered a gift to each gal who entered. When she emailed me to offer me the farm quilt, I about flipped my lid! I gave her my address and then yesterday (only took a week or so!) it arrived on my doorstep! I was at work, so the hubs received it and then promptly forgot that it came. I didn’t find it until after the kids were already in bed. I photographed it this morning, as soon as enough light peeked through the clouds.

She also included an adorable handbag that Kaitlin is trying to claim for herself.

The back of the quilt (the farm pillowcase that she talks about in the post).

I’ve already found a spot for it in our home, and it is Kaitlin-approved. ha.

Thank you SO MUCH Geertrude!! I can’t wait to get home, curl up under it, and knit the night away!!

    Oh, I’m blushing…
    I’m so glad it arrived this soon and I’m very relieved that you like it in real life too (yes, that’s me, always worrying about what people think of the things I make).
