A couple of weeks ago I posted some pictures of hexies for the exchange I was in, and put this  little owl on the top of the stack. Because he is cute.

I got an email from Nicki asking what the fabric line was, she really liked the fabric and might like to do a search for it. I told her I had no clue--I had already trimmed off the selvage (hehe), but since I had a half yard and really didn't need that much, I would happily send her a quarter yard. She wanted to pay for it, at least shipping. I told her it was only a quarter yard, would cost hardly anything to mail it, so off in the mail to her it went.

A couple of days later I received an email from her asking what kind of colors I like. I thought, hmmm, maybe she found a piece of fabric she was going to send me; maybe she felt more comfortable doing an exchange. Completely not necessary but it would be fun to see what she sent.

Yesterday a package arrived in the mail. This is what I found inside:

Sterling silver, black onyx and rose quartz.
Sterling silver, turquoise, freshwater pearls.

Aren't they gorgeous?? I was speechless. All I did was send a little quarter yard of fabric. My stash won't even miss it.

These earrings are exquisite. Thanks, Nicki!

And this is why I love quilting and blogging. You meet the nicest people.
