I'm One Lucky Instagrammer

I have to admit that I have won probably more than my share of prizes within the online community. I am not complaining obviously. I doozy of one arrived this morning. From Aylin in Germany. She blogs here and is on nilya2011 on Instagram. And she makes beautiful things.


This bag is proof positive of that fact. I admired it the whole time she was showing the stages of construction on IG. I was floored when she said she was giving it away. And I was over the moon when I won it. The paper pieced swimsuit is even in my all time favourite fabric. This bag is so, so lovely!


Aylin's labels are so sweet too. One day I will get around to having some labels made. Meanwhile I will just enjoy having such a fab bag as it is two things I do not do - foundation paper piecing and properly made bags. This would never appear from my sewing room made by my hands. Ever!


Aylin also included this mug and pen that she had printed at Vistaprint. A proper quilty mug and pen. No one is going to use these in this house but me. Just saying.

So a huge thank you to Aylin for being so kind to share her wonderful makes and being so talented. I love what I have won and am in awe of her talent.
