My very own Brrr! Rocket Ship

I'm not sure how many of you spied this phenomenally creative and cute pillow out in Flickr/Pinterest/Blog land this past month...But I simply fell in love with it. I mean, seriously? Is this not one of the most adorable things you have ever seen. Ever??

Brrr! quilt and pillow by Alex of Teaginny Designs

A few months ago, Robert Kaufman and I sent Alex over at Teaginny Designs some advance cuts of Brrr! to play with and giveaway to one of her blog readers.  And when she sent me a picture of what she had created, I just nearly fell out of my chair. I've been following Alex's work on Flickr for a long time and her creativity is really just boundless. But this was over-the-top amazing as far as I was concerned.

When I posted a peek at her project on my Facebook page and on my Pinterest boards, I think everyone I ran into that week here in Austin commented on how cute the rocket ship was. I'm still not sure why on earth she agreed, but the amazingly sweet and talented Alex agreed to make me a rocket ship of my very own. Eeee!!!! It arrived here last week and I've been impatiently waiting for a sunny day so I could snap some pictures of it living in my studio.


Look at the pebble quilting!

The way she used the selvage simply slays me. And the hand work on the windows! So cute!



And the thank you note she made me. As if I needed a thank you!? 

The rocket ship happily living in my studio :)  
Do you spy Dexter kitty under the step stool under my cutting table?

Alex: Thank you so much for such an amazing gift. I'm inspired by your creativity and kindness! I just love it beyond measure. Thank you!!

Brrr! will start shipping this coming June which will be here before we know it!

Cute - I love rockets. I wonder where those polar bears are going?

Poppyprint said...

How wonderfully creative. I never would have thought to put a couple of polar bears in a rocket! They are so perfect in those circles, though. So fun.

Jess said...

Oh that is brilliant! I'm so excited about this collection, the polar bears are so cute :)
