True Blue.....

This year I joined up with a merry gang of birthday fat quarter swappers.... so of course... it being my turn last week I received my squishies in the mail box.....

I had said I would like to build up a collection of blue of white fabrics 


~ oooops, there are a few extra's in there when I put my blue's together ~

Thank-you so much birthday swapping ladies - perfect picks
It's very exciting - I now own a 'blue stash'

My daughter made a lovely cake but I needed help with the candle



Dinner was excellent (even if I say so myself!):

Pan fried fresh Tasmanian salmon on a bed of rocket with turkish bread and wilted courgette

I am in a French inspired swap group hosted by Cheryl and she sent this cutest fob this week


There is a lovely Lavender sachet pattern HERE - I might do one of those for the swap?

I did finish this cute Rosalie Quinlan design ornament 
for my 1 Christmas Item a Month


It's not too late to join Narelle's challenge - no pressure, make one if you can and showcase it 
or pop along HERE for some great ideas

Righto, gotta go.... cheese to make, scones to bake ....
