I'm in love.....

... with the postman.... (don't tell Hubz)

Firstly my cushion from the cushion swap hosted by Sue arrived....

I'm sure some people heard me SQUEEEEEALLLLLLL

Jan sent to me this awesome pillow in pink and green.... 


I just love these petal and button details on it....


... and such a clever way to close the cushion.... another lovely detail...


It's just lovely and I am so pleased with it.... so pretty .... it was originally planned to be for a spare bedroom but I have decided to keep it in my sewing/computer room ... it's for me you see...

Another SQUEEAAAALLLL when a parcel arrived from Jane in the UK where I had won a play mat in a give away .....

isn't it so fun.... quite a big one and perfect for when I have little visitors...


Hubz is going to organise some discs and a dice for us

I wanted to show you the detail... this is all cross stitch on a canvas... isn't it amazing?


Both of these are lovely handmade additions to my home... thanks Jan and Jane.....

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend......

I'm doing a bit of this


.... and this.....


... and this.....


Righto, Gotto Go.... coffee, coffeeee, cofffffeeeeee

That playmat is a great idea - and a gorgeous cushion as well. Lucky you! Getting a head start on February SAL I see....and a few other little projects.

What lovely goodies! That machine quilting is very lovely, you know.....this morning the wombat household nearly had a disaster because the coffee grinder wouldn't work and the last of the ground coffee had been drunk yesterday, you won't ever find instant coffee in my house. But a little poking with a bamboo skewer and the grinder works as well as it ever did.
