Last week I turned 50 something again.....
The ladies in my Fat Quarter Club Melody, Maree, Peg, Laurie, Liz, Leanne sent me these lovely gifts
there is fabric and soap and cream, and chocs and thread and scissor keeper and cards and more....
There was another beetle and Tim Tams and chocolate eclairs - they are now part of the 50 something ecosystem
.... my little sewing group here have always laughed at my not really existent stash.... whose laughing now???
I'm thrilled with them all - thanks so much ladies.... you are AWESOMENESS
I also received my lovely first Christmas block from Crafty Pug
this is a monthly 12" block swap My theme is Christmas Trees in any traditional colours
isn't this AWESOMENESS?
There has been a group of goat herders and the travelling goats are beginning to return home....
Gruffles arrived home today with some lovely lavender - having been to the Yukon Territory, North Dakota and Western Australia .... he is now adorning a lovely pillow.... I wonder if he will whisper amazing adventure stories as I rest my head??
This activity has meant I have bloggily met and had some crafty fun with some wonderful people and getting to understand life that is quite different from my own
This is the map from inside his passport showing where he has been - and where he comes from!
Sage and Jupiter (who live with Laura) have arrived too.... for a final touch to their make-over...
for now they need a stretch and a browse of green grass having crossed the Nullarbor Desert
I am putting blocks together as part of Helens The Aussie Spirit quilts
Stitcheries. The stitchery blocks are being done by people all over and then sent to me
I am expecting 34 stitcheries - so far 12 have arrived and they are so fantastic
I just love the pictures, the hand work is amazing
This will be such fun
Thanks to all those who have sent such lovely fabric - it will be such a great help when putting the blocks together into a quilt
I have also sent out two swaps... A Once a Season Swap and a Colour Swap
I forgot pictures but I hope that X and Y enjoy their gifts!
I think I'll take out shares in Auspost
