Pink or Blue.....

When I saw Carol's cute softies HERE - I knew I just HAD to make some....

~ there's a little blue giraffe ~

~ and a little pink one ~

~ you see I don't know what colour I will need ~
~ but next month I will need one of these ~

it is a pattern from Melly and Me 
they have very cute Kokeshi Stuffie download on their site
~ I've got that printed out ~
there's a grandiegirl who will like that

Recently Cheryll had a give-away
and I won
just 'cos I follow her blog
how cool is that?

So look what arrived in my mailbox last week..... so pretty.......

with all these goodies inside
oh, oh, oh, lovely spotty fabric and ribbons and threads
a lovely magazine full of inspiration and patterns

the Quilt Aid pattern is a kit
with a lovely design by Lynette Anderson
and beautiful soft colours to work with

Thanks Cheryll.... I love them all

Cheryll is a great swap hostess and is presently hosting a couple of swaps - great fun

this little section of the garden is looking pretty at the moment
that is a stairway which is a bit overgrown
but I think it's prettily overgrown so I'll leave it a bit longer

I hear it is National Quilters Day
I wonder if it's for all nations?
I hope you have had some fun with quilts
or some stitching
or crafting
or maybe a great meal
or whatever blows your hair back

Your little giraffes are adorable, so cuddly looking. I'm jelous of your garden, spring is not quite here yet in AZ (at my house anyways).
Yes, I'm working on quilty things here for National Quilt day. I think we should have a National Quilt Week or better yet, Quilt Month! LOL

Your litle softie giraffes are so cute and I can predict one or both will become a much treasured cuddle toy. I love your garden it looks really pretty.
Happy National Quilting Day! I am adopting it as we all should have a whole day just to quilt.

Your garden is beautiful. I wish I could grow things. Thank goodness David likes yardwork or I'd have to live in an apartment with the plants I dust. hee,hee,hee.
