This and That.

I started my day bobbing with my friends. 

On the way home a cray boat was being taken to dry dock.

    I did not realise how big 
   they are.

DH and I went to town this afternoon and I just had to get some of these.

I needed the whites and cotton. The others because I love them.


Lovely spots,stripes and panels.
They will make great kids and charity quilts.

When checking the mail I found this.

001 (6)

    and I received THREE


009    My lovely Swap
Block from Leona USA.


Beautiful Mug Rugs from Jacqueline all the way from The Netherlands.
How cute is that OWL!!

018       My DD2 sent the scissors and unpics to pop into the sewing kits for the Qld Flood folk.

Thank you to the ladies for my great parcels. Love them all.

Sorry about the big spaces but this post had a mind of it's own???


  1. Wonderful squishies!!!! What fun for you!

    I LOVE that bird fabric. I would have to have some of that too if I saw it.

    The water looks much cleaner now - good for a bob.

  2. wow! lots of treasures for you! That bird fabric caught my eye too, so cute.

  3. Love the fabrics you bought. Great photo of the boat, too.

  4. I love how your days start off with swimming...that would be so lovely! And the fabrics are wonderful...I really like the one with the birds. Isn't is fun to get packages in the mail? You got some wonderful ones, too! Have a great rest of your day!



  5. everytime you show a picture of the beach I can just imagine myself there!!!!!
    Love all your fun things...lucky you!

  6. Fun squishies! I love love love the birdie fabric you bought, and the panels the greens and pinks, look forward to seeing what you make with them all !
    Have a great day

  7. what a great day.... i backed the latest baby quilt with that bird fabric and then I bought some more cos Iloved it too!

  8. I can understand why you couldn't leave the fabrics behind in the shop. I too bought some of the beach hut fabric when we visited Braidwood a couple of years ago. No idea what I'll do with it, but I just HAD to have some. I love the bird fabric too. Don't you just love mail like that. So much better than window faced envelopes.

  9. Lot's of great goodies! What is that birdie fabric? Love it. Hope you were thinking of me and my snow while you were bobbing.

  10. What fun packages you got in the mail!

    And I do envy you living close enough to the water to go swimming in the morning. How I do miss the sound of the surf and the feel of sand between my toes.

  11. Lovely and that lobster boat was filling up the whole road.

  12. Fabulous presents and how wonderful to be near the water.

  13. Oooooo, those fabrics sure are nice, Maria!! Bless your daughter, what a sweetheart - like her mum! :-)

  14. O Maria- I just got to see that lovely HOOT OWL! That is just so drop - dead CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!
