One Flower Wednesday/ Great Mail and a finish.

I am a little late posting my flower this week as we had a power blackout sew could not post earlier.
My DD1 gave me this cute little fella to put in the garden.I brought him inside and sat him on my kitchen bench and he did give me enough light to wash my dishes by. thanks Jo!!
Powers back on Yeh!!

I took the photo of my Flower in a native shrub growing in our front yard this afternoon. As it is Spring in Aussie it is covered in beautiful little white bottlebrush flowers that have a lovely scent.
By joining Karen and the other ladies I make at least one flower every week.Maybe I can do a few more this week!

  Received some great parcels in the mail.


My last gifts from Christine for my Secret Santa Swap


and she popped in a surprise gift I could open NOW. 

WOW!! 006

Cat also sent me two beautiful FQ’s 005

Both were pressies for my B/D. Thank you ladies for your great gifts.

and my YUMMY fabrics I bought.


This “Pirate Quilt” is the first one I quilted using “Maggie”


read the story at  " The Patch."   Was delighted with my quick finish.

It really is a “Dog’s Life”
