Has it Really

been five days since I got home… I just want the world to slow down. I want to  have 48 hr days and 14 day weeks…. Wouldn't that be good.

Now to post the lovely goodies I come home to..

A free copy of Australian Quilters Champion with the story of  Sue's Quilting Block Swaps Australia.  Sue also sent me two FQ’s and a bookmark.


I enjoy participating in this swap which was started for Aussies but has now gone international. Pop over to Aussie Swap Blog and see if you would like to join.

The giveaway I won over at Michelle's blog,


so many gifts, matching buttons,tea towels, doily , cards and stitchery as well as nice tea bags to enjoy.

and the third parcel contained these beautiful Charm Squares from Marcia's Crafty Sewing and Quilting Blog for completing a line in our Bingo Game..



Thank you ladies for my gifts.

Today Mr Postie was nice again…


A giveaway win from another Michelle NZ.


Nice big pincushion , cute little bag, fabric tape and a Schnibbles Pattern. I have seen many bloggers make these little quilts and have always wanted to make one. Now I can thanks to Michelle.
