My First OFW (on thursday) for 2013 and Lovely Mail

After the busy season it is nice to get back to doing my usual things like joining Karen and the ladies at OFW. Do pop over to see what the ladies have made this week..
This is my first Flower for 2013…


It’s like me, a bit of a puzzle……….

Christmas is still arriving in my mail box..  I received this beautiful Table Runner form my friend Sunny in the USA… Look at the lovely stitchery and quilting Sunny did……

Sunny's gift for me Christmas 2012
Oh !! was also a yummy chocie but ate it before I could take a photo…..
There was also my great books by Natalie Bird that I needed for "SAL with Chooky and Friends".

look forward to sitting down with a cuppa and have a good browse..
As well as my lovely blocks from Lorna and Cathy…..
