Surprise Mail and things !!

Last week it was my friend Sunny’s B/D and I was surprised to receive a gift FROM her .…






It is just gorgeous Sunny and I would be delighted to share your B/D each year. It is hanging above my sewing machine in the cave.. Thanks Heaps. XXX



There was also a lovely card and nice fabric in the post from Di and Miss Grace… What a thoughtful gesture Di thank you.





Lately I don’t seam to get settled on any projects and jump from one to another… thought if I tidied the cave and got rid of lots of bits that I have been hanging onto I would get motivated again….




Started to pull all my scraps out and bag them up for the bin when I came across this…





sew thankfully the scarps have been saved and now I am starting another project ..






Lots of ironing and cutting…….. Do you think I will ever finish it ???

BUT I do have this box of selvedges that needs a new home if there is anyone who would like them I am happy to send them on.. Sorry this one is only for Aussies..






OH !!! Don’t forget to pop over to Wendy to sign up for FNSI.

  17. Such a cute little mini quilt you have received. I like the embroidery around the block; and the cute little hanger too! Good luck on the new start of your quilt. I seem to be the same way. Sometimes it is too hard to stayed focused on just one project at a time.
