It's Arrived

Today when I checked my mail box there was a little Red and White card sew I went into the Post Office to collect  my parcel from the Fat Quarter Shop, 

 inside were my templates for Bloom Sew-Along with Cheryll

        and of course some extra goodies......                                     

after printing off the pattern, I am now ready to play along with the other "Bloomers".
 If you wish  you can still join in by clicking on this link  Bloomers.....

Also the ladies from the Fat Quarter Shop had included this post card for this years Quilt Along.......

Hmmm!!!   Do I need to join in another SAL ??????????

Yesterday I finally  received my Christmas Card and cute Polar Bear  Di sent weeks ago.....

Sometimes the post can be sew SLOW but I'll be able to hang him on my tree this year. Thank sew much Di..

When I drove down our driveway today we had a visitor 

A Bungarra.........

Thankfully he was only a small one.......

Must away now as I need to pack, I'm off to a Sewing Retreat in the morning.....

Happy Stitching

Hugz  Maria 😄


  1. I will enjoy following your progress with the new quilt!

  2. Oh yumm, such a lovely parcel.
    Lucky you ... a sewing retreat to start you year :)

  3. Of course you need another fun with it. Have a great time at your retreat.....

  4. oh fun!! Getting mail is always exciting and this looks like a particularly yummy parcel :-) The Bloomers QAL is a tempting one to do! Lovely wee polar bear from Di... we need some cool polar air around here at the moment! Have fun at retreat.

  5. They're always tempting us, aren't they? I need to dig up my templates and get serious about the SAL. It looks like a wonderful box to get in the post.

    The little polar bear is so cute, but that creature in the driveway is not! How big do they get? Are they dangerous?

  6. Bloomers looks lovely.
    Your visitor doesn't.

  7. A bungarra, my goodness,if he is small, how big do they grow?

  8. All your goodies look like a fun time and such pretty fabrics that just happened to jump in that box and begged to come to your house!!! and a pretty set of fabrics to do the Bloomers quilt with that you have picked out--
    and if that bungarra is a small one--dont know that I would want to see a bigger one!!!!
    luv, di

  9. Look forward to following your progress on Bloom. I'm glad i don't get that sort of visitor here. :) Hugs,xx

  10. Yippee... we can BLooM together...haha
    Nice fabrics too... xox

  11. Well that was smart! I looked at the Bloom templates at the Fat Quarter Shop, and the postage was going to be about $30 and I thought that was way too much for something that would fit in an envelope. So I didn't buy them. It didn't even occur to me to buy more stuff to make the postage worthwhile!

    Looks like you have some lovely goodies in that package.

  12. lovely to get your box in the post... looks like lots of fun in there.... Bloomers will be lovely and yes, why not join another SAL.....

  13. Que maravilla!!! Te divertirás mucho haciendo ese hermoso quilt. Disculpa que no te respondí tu comentario días atrás, pero es que no me estaban llegando los mensajes al correo. Ya lo resolví, gracias a Dios. Recibe un fuerte abrazo venezolano.

  14. Some lovely, exciting mail for you. The little Christmas ornament is very sweet.

  15. Lovely mail....enjoy your new project. Such a sweet ornie too! I am not going to utter a word about another SAL last I be guilty of aiding and abetting lol!
    Lovely critter in the driveway xx

  16. O, I even Love the box. It looks so intriguing and of course it really is!
