Hi All
Wow the mail has been good lately and to start with I have present from my great friend Tutti Frutti.....is you read her blog you will know she has just had a trip to Japan.........man that girl did some shopping.........lucky she also got some material for me.........blue chooks............how cool is that.........and I love the others too, one has sheep on it and the other I love and think I will make a bag with..............I am sooooo lucky thanks heaps Tutti Frutti...I have never seen materials like this so it has opened up a whole new world - hmmm that could be dangerous........ .......Well Sharon and I celebrated our 100 posts about the same time so decided to exchange presents............this is what I got from her - a bag, 3 patterns, a little plate and she also sent some See's Candy........that didn't last very long and was sooooo good I especially liked the vanilla one.............I'm swapping with her again real soon
this is my favourite pattern and can see myself making this up really soon...................well 100 posts ago seem so long ago with Sharon as man that girl can post on her blog..........she must be up to 150 posts by now................she must go 24 hours a day and she always has so much to post about.............
Finally I have some material from the Moda Shangrila range..........I love shopping at Z&S Fabrics........they have great deals and package things so nicely............ these materials will go with the charm pack that I brought earlier.................
Emus out in the paddock the other day...........as you can see we need some rain............desperately again............

Off to a craft fair this weekend and will have dinner with Kerry and Dragonfly and Patch while there........
