shopping.................

hello blogland.........back again after another busy schedule which meant I couldn't blog etc but now life should be returning to normal - usual crazyness not super crazy............

&&&&&&&&&&&

I have so many things to show and tell but I will leave it for a few posts..........

&&&&&&&&&&&

frist up I have kits for 2 of Anni Downs - Hatched and Patched most recent releases..........they will be part of her latest book I managed to get them at the Women's Gathering that she designed them at...........I picked the needlecase (stitchery design)

and I couldn't decide so I got the pillow kit (applique) too................fantastic little country scenes..........

and I got some fabrics together for my polka dots and ric rac swap...............

I have not got around many blogs this month - I have tried but not got to far...........bloglines has the number of unread posts at a number which is mind blowing but I will get there..........

&&&&&&&&&&&

....it is very warm here in my part of Oz and summer is definitely here..........got sunburnt on my shoulders while mowing and watering.............trying to catch up.............but hey it had to get warm sometime....and I got the garden bed finished finally so will show you some pics of that soon............I am finally seeing some of the snow posts the winter girls have shown and I still think it is pretty weird............anyway more news to come soon I promise.............

Take care til next time.....................Chookyblue...........
