shopping and more...........

Everyone sitting around at Chai Wallah for lunch...............



Susan's quilt at show and tell...........all hand quilted..........

And her version of Tis the Season was finished too............

Lea got an old quilt while in the USA.........love it..........

Bruschetta for my lunch...........beautiful..........

We had a little quick swap and so people did stress the theme was
Make it, Bake it or Fake it (buy something saving time)
Lea "faked it" and I got her parcel...things from the USA.......pumpkin pincushion on a little cotton spool and  a chocolate...........

A christmas present for someone............

a little stash enhancement - not that I need it but I loved them both.............

and these to go with some lovely fabrics Jenny gave me when she visited............Anni Downs fabrics..........

And this pattern caught my attention...........
Cooler here this morning being cloudy but it is supposed to clear and get to 37deg C........it's just going to be horrible til the end of the week..............some 40plus days to come............yuk........stay cool where you are.........

Cool and raining here. Melbourne has my kind of weather for sure! Adelaide is sounding similar to your weather for the rest of the week though. (So glad I'm here.) Love all your purchases!
