Firstly I bought this beautiful little nest from Natasha - Excuse the photo, but I am wearing it and trying to photograph it without taking it off. I wore it to work today and loads of people commented.
Natasha, it is Fantastic and just perfect - I love it. And she sent little gifties as well.
Then the Craft Fairy kissed me and while I still don't think I deserved it I must admit to a little squeal when I got this great parcel. See how teeny tiny that blue Ric Rac is??? Wherever you are Craft fairy I hope many many good things are happening for you .
Rachel of Four Wise Monkeys offered me a free ticket to stitches and Craft after I left a comment on her blog. We are bloggy neighbours (well, the same town). How nice is that? and she dropped it off for me at the local patchwork shop .
I am going tomorrow with Annie and we are meeting ChookyBlue there as well. (ooohhh eeerrr I hope she likes us !) I am also excited to meet all the other crafty girls on the Living creatively stand. (and a little bit nervous) . Can't wait to see Audrey and Maud!!!
Just when the week couldn't get any better, a phone call from Emma of Ballarat Patchwork informed me I had a present there and should pop in to collect it.
Triple EEEEKKKKK .....look at all these selvedges.... I am so getting organised. I am going to sort them by the predominant colour and eventually (like in a number of years) make a quilt - truly! Thank you so Much Em, you have really helped the cause.
I have had a lot of people chatting to me about selvedges since the bag post so I have made a Flickr group called Made with Selvedge but even I can't find it again so I think perhaps I ticked or didn't tick a wrong box somewhere.
So as everyone has conspired to give me such a great week - I am going to add something to someone elses week. . Usually when there is a giveaway , things get a bit crazy and a zillion or so people comment and I have to wait for a week for comments and then print them out and cut them all up....so I have decided to have a retrospective giveaway.
If you popped by and commented on my last post - you are entered. Simple as that
......and the winner is......(thanks again to Mr RicRac and his soon-to-be-patented picking a piece of paper from a bowl technique)........
Blue Mountains Mary !
Hurrah...Applause...Thank you all for entering even though you didn't know you were.
