Awful August is almost over...

...and I will be very happy to start September and enjoy springtime in Melbourne.  August really was horrid.

OK, that's the grizzling over and done with, on to much happier things.  While I was away some parcels arrived for lucky spoilt me.  Thank you so much to Sheila for this owly adorableness.  An amazing owl brooch,  gorgeous owl fabric postcard and some lovely fabric.  All a surprise and sent by dear sweet Sheila as a treat for me.  Thank you so much.

Another surprise parcel was also waiting, this one from darling Michelle. The beautiful fabric, which will make adorable Christmas hexie flowers + lovely trim and thread.  I'm sorry the fairy card isn't showing up in this photo as it is really lovely.  Thank you so much Michelle.

My dear friend Christine called around with this gorgeous gift of home made Anzac biscuits. I had to take a very quick picture as John was gobbling them so quickly they were virtually disappearing before my eyes.  Delicious and such a kind thing to do.  Thank you so much, Christine.

I've got a lot of reading to do to catch up with what everyone has been doing in this past few weeks.  I'm setting aside Sunday morning, while John has his Father's Day sleep in, to see what everyone has been doing.
