And it just keeps coming

Lucky, lucky me.  Two parcels arrived yesterday.
Divine fabric, sweeties and a note pad from Lynda.  Thank you so much, Lynda, I love everything.
I won one of Shell's wonderful giveaways at The Raspberry Rabbits.  I adore everything Michelle makes.  As well as being super creative she is a sweetheart.  She popped in some gorgeous wool felt and sweeties, not just for me, but for lovely Christine too.  I'll be seeing Christine at NOTY tomorrow, so hopefully I'll be able to resist eating her chocolates till then.
The beautiful grey Tilda fabric in the background is a fat quarter I purchased at A Little Different.  The grey fabric is for Jenny's wonderful free project (see yesterday's post). Hard to believe I walked out having only spent $6.  I could have happily taken home one of everything in the shop.

However, that morning these two bundles of gorgeousness I had ordered at Jane's fabulous on-line shop arrived.  Layer cakes - more French General - Chateau Rouge and a new range, to me anyway, called a Winters Lane.  Very beautiful, and just the colours I love. I bought them with some birthday money from my mum and dad.  So I didn't want to be greedy and go wild at A Little Different - anyway there's always Mother's Day for another trip to Geelong.

Sorry I can't show what I've been sewing but there are a lot of secret sewers at the moment and I'm one of them.  I'm making for the Mill Rosie Swap, a red work swap and now Cheryl's St Patricks Day Swap.  Pop over and visit Cheryl at Gone Stitch'n - you might want to play along too.


This project is divine and there is a tutorial too.  Huge thanks to Carole at Novelee 02.  Here's the LINK for this project and the gorgeous BLOG too.
