My life is very exciting at the moment 🙂 I’ve had some lovely things arrive in the mail, won something and have a friend who has started blogging – all very exciting I think!
First of all, my old friend (as in long time, not old in age, lol) Yvonne started a blog! She and I have known each other for about 18 years and before that our parents were friends way back in the mid 60s. When we first met we did a lot of sewing together for our little boys – we sewed tracksuits and pant and sweaters and shorts and.. and.. and.. We also did bulk cooking together and generally had lots of fun! Boy, we had a lot of energy in those days…. hee hee! Anyway, she tried to get me to quilt many years ago but I told her I didn’t have the patience. Imagine her surprise when I got back from Saudi and told her I had learned how to quilt 🙂 So now we get together in school holidays, when we can, and quilt…. Ok, enough rambling, go check out her blog Bonnie and the Sisters Lair and welcome her to blogland!!
The mail last week was lots of fun. First my free motion foot that I ordered back in August and took forever to get here from Brisbane arrived:
The next thing in the mail was a total surprise – a letter from Di with this cute card and panel in it:
The next piece of excitement was also a surprise!!! I left a comment on Tozz’s Hot Potato post to “win” this pattern for a month:
With 66 comments left on her post I didn’t think my chances were that good, and when I saw her post that said there was a winner I thought… oh well, it won’t be me, but let’s see who it is… and imgine that… it was ME!!! I really couldn’t believe it! So I get it for a month, and the best part of this giveaway is that after a month I get to give it away to someone else!!! Yay! All of you who left a comment on Tozz’s post and missed out… well, you get another chance in a month 🙂 I don’t know about you, but I think that is pretty cool!
I think that is enough excitement for a bit, don’t you? Well, maybe just a bit more since tomorrow Yvonne is coming to sew all day long 🙂 Yay! We will let you know what we get done!
