I just want to share the 2nd part of my birthday gift from my wonderful friend Carol.

Look at all the wonderful things she sent including my very first scissor pocket. I just love everything and her, so much!! I borrowed the pic of the Red Desert Scissor Pocket off Carol's blog as her photo is better than mine:) Carol, as I mentioned, your birthday pressie will be later but hopefuly it will be worth the wait:)

A wonderful birthday
I know this posting is late but I just wanted to share the lovely gift I received from Carol for my birthday. She really spoiled me (like she always does). Carol, if you are reading this, from what reading your last email, it seems that my emails don't seem to be getting though. I will try emailing you again today. Not sure what is happening:(

On Saturday I had a lovely visit from Anne S and Alison. It is always a great laugh when Anne visits so it was doubly a riot with Alison as well.

Anne dropped off 2 more wonderful models that I will frame for her and borrow for the shop - Sampler Lady and Bordeaux Sampler, plus Barnabee's Bride that she also stitched for me.

Thanks so much Anne!! I look forward to catching up again soon:)

A Wonderful Gift
I have received a lovely gift from Carol today. We decided that as Christmas was so hectic that we would send each other our Christmas gifts in 2 parts - 1 part in time for Christmas and the 2nd part after Christmas. Carol's wonderful part 2 just arrived and I LOVE it!!!! I will have my part 2 for her leaving this week:) Carol stitched this beautiful Shepherds Bush Pin Cushion for me and also sent a Red Sox DVD which I am going to watch on my day off on Thursday, and a box of candy (they are not in the pic as hubby and I ate them:) and some lovely body cream:) I am one spoilt girl:)

My lovely fob arrived
My beautiful fob and package arrived from Cathy B. On Valentines Day as well. What a lovely surprise!!! Cathy made me a gorgeous fob from Prairie Schooler. I honestly don't know how she parted with it. LOL. Also in the wonderful package were Crescent Colour threads, Silkweaver fabrics, a Lizzie Kate design (with dragonflies of course) and a pack of heart candy. Very appropriate for Valentines Day. What great timing Cathy!! It took a bit longer than normal to reach me here in Australia as the package was inspected by customs and was held for quarantine. It would have been because of the candy Cathy included. I am guess that when it went through the x-ray scanner in customs that they may have thought we were involved in a drug ring or something. LOL. I would have loved to see their faces when they saw it was candy:)
What a wonderful gift

I can't seem to load pics at the moment. I will try and post them again later.

Framed Samplers
I picked my samplers up from the framer today. I realised after I had taken the photos that I had not taken the cardboard corners off:) I am really happy with them:) I stitched paradim Lost and my friend Sandra model stitched The Token for me:)

Also, I am looking for back issues of Quilt Sampler by Better Homes & Gardens. Does anyone have issues they would be willing to part with? I would be happy to trade or pay for them. I am looking for back issues going to 2004. I already have Fall/Winter 2007 and Fall/Winter 2006. If anyone can help, please let me know:)

A Start on L&L SAL
Firstly a belated happy Australia Day to all Aussies reading my Blog. I hope everyone had a great day. Hubby and I went down to Glenbrook to join the festivities there. We didn't stay too long though as we both have quite bad colds so we came home earlier than we normally would so we could rest. Today we had a quiet day at home. Tomorrow is a public holiday so I guess we will see how we are feeling as to whether we go out somewhere.

On the stitching front I have mainly been doing secret stitching but I did start my Earth Angel which is the one I am stitching in the Lavender & Lace SAL.
