Busy, busy, busy.....

.... receiving mail, sending mail and doing some patchwork.


First of all I received all of these Weeks Dye Works threads in the mail, I bought them from a lady in England who was selling off her stash - there are literally 100s!  So, I am going to record them all and bag them in ziplock bags, one for each letter of the alphabet.


Then, I had to go to the Post Office to send off all of these goodies:  My Halloween Ornie Swap item, some cross stitch designs I am sending to a friend in England, an overdue Spring Bunny which I needed to send to another friend and lastly, the Travelling Pattern and the FLAG goodies to Kathy.


Lastly, one of my dear friends from book club has offered to make me a quilted craft bag but I needed to create the front panel and she will do the rest.  So, with a bit of stitching and quick patchwork after work tonight, here it is:



(Sorry, I do not know why the photos have a yellowy tinge)

Well, off to make dinner, then book club (our book this month was the marvellous "Stoner" by John Williams)

Thanks for visiting, 

hugs, 

P.S. Don't forget  it is not too late to join in the fun of the Swapaway which dear Kim and I are hosting. Click the picture below or on either side of my sidebar. Closes October 1st.
