Mailman, Mailman…. deliver me goodies…..and my quilt.

I was very excited to have the mailman deliver me a parcel last week.

Fiona from BubzRugz sent me 3 luggage tags to put on mine and Mr. T’s luggage to go over to WA for my son’s wedding.

How special are these?

Now I don't have to have a bit of scrappy fabric to distinguish our luggage. :) I love them and so does my Mr.T…thank you so much Fiona!! You are a very special lady :)

It’s not long now….only 4 more sleeps and then we are in that plane and off we gooooooo…..

I want to thank you all for your input into helping me decide on what to do on my quilt I did last week. I ended up leaving it as it was and machine quilted it all over with a big swirly pattern…

DPP_0004 and then around the outside border I did a big leaf and vine design…I amazed myself at how well it turned out…although I wouldn't say perfect but overall it does look good and it was different to do leaves instead of swirls. I think it was the fact that I held my tongue right lol.

I ended up using a green and white stripe fabric from my stash for the edging. So its all done now.

DPP_0001I took some photos of some flowers in the garden but I will show you these another time.

I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend and hugs to all……Vicki  Purple Flowers

Fiona is such a sweetie and so thoughtful, those tags are really lovely. Your quilt..Beautiful! Just love it finished and it looks great with that binding. I just love the quilting you did. Did you do it all free motion on your sewing machine? I hope so, because I want to have a go at doing something like that too. It turned out great.. Hope you can sleep these next four nights, now it's getting so close..... how exciting xxxx
