How lucky am I?

I was very lucky this week…I feel truly blessed!

How awesome is Millie from Millie’s Quilting Look what she sent me for the PIF she had that I joined up with.

PIF from Millie in USA

An absolutely gorgeous quilt…wow! Just love it!! and a book with Sunbonnet Sues in it…Absolutely fabulous! a little vile of incense cones that have the most amazing scent. Thank you Millie I really love all that you sent me and I love the quilting on the quilt. You are so clever! Hugs hugs.


I was also blessed again by my Stitcher’s Angel gifts. I was totally overawed with all I received. My beautiful stitchers angel was Tarnyia from tarnyiamarycatherine blog who is in my favourite state…Western Australia.

Here’s what she sent me and thank you so much Tarnyia …I love it all!! hugs hugs and I hope your Stitchers Angel sends you lots of goodies too.

Gifts from Stitchers Angel Swap October 2009 (2) 

They were all wrapped but I opened one and thought….aha….camera Vicki!! So my first parcel I opened had the most gorgeous scissor keep and inside the scissor keep was a fabulous pair of scissors and a chalk pencil. :) Love them, plus there was some threads in my favourite colours :)

Then I opened this lot of surprises…

This is stunning and is about 5 foot long….I love it and will hang it on my computer door. I have it draped over my lounge atm to show you.

Thanks heaps Tarnyia you have thoroughly spoilt me and I love everything you sent me. :)

I posted my parcel off to my Stitchers Angel and its gone to Brazil. I hope she likes all her goodies too. It was such fun putting them all together.


Then I got another parcel….from the USA.

I had a spend up seems how the Aussie dollar was so good against the American dollar and all that…plus I needed more fabric.


Just got a few yards :)


It’s my turn to have a Christmas Freebie on the Gum Trees blog on Monday so I hope you all like what I made for you. I have been using mine even tho its not Christmas Tee Hee.


Take care and hugs to all……Vicki
