Things in the Post & Shopping

I received the the postcard & ATC's
(right) from swaps I've been in.

The theme was
Christmas and some people are very
clever with what they've done.

This week the mail man has been very busy. He brought me this very quirky wall hanging (left) from my friend in NZ. I'm sorry the detail doesn't show up very well here. It's a crazy lady (looking a lot like me) running amok snipping everything in sight with her trusty scissors. You just have to smile when you look at it.

Wednesday I went to lunch with a girlfriend and of course we had to do a little retail therapy. I bought 16.5 metre of fabric for a grand total of $24.75. I plan to use these as quilt backing through the coming year. I bought some more black and white fq's for a project that I have in mind for a next year - a b & w grandmother's flower garden quilt, English paper pieced. Something to take with me when we're travelling about.

Also bought 6 reels of quilting thread that was on special on a buy one, get one free from a local quilt shop.

Hi Sue
What a successful shopping day you had. It's not often over here we get bargains like that. I managed to get some kids fabric yesterday for $3 metre for backing, As I've got two littlee grandys I'm sure I'll use it in the future.
I love your wallhanging from your friend in NZ.
