Lucky me (96)


Doesn't it make you feel special to receive goodies in the post, especially when they're prezzies from someone you've never met. Today I got a package from Anita, who celebrated her birthday on the same day as me. She sent me two knitted dish cloths - which are far too nice to be used to wash dishes, so may find their way into the bathroom. 



She also sent me six of the cutest little quilt-bug 
badges. I'm thinking that they would look good on plain centre blocks of a small quilt, maybe some more wonky stars. Any other ideas?










And since I haven't posted any pictures of Rosie recently - although she never does anything but lay around it's really difficult to get photographs as she always gets up and fusses around me when I appear. Here I've managed to catch her just as she spotted me and before she started moving.







I haven't posted any pictures of sewing recently, although I seem to have been doing heaps of it. I need to get some pictures taken then I can share them.

What a nice surprise to get in the mail.
How about a little sampler quilt with one of each of the blocks that is on the pins?

Those quilt bug pins are too cute. Rosie is adorable!

Cute pins - maybe in the middle of smalle friendship stars - in keeping with the spirit of the gift.

Hi Amanda,
think I have worked out how to send a messsage - it never ceases to amaze me how quickly one can respond from these blogs - obviously it can get very addictive. It also never ceases to amaze me how many Quilters have "Cats" - I too love them.
cheers Dawn
