It's Here .....

and now my Postie thinks I'm Nuts!!!!


Even prettier in real life.

My poor postie. He keeps delivering me stuff (I have been Xmas shopping on eBay) but it has not been what I wanted .... until about 10 minutes ago!  I could have given him a big old cuddle .... lol

I have finished my Hexagon Quilt (see here if you like) this morning and to get it over the finish line I have neglected the Laundry so I am off to try and catch up there and then guess what I'm doing ........ :o)

I am really enjoying the blocks and fabric choices that are starting to appear for the SKOW and am so excited that I will have a block to add soon.  And all those Xmas and A Gardener's Journal quilts that the girls are still working on are coming together nicely.  Keep up the great work.

Happy sewing ladies,
Sharon

Looks yummo - I eyed that fabric for something else I wanted to do but I chose Flora instead.

Ah Sharon your post made me smile as i was only at the post office on Thursday picking up what i thought was a crafty package for me only to realise that it was something that my son ordered. The man at the counter gave me a weird look when i made some comment about the delivery not being for me.
I have made a table topper out of Strawberry Fields so i know the love you are feeling. Anything Fig Tree i seem to love. (they have just introduced another new range-California something-looks wonderful)
Cant wait to see your blocks.
