Late Introduction

Hi Ladies, posting a late intro here!

I am Joy from Days Filled with Joy,  an Aussie who lives in Saudi Arabia.

I've been here in Oz for the past two months, which has been great because I could order my book and be sure it arrived safely, rather than trusting the mail system over there.... it is now in my suitcase ready take back...


I was going to buy thevfabric here in Australia as well, but then decided I'd better buy it when I get back to Arabia because my suitcase is too heavy already :) So when I get back I'll go shopping and then post my fabric choice... I'll be behind, but hopefully I'll catch up soon.

I'm enjoying seeing all the blocks that have been made!
