It feels like Christmas around here

Firstly, I am back to my old self and feeling much better.  Thank you to everyone who sent comments to my last few posts.  I became backed up with comments to reply to so I am sending one BIG THANK YOU for your interest and lovely comments. Now to my latest post......

Back in late August, I sat at my computer all day reading blogs and entering the Blog Hop that was on at the time.  I didn't think of it as a waste of my time because I had so much fun reading about crafters from all over the world.  I showed you the buttons that came from South Africa and this last week I received more parcels.

That's right, I was lucky enough to win two prizes. I have been following Kelli's blog, Seriously..I think it needs stitches, for awhile now and I love her approach to life and crafting. Part of the prize was a gift voucher from the Fat Quarter shop in Texas and since I wanted to spend it wisely, I went through every page of the online shop and saved whatever took my fancy into my checkout basket. After  many hours of swooning and choosing, I had about $200 worth of fabrics in my basket......oh-oh!

I eventually culled a few and decided to "go for it" and get the rest.  They have arrived.

  This one is a Dear Stella fat quarter bundle called "Bukhara".
And this one is "Just Believe" for Marcus Brothers fabrics.

This one is Little Monkeys for Blend Fabrics

I got as few other fat quarters but I was most excited to receive this one......

Thank you Kelli......I had so much fun at the FQS!

Kelli also sent me some fat quarters from her stash, so I better start deciding how to use all this yumminess!

........But wait, there is more.......the parcels kept coming..

My new BOM arrived....Tail Feathers

The piping tool arrived from Sue Cleveland so I can finish off my Teddy Bear Tea Party quilt.....so if I am  MIA, it is because I am working hard or maybe just swooning over my goodies.....LOL

I am extra, extra excited today as miss M is on her way back from Europe and will arrive in the early hours of Sunday morning.  No wonder my spririts are lifted xxx

Keep an eye out for my "80 followers Acheived" GIVE AWAY.......coming soon to Bit 'n Bobs
