Well last Wednesday while I was catching up on some blog reading and lamenting not winning the cross lotto and visiting that whole I never win anything mode. I noticed that I had won a blog giveaway from Sarah at Patchwork Plus. I have been wearing her store badge on my blog and visiting her store - which has some excellent specials and felt very much like minded with her - mid thirties wanting a fabric shop. So I have decided to leave her badge on my blog for another month to celebrate my win of Holly's Bouqut bag pattern by Janelle Wind and O cherry o panel and frankly I think I am happier with this prize than with the $90 million (OK I know I could buy a lot of fabric with that).

Look how spoilt we were in the Christmas in July swap organised by Mrs Martins Quilt Shop. Huge thanks to Karen for organising and to my swap partner Karen. The children loved opening all the little parcels. Each of the family has a new litle sack for a new little treat?? I have some beautiful new decorations, some chocolates I wrestled from the children, a new present pincushion and this darling stitchery. It was just the best time opening it all up. I hope my partner was equally excited with her haul. A real highlight on a dismal winter day like we are having in Adelaide today. I think I will go do some more Christmas craft, do some July finishes and eat my choccies.
