Some Good Mail...

The weather here is Tassie has turned really cold...I am sure there's snow close by. But atleast I have plenty I can do indoors under the heater.


My little motifs pile is growing to over 20 now

It only takes about 10 minutes to whip up one of the little ones...providing the kids don't start talking to me when I am counting trebles! lol!

And some good mail arrived on Friday from the lovely Maree, her online store Ollie And May

Yesterday in the post I received Some Kind of Wonderful and Cotton Floss from Anni's shop Hatched and Patched
Both such beautiful books and I'm very tempted to make quilts from both books and also the smaller projects, but will have to put them on my 'to do' list as I already have so much to do!

Enjoy your week!

Well Lisa, Francien and myself will be fighting it out to be first in the queue for your patterns. So I am cracking that whip and telling you to hurry up with those patterns. Have just ordered my Vignette magazine and can't wait for it to arrive. Love that stash of flowers.

I love these little babies!! they are just too cute and your header looks gorgeous with them in it! Lots of fun reading too, nothing better than a nice snuggle on the couch with
a cuppa and some great books! So much inspiration!!
Big hugs

I don't think I realised you are from Tassie! It wasn't cold when I was there last month - thankfully!!

Your blog has turned to bright and spring colors, so beautiful. Love the pincushion and the crochet flower. You must have magic hands, Clara.

I love to crochet while it is cold.
