Peaceful Chaos!

Whoohoo! New fabrics by Kaffe from a new website Calico & Ivy - a fabulous quilt shop, Please have a little visit to see the great new website and see the wonderful variety we are fortunate enough to have here in Perth!

Yes, I am peaceful midst all the Christmas frenzy. I had a super day yesterday, firstly visited a great new dentist, Fleur - all good news there - then went to have an x-ray, walked straight in picked up a mag and started to browse, my name was called and I was all over and done with in 15 minutes, so decided to take a drive so I would have lots and lots of fabric to do what I want to do, SEW!

This is in 'My Studio' all sorted and ready to stitch, but not on the agenda for today. I think Down Under Quilts has once again produced an exciting magazine - it seems to get better and better!
Things that make me happy - a gorgeous little stocking from Robin on Girlfriends! Day - a thimble holder all the way from Guatemala brought back to Australia in her backpack by Gwen
and a delightful little beaded scissor-keeper? from my SSCS, Caryn of Pieceful Chaos!It tells me 'be yourself' and to me that is a very significant message for me at the place where I am within myself! For this, thanks, Caryn, all organized by Chookyblue ... - Gorgeous Girls!

This is me - I love ferns!

and Baby Tears!

To you all - a message for every day of the year. Enjoy love, joy and peace, make sure you share it !

Hi Lurline! Glad you like the ornament and the scissor fob - after seeing on your blog that you lost your scissors i had to send you one! The emails you send went to my spam folder, I just found them a day or so ago! I can't wait for you to open the rest of the package!

Your ferns are gorgeous. I wish I could grow them. I am generally good with plants, but I have never been able to grow ferns.

I'm so jealous of your baby tears! In a house we lived in nearly 30 years ago I had a perfect window where they grew and grew. When we moved away they died and I've never been able to grow any since. :( blessings, marlene
