Lazy Friday Morning!

Oooh, I've had a lovely morning - yes, with my bot on the chair in front of the computer! Here's some goodies I have to talk about! The postie has been to visit in the last few day - actually most days this week! I must tell you about the lovely gift from Mary Grace of Hooked On Needles - lookie here, the crocheted pink and white floor-duster (I don't think so!), the sweet little pink and green bag and the gorgeous ribbon. Thanks so much Mary Grace!

I saw a gorgeous baby quilt on Freda's Hive - Nanette showed the most gorgeous 'show and tell' with a couple of delightful baby quilts amongst a great display, and I was able to buy the book Baby Love in Brisbane - now that is on the other side of Australia. You will see more pics from this lovely little book!

Oh, I have a gorgeous Dino I'm about to start - you will see more of him, too!

I don't think Andi will mind me showing her banner - I have probably spent an hour this morning just browsing her site - a lovely girl who I had the fortune to meet last year in Melbourne - lots to interest there - I wandered off to other sites, too after spending a little time thinking on a little 'controversy' Andi has experienced recently. Pop over to see Andi if you have a little time to spare!

I was going to do so much this morning - have the dentist this arv - I'll have coffee downtown with daughter Angela, and so another day goes by with no sewing done - maybe catch up on some tonight!

Happy weekend!

I saw the floor duster cover on Mary Grace's blog and made one for my daughter. They're fantastic.

I love everything Nanette makes. Did you know she is a friend of mine? We live 4 hours drive apart in the state of Utah, but I head her way often and she heads my way when she can.

That book is on my must buy list. I am going to see if Amazon has a used one. Fun fun.

Lurline, I know what you mean about not getting any sewing done...this computer blogging is addictive and quilting bloggers are such nice people. I have off the next 12 days and even though I feel the need to get caught up with everyone in blogger land, I need to off this computer and sit at my sewing machine (which just got picked up from repair) and doing something. I need to decide if I am going to start something new or finish some already started projects. Hmmmm....what to do. Have fun this week.

Hi Lurline, thanks for the link to Andis blog... Have just spent the most interesting half hour reading the 'controversy comments'. Very interesting to read, thanks! Love your blog too xx
