Happy Thoughts!

This gorgeous bag goes back quite a long time and I have received so many comments over the years. It has a lovely little story to it! In my very early days of blogging I was in a swap and Stephanie of Loft Creations was my partner. When this gorgeous bag arrived I was shocked - was this the sort of style and quality we used in Blogger Swaps? Wasn't I the Lucky Girl to enter into this world of quilt blogging! Thank you so very much Stephanie - love you♥ I'm sorry, my linky thingo is not working, I'm sure so many of you know of Stephanie, though!


Dear son, David who is bobbing around in the Indian Ocean on a gas platform at the moment, is our gardener, Good Boy, and has grown these delightful Kangaroo Paws, the floral emblem of the state of Western Australia - the yellow ones are not quite so common though just lovely, I think!

It is nice to be almost back to normal after the Festival Season, here I sit trying to decide if I will take myself shopping hoping the sale crowds have settled. Happy stitching Girls!
