& A BIT OF THAT.....
So I arrived home earlier this week from work to find a parcel waiting for me on the table....inside was a lovely grovelly letter from the very talented & funny Trash...
There were three very pretty apology pictures featuring her Donkey
How cute is this
Inside was this BEAUTIFUL piece of material
Earlier this year Trash & I were teamed up in The International Womens Day Swap well Trash had just realised that we were to swap 4 fat quarters & that she had only sent me 3....not that I had noticed as she had also sent me some great trim ...so she had sent this to make it up to me....How nice was that....... I think I might frame the Donkeys & put them up on my wall then in years to come when she is famous (well more than she is now) I can sell them for an humungous amount of money....:)
My nephew Darren lives with his wife Nadine & their three children Tayla,Matthew & Connor in a place called Roxby Downs about 6hrs drive away...for non Aussies this is a large mining town... so we dont get to see them that often....they were down this week as Matthew has to see an Orthodontist... my sister Glenice has always encouraged Tayla with sewing,she has done some stitcheries, so this week while she had her for the day they made a block, my sister did the cutting & Tayla did all the sewing on the machine & will buttonhole the heart, I think she did an excellent job & as you can see she looks very proud
Tayla and her Nanny

Well I have a heap more pics but I'll save them for later ...I have actually done some sewing this week..!!!
