Today was a good day :o)

What a great start to the day!!! Okay, so the weather wasn't so crash hot ... in fact it was downright dull ... but for a brief moment the sun shone on my front porch!!! I love it when the mail-lady brings me a package. I've been waiting for this one that I bought on US Ebay a little over a week ago ;o). Look what I got ........ ain't it perty!!??!!This is Portabello Markets by Moda. Anyone who knows me knows that I'm a big fan of jelly rolls ........ okay, a HUGE fan LOL. But this time I've lashed out and bought a matching layer cake too - ooh I can't wait to play with these, I love the colours :o)!!
Well that was just the start of my day. I headed off to pick up my darling Mum and her friend Jill who's visiting from UK and we went up to Mt Tamborine for a bit of a stroll down Gallery Walk. This is what Mum and Jill spent most of their $$$ on - can't say I blame them LOL.
This is only part of the display at Granny Macs ... how would you choose??? Jill had one of everything that had Macadamia nuts in it!!! I grabbed some faves for DH (giant jaffas) and DD2 (sour straps).

Walked some more then had a yummy lunch up there and then found this fabulous shop - it's called Country on Tamborine.The lovely lady there ... Sylkie ... was kind enough to let me take a couple of piccies to show you all. Isn't it just fantastic!!?! I swear every time I turned around I found another thing I wanted to buy ... tee hee ... but I was good, this is what I bought ...
The items I bought were the pumpkin and the corn - perfect up there on my kitchen rack :o) and this cute little birdhouse ... just couldn't resist!!
I always love a visit to Mt Tamborine ... such a pretty place, so much to see. Gonna have to go back and see the rest another day.
Take care,
Joy :o)

What a lovely day you had with your mum & friend. I wish I could have tagged along!

I like Moda's Jelly Rolls too but I have never bought one. I really havn't seen very many patterns using these rolls....any suggestions? Please email me if you have some ideas. I'd like to try one sometime.
