Mail for me!!!

Yay, it's here!!! I ordered this book off The Book Depository in UK just after Christmas and it's here already!!!Oh, I love it ......... I can't wait til I can sit down and have a good read. I've flicked through the beautiful pages, but so far that's all I've had a chance to do. Maybe that's just as well, just looking at the cover I can see there are soooo many beautiful items I'd love to make ... good thing I joined up with this challenge LOL. I fell in love with Tone Finnangers designs when Laila, (my stitcher's Angel in Helens Swap) sent me a couple of her gorgeous stitcheries - which I have now stitched :o) .......... (thanks Laila :o)!!!). I'm still not sure what I will make with them yet.
I've also been working on a BOM that my friend Valerie (no blog) and I bought a few years ago. She was living in Kuala Lumpur at the time so we decided to make it together when she came home. Well, she's been home a while and we still haven't finished it!!! It's definitely on my WISPs list to finish for the challenge!!!! Here's one of the blocks that I'm in the middle of quilting......
We're going to put it together "quilt-as-you-go" as it's a rather large quilt with loads of applique', yo-yos, a few beads etc and I think it will be easier that way. I'll keep you posted on the progress ;o).
Take care ......
Hugs,
Joy :o)

Joy, how lovely to have you visit - yes, the hex quiltalong will be fun, but as you can see I'm a bit of a UFO person, sadly! Would love to know where you live in Qld - you see, I'm and ex Queenslander and moved to WA 4 years ago! I just love your blog and will become a follower, so 'I'll Be Watching You'!
Hugs - Lurline♥

Wow! Peg, that is an amazing parcel. Pitty it doesn't make a detour past my place. Love the "Aussie" Food you've included.
