Goodies in the mail, and don't forget my Giveaway!!

I just love it when the parcel lady comes!!! I get so excited :o)!!!
I ordered some goodies from Hancocks in Paducah U.S just over a week ago and they arrived today!! Great service :o). Oooops... I forgot to grab the camera before I opened the package so you see before you what happens when a fabric addict gets a parcel in the mail!!!!Look at the goodness inside ......I've got an official Hancocks 40th Anniversary catalogue ...... absolutely CHOCKAS with LOADS of different fabrics to drool over ..... heaven to my eyes :o)!!!
I got a couple of gorgeous mini honeybuns from Moda Bake-shop ....
"Objects of Desire" in the one ... and the other, an absolute favourite of mine ... "Aviary" - mmmmm love it :o)!!!! And you get a free pattern for a super little bag made from the honey bun strips!!
Here's the delicious fabrics I bought ... the pink and the floral are from "Beach House" range (they're to go with the "Beach House" jelly roll I have) and the others are just random ones I liked the look of :o). Here's what I've been up to ... 30 pinwheel blocks!! These are all from the Portabella Market range - 3 sisters. I just love the rich colours.Don't forget to check out my "Dragonflight" pattern giveaway!!! You can still enter, just leave a comment on my blog before Saturday night at 8pm (Brisbane time). You can leave a comment on each blog entry this week, and if you'd like an extra entry post about it on your blog and link it back to my blog :o). Easy Peasy :o)!!!
