Hug Swap has arrived!!!

I was so excited when the mailman came today ... look what he brought me!!! I just love the gorgeous rosy paper :o)!!.......... Thank you so much to Narelle .... she made these gorgeous items just for me!! These are just beautiful ... Narelle's stitches are so neat and even!!!Thank you so much Narelle I love them and as you can see they are just perfect with my favourite mug :o)!!!

I've managed to get my new 'puter to make friends with my printer and scanner now, so hopefully very soon there will be more PDF patterns from JoyPatch coming on my website and onto my blog. As you can clearly see from my dear Sophie's expression ... she's had enough of my yelling at the new 'puter LOL. Oh well, one more battle won ..... still a lot more to fight I fear though :o/.

DH and I managed to get out in our little boat the other day and I took a few pics of the "Dawn Treader". Parts of the new Narnia movie "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" are being filmed about 10min from where I live - so when we were out on the bay I took these pics of the ship for you to see!!! Isn't it impressive!!!I can't wait to see the movie ..... I love the 'Chronicles of Narnia' ;o).

There's not much time left for you to enter our "Among the Gumtrees" giveaways!!!! Fiona from Mother's Cupboard is offering a kit to make her gorgeous 'Family Love' Wallhanging!! The kit includes :- stitchery fabric, border and binding fabric, backing fabric plus easy to follow instructions and a pack of Madeira Variegated Rayon Thread. And don't forget to visit Jenny of Elefantz blog too .... you could win all of these goodies.....

Very cute Joy. I was hoping to get to see the boat but I will have to wait for the movie, it has been great for the local area. Take care
