Big trucks and pretty threads

Ok I grant you, it’s a bit hard to see what those two things have in common. In actual fact, I don’t think they do at all … except me of course. They do have ‘me’ in common lol :o).

This is what arrived at 7a.m this morning (sorry neighbours!!!).March 2010 219 Not one petal in my rose garden was damaged … aren’t they good blokes :o)!!March 2010 224Here’s what it used to look like down the side of the house ….January 10 116 And this is the finished job…….March 2010 228 Much tidier doncha think :o)??? I’m picturing a nice little table and chairs down there, it just might be a nice shady spot to do some stitching :o).

I got some squishy mail last Friday …. I love squishy mail :o).

I ordered these gawjus threads from Cath last week and now that they’ve arrived I love them even more!!!March 2010 230 Just love those colours, I simply can’t wait to have a play with them, I’ve heard so many good things about these Cottage Garden Threads.

Our northern neighbours are all battoning down the hatches tonight as Cyclone Ului is meant to be hitting the mid north east coast of Australia in the early hours of the morning. Hoping and praying that everyone is kept safe and that damage is minimal!!!!

Love the big truck. Nice new area you have. Did you write your name in the wet cement??
Nice threads too. Are they for a certain project??
