Finally my Stash

Well girls you have been waiting for a week for me to show you my stash. Well first we had to get a mat, cutting wheel and other bits and pieces so that we could get started. Oh i forgot to put in my new ruler. Well i do have one of those just forgot to put it into the photo.

Then well we need some materials. Off to Spotlight we go and a sale we found, I no that it may look like a lot but living out here i can not just pop down to the shops as it is a 3 to 4 hour drive. So what do you think! i think that i can do something now.
Then after getting all of that material at Spotlight the lovely ladies told me about a wonderful shop just down the street so i just had to have a look and what did i find. Some lovely bright materials and on the way home up on the tablelands found another wonderful little shop and just had to have some of the bright materials from there also. So now i can now sit and sort out something small to start out with.Well if any of you have any suggestion's for me to start with please let me no as i am ready to start. Well that is it for me we are mustering tomorrow and over the weekend so i will be back on Monday to do my Blog hopping and read what you have all been up to. So have a great weekend and see you all next week.

MAIL !!!!!

Hi everyone I am so excited and have been all weekend. I got Mail. Where i live we only get mail once a week on Friday and there was a parcel for ME. It was from my Mug Hug partner Joy and it is just so beautiful. Here have a look.
Isn't it just the most beautiful Mug Hug and mat. Thank you Joy so very much. My family said that i was like a kid at Christmas time and all weekend when a cuppa was made for me they all said, "do we put the thing around the cup" and I had to remind them what it was as you no MEN just don't get it.

Many thanks to Jenny and Tozz for organising the swap, also as this was my first stitchery and swap and i had a great time making my Mug Hug and mat and to recieve a parcel does make you feel so wonderful. Thank you all the ladies out there in Blogland this lady is on a high. Will close for now hope everyone has a great day.
