Mail continued–both coming and going…

I received a couple of mail items that I had ordered.  Getting things you order in the mail is just as exciting as receiving prizes!

First up: I bought this book and fabrics from Patty.  She was selling off some of her stash so she could buy a car for a relative that needed one.  I was awed by her generosity.  I love these batik fabrics and I have been meaning to buy this book for a while.

Here is another book I decided I needed after looking at the whirlygig blocks that Jackie has been making.   I can’t wait to try some of the patterns in this book.  Have to finish something first though. Smile

I also ordered this pattern from Leanne from down under.  Just because I like it.  Another thing that I am going to make soon!

DD # 2 mentioned this morning that I haven’t posted for a while.  She’s right – it has been over a week.   But she’s been busy.  I received 24 more hexies from her this week.  And she’s starting to act like a real quilter.  Look at these batches, all tied up with ribbon!

I’ve also got some goats – from the Sisterhood of the Travelling Goats organized by Elaine.  I have to put Laura’s goats in a setting – we’ve decided they don’t want to be mountain goats or snow goats.

So here they are among my cacti, waiting for me to make a move.  My DGD said “Dad look at the bunnies on the cactus!”

And I have to embellish Fiona's goat – which came from the land down under with its own passport by the way.  Laura has made a nice start to it.  Hmm what shall I do with it next???

A few things have gone out in the mail too in the last week.  This block for Myra.

For Narelle - the December hexie  from the Inchy Flower Swap hosted by Jane.

My November block for Linda in the Christmas block swap.  I forgot to take a picture so had to grab hers off the blog.

I’ve finally got my Secret Santa gifts done.  I made a little candle mat and a Christmasy apron.

That’s all for now….whew….lots of comings and goings in the mail!
