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!



  1. Wow..... lots done and lots to do.... so nice to see Billy Goat Gruffles again.... he is looking well and I think enjoying his overseas holiday....

  2. Guess you have enough to keep you busy for a day or two.

  3. oooh you must really love your postman at the moment?

    I think your candlemat looked great, and it makes me want to have a go at one.

  4. Congrats on all the wins - how nice to get things in the mail!

  5. Wow, what exciting happenings at your house!
    I love the new pattern!
    Thinking of you, take care, Leslie
