No bills..just thrills :o)

Oh don't you love it when the postman doesn't gives you any bills, but a lovely bundle of fabric and a pattern all the way from Australia?! Woohoo!

Here's what I got:

Firstly some fabric I bought off Ebay. I wasn't planning to buy anything, but clicky-clicky and next thing I knew I'd bought some lovely quality fabrics from a lady in Hemel-Hempstead. Ebay is just too easy, you don't even need to find your wallet. If you want to have a browse her Ebay shop is Fiddlesticks Fabrics & Crafts. She was very quick to reply to emails and to ship..and her prices are very good!

Secondly, I was Moore Patchwork & Quilting's winner of her give away and she has sent me a lovely pattern all the way from Australia. I can't wait to have a go at put this Blooming Wallet together. Thanks Lyn!

'Til next time...

Packages of fabric and goodies are sooo much fun! The fabric you ordered is beautiful. Looking forward to seeing what becomes of it.

A day without bills is a rare one indeed.
I love your signature. What a great idea.

Oh yes - so much better than bills. My daughter in college says sometimes she orders her books online instead of going to the bookstore just so she can get fun mail!

Ah yes! Clicky clicky, very dangerous indeed. I have banned myself from Ebay (although I have just recently book some more books - couldn't help myself... so clearly not a very strict banning)

That looks like a fun wallet - lucky you!
