Christmas came early...

Yesterday the postman rang the door with an armful of parcels (I've been shopping...) and amongst all these parcels was a lovely package from Lynda all the way from Australia. I won Lynda's giveaway earlier this month and she was kind enough to send me a bag full of goodies. I really like the Cherry Ripes...they are a bit like Turkish Delight mixed with a Bounty -- Yummy!



Lynda also included a Christmas decoration for my tree. I just love the stitching on this and I can't wait to get the tree up so I can proudly display it. Thanks so much Lynda I really love everything you sent.




Last Saturday was Rocheberie Quilters. It was a very enjoyable day...Caroline has a great summary of the day on her blog and I have posted some pictures of our show and tell on the Rocheberie Website.

During the afternoon I got quite a bit of the stitching done on the Arm Chair Caddy and now I can start on the appliqué.
