Double Excitement!!

Yes, it's double Happy Dancing all around the lounge room today - oops! There go the neighbours again complaining about our clog-dancing pet elephant! :0) I have TWO exciting things to share with you today, so BRACE YOURSELF!!

OK ... the first one was some yummy mail that arrived. I told you a little while ago that I was one of the lucky winners in Bronwyn Hayes' recent give away ... well ... my prize pattern arrived today - WAHOOOOOOO!!! And it was so beautifully wrapped that it was almost to pretty to undo ...

Don't you just LOVE that paper!! So many of Bronwyn's gorgeous illustrations. I finally brought myself to rip the sticker to open it, though and inside I found ...


OOOOOOOOOHHHH!!! More Happy Dancing!! Bronwyn's "My Little Tea House" bag pattern! Now I have been drooling over the sample for this pattern at my 'home-away-from-home' for ages and now I can make one of my very own!! Hmmm ... as soon as that 'To Do' list shortens a little. SIGH!! And don't you love the little card on the dotty ribbon that features one of Bronwyn's stitchin' ladies?! I think it's going to join my inspirations pinboard. A HUGE

THANK YOU!!

to Bronwyn for such a wonderful prize - I'm pretty sure that I'm addicted to Bronwyn's stitcheries, especially her stitchin' ladies.

Now on to the SECOND exciting thing to share with you today. It actually involves Marion and my home-away-from-home. Marion is having a HUGE ...

Busting At The Seams Sale!!

It runs from Thursday February 25 to Sunday February 28 and a 'little birdie' told me that there will be MASSIVE savings to be had, with some fabrics being reduced to as little as $5 per metre! WOW! OK ... those dates are SOOOOOO marked in my diary, cos a gal can never REALLY have TOO much fabric, right?! Tee! Hee! Hee! Specials only apply to IN STORE sales, so you'll just HAVE to come and visit Marion at Quilters Angel at Highfields to see WHY this has become my home-away-from-home.

And while I was telling you all about this, I had a ... THOUGHT!! It's OK, I was sitting down, so I didn't hurt myself! :0) My thought was this ... maybe there are some blogging buddies out there who would all like to kill TWO birds with ONE stone. Well ... not literally of course, cos that would be mean to birdies!! Perhaps we can combine a little stash-stocking at Marion's sale with the opportunity to have a bloggy get-together?! If there are any bloggers within COOEE of Toowoomba who think they might like to check out Marion's "Busting At The Seams Sale" AND meet some blogging buddies in person for a cuppa and a chat ... let me know. We just might make an outing of this if there is enough interest. And if not ... All the more fabric for ME! Tee! Hee! Hee!

I'm off to take a closer look at my lovely prize from Bronwyn and perhaps juggle my "To Do" list to see if it will fit in a bit higher up the list! :0) Hope you're having a fabulous start to your week. Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!
CHEERS!

It seems there is just too much frivolity happening in your neck of the woods. Hey - enjoy that pattern I saw a sample last weekend and almost indulged - too sweet - like all Bronwyn's designs. I should know, I have a whole lot of them!

Gail said...

I'd love to come. Unfortunately, I live literally thousands of miles away!:( Maybe another time, when I'm actually in Australia.

Elizabeth said...

She who dies with the most fabric wins, right ;). The sale sounds like fabulous fun and congrats on your pattern win!

Janice said...

I'm sure you can juggle your "To Do" list and fit in your new treasure. Wish I was within Cooee of Highfield, but we'll be headed off west that weekend, not north. I'm sure you will have a lovely gathering of stitching bloggers.

Sandi said...

Go ahead and start that project. Then you can add it to your "projects in progress" list and your "to do" list will be shorter. :-) The sale sounds great but it would be a long trip to get there. :-)

Drooling all over my keyboard....
How lucky are you Miss Kris!!

Sounds like you could do some serious damage to the credit card at Marion's sale.... and why wouldn't you - it is a SALE after all!!
