Parcels Make Me Smile!!

I bet you all love to get parcels as much as I do! I LOVE it when Postman Pat (actually, I'm not sure his name is 'Pat' at all, but it sure aint 'Patricia' cos he's got a beard like a srub turkey's nest!! Tee! Hee! Hee!) leaves parcels for me and I've received two this week already - YAY!

The first was one I was starting to worry about, cos it had been over three weeks since I clicked "Buy Now". With the Aussie Dollar at an all-time high, I just couldn't resist hopping over to the Fat Quarter Shop for a little spree! And I actually clicked the "Buy Now" button a few times. :0) Wanna see????

Yummy, Yummy fabrics!!! The first is some more 'Rural Jardin' fabric ... you know I just fell in LOOOOOOOVE with the whole range!! This is actually for a specific purpose ... that RJ layer cake I bought earlier in the year will one day be a quilt just for ME and this red yumminess is for the binding. And since it was THERE and I was THERE ... I clicked "Buy Now" on some more scrummy 'Pure' fabrics. The wall hanging I'm working on at the moment is made using some of this fun range, but I also have some charm squares and more design ideas in the cupboard that these will help with. Don't you love the cotton tape?! I have NO idea what I'll use it for, but it sure is pretty! Tee! Hee! Hee!

The second parcel arrived today from Fishpond, my fave online book shop stop ... free postage in Australia if you spend over $50 ... which SOMEHOW I always manage to do! :0) My new book should be very interesting ...

It's called "One Magic Square" and gives lots of practical advice on how you can feed your family with a vege patch that's one square metre. Hmmm ... well, my vege patch is a big bigger than that, so I guess I'll just share the left-over produce with friends and family! Tee! Hee! Hee! You know I've been playing in the vege patch for a while now and I thought this book might help me get a bit more organised with my small area. We'll see how we go! I'll have to take an updated photo of the vege patch to share with you ... everything is growing like mad! The lemon tree is bouncing back after the attack of the killer caterpillars, the tomatoes are turning into triffods and following in the footsteps (do plants actually have footsteps?!?!) of the world-domination minded snowpeas. We've already enjoyed a fresh zucchini from my little vege patch and lots more are in our gastronomic future (good thing we LOOOOOOVE zucchinis!! Tee! Hee! Hee!) and the cucumbers are getting bigger every day, too. YUMMO! A fresh salad summer coming up for us! :0)

That's about it for me for today ... still trying to recover from my big weekend. Oh ... and I will be uploading the pattern for "Blooming Butterflies" to the Tag Along Teddies web site later this week, so if you're looking for a quick, fabulous project to make for Christmas gifties, stay tuned. I'm off to pop the kettle on now ... just call me "Polly"! Tee! Hee! Hee! May all your mail be parcels! Til next time ...

Hi Kris,
I'm sure lots of Aussies are spending money in the US at the moment. I just couldn't resist some American magazines.

Such yummy fabric you've purchased!

Have fun with your vegie patch.
