I cleared out our letter box yesterday and found something really lovely for me amongst the nasty window faced envelopes that are addressed to The Golfer.
Seeing a Royal Mail stamp always excites me, as I know it will be something from my friend Anne, from the shores of the UK. Inside was one of Anne’s own cards, and a little bag…..
After dropping The Golfer at the club yesterday for his usual Saturday stroll hitting that little white ball, I stopped in at my local favourite coffee shop, via the newsagent next door, and enjoyed a hot chocolate while reading…..
I very nearly didn’t pick up this copy, as being Australian and not really into Halloween, I didn’t think there’d be much in it to please, but I noticed the front cover mentioned an interview with Tula Pink and thought that would be interesting (which it was!). Then imagine my delight at flipping through the pages to find this gorgeous quilt by one of my favourite quilters/bloggers…..

I did support our local industry too, and was pleased to see a quilt from Deirdre of The Quilted Crow Girls on the front cover
and so excited to see an article about Belinda’s second placing in the Wallhanging category at the Home Machine Quilting Show in Salt Lake City, Utah!!
It’s a tantalising Spring day here in Melbourne town and I really should be out weeding the garden – it’s staring balefully at me! But I had such an awful sleep last night that I can barely get out of my own way!! I am getting the washing done though, as “they” say there’s going to be precipitation in one form or another all week. And I may spend the afternoon catching up on some hand stitching and taped tv – there are two episodes of Vera awaiting (and hopefully I don’t fall asleep half way through!!)
A combination of sunshine and rain has brought out the leaves on our Silver Birch; this time last week there was no sign of green, and now….
What are you up to this Sunday?
