I really must try to get to the post office more often but since Australia Post work actual business hours and since (mostly ) I do too , that means getting into my local PO is a real pain some days. At the moment having the postie drop my parcels off at my front door would be a real time saver for me. As it is, I often don't get to the post office for a week or more at a time. (The whiny , pity party part of this post is now officially over )
Monday marked about 10 days since my last PO foray and my postage dude had a plethora of parcels and mail for me. He likes to guess what's in each parcel before he forks them over. It's become a ritual.
From the wonderful Susan at Canadian Abroad.
A closer look at her stiffy snowflakes (sorry that's an in joke ) Aren't they gorgeous ? I have coveted these from the very first second I saw them weeks ago and now I own some!
I adore hand made ornaments and these look gorgeous on my tree.
And from the delectable Sara over at Lone Sock Productions who knows about my fondness for all things Babushka.
My own little gym bag (that will never see the inside of a gym ) Hopefully the bag will be appeased if I drive past one occasionally.
This is what vacuum packed selvages look like when you unpack them. A mountain of selvages.
After these two parcels I'm officially in selvage heaven. A BIG thank you to Susan, Sara, Thea, Char, Michelle, P, and Kat who kindly donated their selvages to my cause. I'm going to get cracking on that quilt while I'm on holidays. I cant wait !
And finally but not least -From Becks over at Sarcastic Quilter. Quilting Software so I can get creative while still sitting on my patootie. This may help me avoid future design disasters.
Thank you ladies. You made my week.
I now haven't officially cooked dinner for 7 days. Some one call the Guinness book of world records. I'm in the running for the title of slackest person on the planet. Work is totally kicking my butt at the moment and I just don't have the reserves to cook when I get home. I'll be back on Friday (hopefully with my sanity intact -sort of ) for the final FTF for 2011. Hope to see you all there !
