giveaway win

Oh I cant believe this !!!!

Since getting this new computer I couldnt Publish posts

With much help from my Cyber Angel ,we worked that out then it woulnt let me put photos to my Blog

Decided to give it another go this morning and low and behold it worked

Well I havent tried to publish yet, so my fingers are crossed

Any way I wanted to show the gorgeous goodies I received from Vikki at Sew Usefull Designs

She had a surprise french giveaway a few weeks ago and I was lucky enough to win

Delectable croissant pin cushion Looks good enough to eat with beautiful french pin heads

I have an idea for the charm squares but have to finish what Iam working on A quilt for my adopted great granddaughter

Hopefully will show photos of that soon

Fingers crossed

Op shop Find

I found this little beauty in the Op Shop Well I couldnt just leave it there couldI
The embroidery is just lovely
Today was the warmest we have had all week so I spent it in the garden
Tonight I have a very sore hand
Must have got something in it It is very sore and swollen
Maybe I will just have to spend tomorrow sewing to rest it

Great mail

I had some trouble yesterday with my post and had to call on my lovely cyber angel Sheila
I'll see what I can do tonight
I received this lovely parcel from Jill of Jillybeans
Jill does the most beautiful embroidery
I was lucky enough to have her as my partner in a christmas decoration swap a couple of years ago and now I have some more of her lovely work
A seashell bag a gorgeous pink (love Pink) pincushion and the most exquisit embroidered angel which Jill says is in Lorraines memory
I love them all
Thank you Jill

Its Cold

The nights have been very cold lately, but as you can see I have been putting my comfort quilts to good use
Thanks again dear Lyn and the girls
I had to buy a new computer
Oh it is so frustrating
Just learnt to find my way around the old one ,now having trouble finding things in this one
Need to remember how to put icons on the screen so I can find my way in with only one click
I like things easy where I dont have to think to much
Off to play some more now
