It's a Bag!!! and Much More

I had a Moda Charm pack ....well I have few actually ....... back to it ....... I had a Moda Charm pack and I wanted to make a bag so I opened up the charm pack and sewed together a few, quilted, made handles, inserted lining and woo-laa here it is

Also I have made the 2nd of my blocks for the Mystery Charm Squares BOM 2011

Then I also have received in the mail my prize from The Stitching Room
A lovely Bunting pattern

When I was on nightshift a couple of weeks ago I was looking through Book Depository for something to do and came across a book I had to have.  I love things to do with or read about the American Civil War ....  my favourite movie of all time is 'Gone with the Wind'.... so I ordered The Civil War Love Letter Quilt book.  It is on my long term plan to make as it has 121 quilt blocks.  So at the moment it will sit on my bookcase to read at leisure.

and finally here is an updated picture of Snowy.  He is 6 months old in 2 weeks time.

Look What's Come in The Mail

Haven't I been a lucky girl in the last couple of weeks.  I have had some exciting parcels turn up in the mail.

First up I had these wonderful embroidered houses turn up from Bev at Kainga Happenings.  Aren't they lovely.  I was thinking of making them into a wall hanging, but now I am thinking of cushions.

Then I needed to get some material (obviously) so in the mail from Fabric Shack came my order.  I love it when they have there cheap postage and it gets to me so fast.

Then finally from Terri's Place I received my giveaway I won from the recent blog hop. Yay.

Just waiting on one more little parcel.  Another blog win, this time from The Stitching Room.  I won a pattern of a Bunting.

Icon Invitional Trampoline Competition

Last weekend Kristen and I flew up to Auckland for the first trampoline competition of the year.  When we came home on the Sunday it was with 3, silver and bronze.  Obviously Kristen was very happy with this.  She also easily qualified for NZ National Championships again for the 5th year running.

Of course we left a nice fine day in Gisborne to get to Auckland and it was raining.  Oh well, at least the mall was just across the carpark.
