... has arrived from Karol Ann of Sew much fabric, so little time, sew true.It so lovely to receive items in the post - and even nicer when you know they've been hand made. A lovely needle case, a card and a beaded key ring.
Thank you so much Karol Ann.
For those of you who haven't joined in yet I still have 2 spaces for people who'd like to receive packages from me in the next year. So far I've only got one response from Sally at Feather on a wire, so if there are 2 more of you out there please do drop me a line. The only thing you have to agree to is that you'll mention this on your blog and that you'll PIF 3 things. Come on.... (please)
Have any of you seen the Toplots part of E-bay? The idea is that you can bid for unique items - such as a day quilting with Janice Gunner. Have a look - there are some great lots.
I aslo picked up a copy of Selvedge - it's sooooo nice.
And I finished my Buzz Saw quilt top. I promise I'll share it with you very soon when I've got it sandwiched. It's not perfect - but I do like what it looks like.
Now I know it's already October, and I have started making little gifts for pressies - but honestly I went to out local large garden centre and it's packed with Christmas decorations and everytuing else Christmas. I'm not a grumpy old women (well not all the time) but I think it's just a bit too early. What do you think?
Hope you're all OK - have a great evening.

Ooooh, I'm already PIF'ing or I'd sign up! This is a hard time of year to get people to sign up -- with Christmas coming. And speaking of Christmas, I'm glad to know that we're not the only wacked-out country that puts Christmas stuff in the stores so early. It's riduculous!

What is PIF I am new to blogging and very confused.
On another note we live in Brittany and I am pleased to say that christmas does not arrive here until the begining of December.

I went to Asda last night and came across a whole aisle of advent calendars - DS said 'Won't the chocolate be off by December Mum?' Ridiculous - I studiously ignore everything like that as I go round on principle
