The hump in the week (Wednesday) has been and gone and now we are on the down hill slide to the weekend which is wonderful news. Even better news is all of this loveliness has arrived in time for me to play with over the weekend.
Most of you would know by now that I am a huge "roses" fan and when I heard that Cabbages & Roses were bringing out a fabric range with "Moda" I was one very happy gal and have a quilt planned for "Me".
If you are one of my newsletter subscribers you will receive a newsletter tomorrow which will have a special Cabbages & Roses Offer in it along with some other wonderful offers, recipes and more. If you aren't a subscriber and would like to be, simply enter your name and e-mail address in the boxes on the top right hand side of this blog - It's Free.
It must have been the week for spoiling myself as look what else arrived for me this week. My friend Cherie blogged about her new 2012 diary which she purchased from Rebound Books.
They make Diaries and lots of other things from Vintage Books. The diaries are Little Golden Books and each page from the book is incorporated into the diary.
They are printed in Melbourne by a carbon neutral printer and using vegetable based inks on Australian 100% recycled paper. What more could you want?
The hardest part is trying to choose which one to buy - I finally settled on this one.
It is going to bring me a lot of Joy in 2012 and it will be something that I will put away as a keepsake for my children along with my blogging journals for the future generations of my family to read. It has become very important to me to make a permanent record of my life. I want the future generations of my familyto get to know who I really was and am saddened that I have nothing like that from my ancestors.
This weekend we have some serious home decorating to attend to. It is AFL Grand Final day on Saturday and my beloved football team the Geelong Cats are a finalist and I am super excited. My middle daughter Kaitlin is also an avid fan and together we will decorate our home on Saturday morning before we sit down to watch the big game. I don't talk about football a lot but I am a HUGE fan and watch it every weekend with my stitching on my lap. Go The Cats !!!!!!
And on Sunday I will be playing in the veggie patch and planting these baby seedlings - So my weekend is sort of mapped out - Footy, Sewing and Gardening = Bliss.
Before I go I had best announce the winner of my Go Baby ! from Accuquilt Go Cutter.
This morning I printed out all of the comments, numbered them and then inserted the start and finish numbers into Random.Org. It Came up with No 8 - Which is "Melody". Congratulations Melody - You are going to have hours of fun with your new baby. Please POP over to ACCUQUILT & Choose 3 dies and E-Mail me your details and your 3 choices and it will be delivered to your door in no time at all.
