I just added a few things to the shop page.
Some is at the top of the shop page and some down the bottom, I'm not sure what was going on with the computer tonight.  Everything is headed to Philip Island Quilt Show tomorrow so let me know if you need a little something. 
I hoped to have everything up earlier but my little dog (who I am VERY attached too) has been very sick over the last few days on Tuesday night we thought we were going to lose her.  So I'm sorry it had put me a little behind.

   Maybe you would like to buy.....

    This                                                               Or                   This

    This                                                                                            Maybe this

Then go to the header bar on this blog and press the SHOP button...lot's of goodies there and more to come.  I might have confused a few people it isn't in the Etsy shop it's on the Shop page of this blog.

Too many goodies in the sewing room so if you pop into the SHOP (the button is up the top) you may get yourself a little bargain.  I will be adding more things over the next few days but if you new how long it had taken me to get these few things into the shop you would be on the floor rolling with laughter.
You might like one of these..
I will also have some news in the next few days on a Retreat I will be holding next year!!
Off to bed for me..I think I have computeritus..

I had a wonderful time away with my family but after a week of fun I have a little bit to catch up on.
                       I love my garden but why is it all of one thing is ready at the same time?
                                                                    Onion anyone?
                                      The strawberries are getting ready to leap out of the ground..
It will be busy, busy this week.  Philip Island Patchwork Group have their annual quilt show over cup weekend, they do a terrific job so if you are down that way drop in for a look.  I will post details and the address later in the week.  They have a wonderful trading table for their members to put things on so I have been busy sewing.
For reasons I won't bore you with I am also having a huge cull in my sewing room..
If you are interested I am going to pop it on the blog first I will start to take the photos tomorrow so should have some up by tomorrow night.  You never know you might get yourself a bargain!!

I am lucky enough to be part of this wonderful swap group.
My dear friend Cheryl from Cheryl's stitching is also in the group and today I found out she is a big fibber lol!!
Our swap partner each time is a secret but we did have a general discussion and she said how sad it was that she didn't have me this year and I told her it was sad I didn't have her.  Well it turns out we are two big fibbers because for this swap we had each other.  Now you know what a hopeless blogger I am I sent Cheryl's box and didn't take one photo but Cheryl is a good blogger and did a lovely post on well today I went to the post box and a parcel was waiting for me and when I saw the address I knew straight away who it was from.  Want a look?

Pretty wrapping with a lovely card.
Beautiful wool candle mat and Cheryl's work is just amazing.
How sweet is that..
Beautiful Christmas sticks that smell divine.  Now look at that Cheryl must have sent two half bags of licorice because I'm sure it's not possible for someone to eat all of that in a few hours. 
Thank you Cheryl you did brighten up this old girls day.

The day started Happy.
My daughter finished doing the work on my little Etsy Shop
Joy And Stitches
There is a little button on the side and if you need a little Christmas something the button will take you to the shop. 
I finished these little fellows ready to go to their new homes tomorrow..
Then happy went to ....yep you know what.
The garden supply company delivered some dirt and on his way out didn't shut the gate...grrrrr!!
It took me a little while to realise the dog was gone.  Six month old dog who is as fast as a rocket.
So in the car I get and go looking and looking and looking grrrrrr!!
Well I eventually find him and I could smell him before I saw him, he had managed to find something not very nice to roll in...yucko!!!!
Get in the bath dog.
Well at least the day started happy lol..

After a lovely FNWF Saturday was back to the grind stone.
The men of the family had gone fencing so I was home alone.  I have been busy for the last month getting the veggie garden ready for planting.  Saturday was going to be pumpkin patch day.  So off I went and came home with this..
Which I added to this..
Twenty five bags in all..
So I dug up this..
Added the manure and covered it in straw to leave for a few week and then needed a lay down because I was EXHAUSTED!!
Well I have named him Dangles and he has already found a new home (yee har).  Then I was lucky enough to get a couple more orders for him so this arvo after I had my lay down I cut out a couple more..
Once you cut his material it just goes every where..
Especially up your nose...but he is super cute so worth it.
I am about to add some new things to the shop so if you are looking for a little Christmas something to add to your collection you might like to have a little look...maybe you need a Dangles at your place.

The lovely Cheryll from Stitching Cubby Hole is hosting FNWF tonight so pop on over to see what every one is doing.
Today I was home alone so I decided to have a sewing day (I know I should be out weeding) so I made and early start on my Friday Night Sewing..
Well I actually finished him because he was so much fun....

I like him that much I'm sitting here stuffing another one.
Hope you are having a great Friday Night.

With the sun shining and birds singing, a beautiful Spring day.
So I gardened until my knees were crying "We can't kneel down once more"..
So what's a girl to do when her house was tidy and her chores and laundry up to date..
Make a friend...
Or two..
A very happy afternoon.
