A Few Things To Show...
I have been busy sewing... some are Christmas pressie's so I can't show you just yet... but with all this sewing my strip containers have become full once again so time to do a little more ''scrap busting strings'' and still those ice-cream containers never seem to go down much...
6 1/2 inch string squares...
 some spider webs to go with my swap blocks that I am wishing for at QBSA
 they aren't sewn together yet just playing with them... this one is going to be quite bright hahaha it seems I don't have a lot of those duller fabric's in my stash...
and looky what came in the mail...
my last parcel from Michelle...
 and so beautifully wrapped
 and looky how full my Santa Sack is looking
so tempting to squeeze and maybe oops tear a little big
hahahahahaha
no I haven't I am very well behaved (most of the time)... 
thank you Michelle for being a wonderful partner...
 had a very quick trip to Perth and a little stop at Spotlight...
and just had to have some ric rac especially that rainbow roll...
 and has anybody tried these????
I see them all the time in the magazines and have wondered if they work or really help???
can't wait to try them to see if they do make free motion quilting not look so messy in parts on the back of my quilting projects...
 and while there....
I just had to take a photo of this road with a power pole right in the middle of the new road... I am wondering "what'' they are going to do about it???? town planning at its best????
 and the reason we were in Perth????
to see our eldest daughter off on her month long trip to Africa with her boyfriend...
hopefully she doesn't fall over or she will be like a turtle on it's back...
it is with a Safari Tour so exciting for them...

  3. Hello Tarnyia,

    What a great post. Your daughter will have a great time in Africa. Town planners are from another world you know that.

    Happy sewing.
