How Lucky am I

Today in the mail I received a parcel all the way from Fort North in the USA, it was a surprise parcel from Linda from Craft Apple Creations, I sent her a copy of 'Blackberry Jam & Cream" for Christmas and in return she sent me an original, handmade Seamstress Apron. She has just released this as her very first pattern, I am so thrilled to have received it, I am sure I will be able to put it to good use. Thanks Heaps Linda. Also enclosed was a copy of the pattern and a beautiful hand made card. I treasure anything handmade that I receive as a gift.



The apron has lots of pockets to hold pencil, rotary cutter, tape measure, scissors etc.
It will be very handy in the shop.








Wow another very hot day, I did manage to finish off piecing the quilt top I ve been working on just need to sew on the borders, so I will take a photo tomorrow and let everyone have a look, then it will be off to Betty to be quilted, before I display it in the shop as one of the new quilts for this years Workshops.
Until then lets pray for a change in the weather, rain would be good.
