They say it comes in threes!

Well, I am a lucky chook and I have the goodies to prove it.

Look what came in the mail this week......



and inside it was the most gorgeous.....


pincushion I won on Cori Blunt's blog ....

thank you, thank you, thank you Cori.....I love it - your stitching is just p-e-r-f-e-c-t and it's so yummy I could almost eat it up!!!!!

Another knock at the door revealed this delicious prize.......




.....a beautiful bundle of Rosalie's yummy new fabric range that I won on Bush Baby Jag's 'Giveaway for a Cause' to help promote Breast Cancer Awareness during October.  Thanks so much Julie, this was the icing on the cake....finding a cure for the dreaded "C" is my ultimate aim and I'm going to use the fabric to make a commemorative quilt for my lovely young mum who I lost 20 years ago to that disgusting "C" word!!!

Did you notice the cutie on the postcard????  I've got her posted on my wall next to my computer to remind me, when I'm feeling blah, just how quilty warm and snuggly bloglanders are!!!  Thank you Julie.....I absolutely Luuuuuuuurv them!!!

And thirdly,  I entered Judith's comp in the wee late hours on Monday (or was it Tuesday???) and to my surprise.........*bling, bling, bling*......bells and whistles, sirens and hooters......third time lucky!!!!  (this isn't like me....I couldn't win an argument normally!!!!)

So I'll be on the lookout for two little charms similar to these....


Thanks so much Judith.....I have a bit of an idea of what I might do with them......but that will have to be a surprise!!!

Speaking of Judith....have you visited her blog today???...go and check out the 12 days of Christmas with 12 talented USA designers.  Judith's blogged about it in depth, but basically for 12 days (9-20 November), 12 talented designers are offering free Christmas designs for all of us (a little like the Among the Gum Tree gals).  I've tagged my sidebar with the blog hop logo to get you to one of the designers...the rest is up to you!!  Don't miss it, it starts next week!




And because I love you all so much.....I couldn't leave without giving you a gift too.  You know what I'm like with roses.....well................ these are to share with you.....




I can't take the credit for growing them (wish i could coz they are magnificent!!)  They are the most gorgeous hot pink, velvet red and all variations in between, and the scent............ mmmmmmmm   mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....I bet you can smell them from there!  They come courtesy of my darling hubby....he doesn't mind if I share!!

huge sugary hugs
