Yes, the saying is true…..it IS a long time between drinks once school starts up for the last term of the year…..everything must go on hold…blogging being one of them! But I did want to sneak a post in because I have been trying to have a life outside of school (believe it or not!!!).
I thought I’d take advantage of the parity of the $Aud with the Greenback so I went and did a
little bit of shopping bit of a spend up here.
I was surprised when the posty brought me this little treasure pretty quickly
….and inside were these beauties…
A Baker’s Dozen FQ Goodie Bag in yummy teals and browns and reds(yes there are 13 in there!),
a Glace dessert roll and some Glace turnovers along with some summery Sorbet ones,
An Old Primrose Inn Jelly Roll and…
a matching FQ bundle!!!
*Squee*……..how much fun am I going to have getting stuck into these???? But for the time being they just have to sit and be patient….they’re safe for now but in7 more weeks…..watch out…..I’ll be taking the cutter to you!!!!!! LOL
Ah well, back to hit the books……hope you’re area of the world is full of quilty fun this week !

Things have been a little quiet on the crafting front here the last week or so….just working away on my SSCS project….which must remain a secret….not even little sneakies!!!!
So I thought I’d take you for a walk through my garden……being spring, lots more is happening on the outside, rather than inside!!!!
Can you guess what these are?????
the seeds of this huge palm tree!!!!! Amazing aren’t they??
The mangoes are ripening….mmmmm……smoothies!!!
The gardenias smell incredible……..pity we didn’t have scratch n sniff screens!!!!
the cycad’s new growth is emerging…
the ixoras keep blooming….
…as do the roses….aren’t they just gorgeous???
Guess what this is???
My beautiful red torch ginger….isn’t she a beauty???
But I can’t leave you with no crafty pictures at all…..
This is amazing!!!…If you click on the picture and take a close up….one of our ladies at the guild made this magnificent Jacobean stitchery! I was in awe…the stitches are so teeny and perfect!!! I just couldn’t stop looking at it…and it’s going to look even more wonderful when it’s framed…I can only aspire to such perfect stitchery!
Aaah well, must just go off and practice then!!!!! LOL
Have a wonderful week…..I hope you enjoyed our trip round my garden!
