I have been very slack in not showing these goodies sooner. A couple of weeks ago a very intriguing parcel arrived from Sweden and my blogging friend, Stina. Inside were all these lovely Tilda items ... Stina knows I adore Tilda and that this brand is not available in Australia so I was 'over the moon' to receive them. I love the Vintage Angel and will enjoy doing the delightful stitcheries. Thank you so much, Stina. (Click on the picture for a closer look at all this gorgeousness.)
Oliver and I were recently nominated for the Brillante Weblog Award by the 'quirky quilter' and her cat Lestat and also by Leanne of Lizzie's Page. Quirky is a blogger from Western Australia, a primary school teacher and a new blogger to me. These are the kind words she wrote:
'Christine’s blog makes me smile. I enjoy reading what she writes and looking at all the eye candy she posts…whether it is something she has made, a WIP, somewhere she has been and especially Oliver. Nice to know that I don’t have the only crazy quilting cat in Australia! This blog has Lestat’s vote too…besides being a quilting cat, he is a bit of a blogger, too!'
Thanks Quirky and Leanne. I am supposed to nominate 7 more blogs but just 7 is impossible for me. If your blog is listed on my sidebar consider yourself nominated. I love visiting you all ... blogland is so inspiring.
Last night I signed up for Chookyblue's 2008 Secret Santa Christmas Swap. I enjoyed following this swap last year when I was just a 'lurker' ... this year I will be part of the action! I imagine it will fill up quickly so get on over to Donna's blog if you want to be involved.
Enjoy what's left of the weekend.
