Yes as Annie would sing.. "It's only a day away" now. This time tomorrow night Myra will have arrived on the train after 8 hours. She's looking forward to it so I hope it's a nice day and she can see everything on her travels. It's certainly not a nice night here and yet we had a beautiful hot day = I even wore a dress!!**?? The weather is very contrary at the moment.
I had a wonderful suprise yesterday from my dear friend Martina in Germany. Martina and I met through our blogs last year and have kept in touch ever since. My lovely parcel yesterday was
3 more beautiful patchwork magazines from Germany. they are full of ideas and patterns and 4 pieces of yummy fabric in blues and orange-brown.. They are beautiful cottons. Quite different to NZ cotton.
I love this quilt. What a gorgeous colour scheme for Christmas and scrappy too.
And wow, what a dazzler this is for any time of the year but I do think this would be a really bright and happy Christmas table centre.
And of course, wouldn't you know it. There are Horses in one of the magazines. Rocking Horses for the Christmas Tree. I love love love them and will have to make some. I'm sure I've told you how my dear Dad used to call me Horse very very affectionately of course and I miss that so much. So I am constantly noticing horses everywhere and acquiring a few here and there. these are very special.
Friends are Priceless. And I love to spend time with every one whether it's on the internet, on the phone or right here in my little house in New Zealand. I had better get to bed because I'm sure I'm not going to sleep much. I'll be remembering all the little things I need to do before Myra comes. The orchids are in a vase, the bedroom will be made up like a 5 star hotel but I still have to find enough room in my sewing room for a single bed haha. That will be my posie for a few nights. I'm thinking about having a king single bed in my room so I want to see how I'll manage.
Good night dear friends. Good luck with the giveaway. I'd love to share it with you.
