Happy, happy mail!

Earlier in the week I received this in the mail....
a special book from Michelle Ridgway...her first book...has lovely patterns in it...you can see more here over at Michelle's blog.
Then I had a parcel arrive from book depository
lots of lovely feltie goodness in this book,
today I have been over to Port Arlington for a Bellarine Quilters sewing day......
I managed to sew several of these.....
but can't say too much as it is secret sewing....shhhhhh!!!
Also this weekend  I need to get going on another Aussie Hero quilt...this one is 1950's retro feel with classic cars and trucks...
hopefully this will fit the request....
and I nearly forgot ( sorry Shez!) When Shez came last weekend she gave me the lovely RAK parcel she had put together for me....
How good is that???? The girls encouraged me to cut into these batiks over the weekend, but I said no they had to be patted and enjoyed for a few weeks first!! Lol!!
Thank you Shez, it is a fantastic bunch of goodies and you are a very generous friend!! 
Now I have to go and fold up yesterdays washing...we look like a Chinese laundry as my Dad would say, things hanging everywhere, but what else do you do when it rains every day?
Ooooo...don't forget too that it is FNWF tomorrow...you can sign up over with Cheryll and join in with everyone stitching their Friday evening away.
Happy sewing.
