Mail, Mushrooms and Flowers...........

I've been AWOL for a few days so this is the first chance to show you what I won. Yes I was one lucky lady and a winner in the Gum Trees giveaways. How lucky can you be hey??
This is what I won from the lovely Dawn from 'Dawn Hay Designs'. Gorgeous fabric, ric rac, varigated thread, 'dolly' pegs, needles and the fabulous 'Market Bag' pattern from Janelle Wind Collection, and would you look at the card, how appropriate! Adorable gum blossoms. Thank you Dawn, I love it.
Remember my mushroom grow kit I got a few weeks ago, well baby look at them now!! Last night we had bacon, egg, tomatoes and yummy home grown Portabello mushrooms for dinner. Very nice it was too and the mushrooms were delicious. Looks like we'll be having lots of meals with mushrooms for a few weeks!
I'm still working on Caitlin's birthday quilt, nearly finished the top and I'm hoping to sandwich it and start quilting by the end of this week.


I've done some more work on my CWBQ over the weekend but haven't got any photo's to show yet. I should have the next block finished this week too and hopefully I might get another post in later. It's STILL wet and cold here, it's very, very green though so shouldn't complain, full tanks make for happy gardeners. The weeds are impossible to keep up with at the moment and I can see a week or two of weeding as soon as it stops raining and warms up a wee bit, I'll be glad when we don't have to have fires every day.

I love growing mushrooms in a box, used to do it when the kids were small. If they grow it, they eat it. Congratulations on such a terrific win! I love how the quilt is growing, this block is adorable.
