parcels at the door

The postman has been kind to me this week
I have joined a Liberty Club at Patchwork on Central Park , thanks to the heads up from  Kate 
& these beauties arrived yesterday
x20  6" squares to play with 
I have another liberty quilt in the works , this time for my youngest daughter Phoebe

Sometime ago I purchased some vintage French linen & a piece of dotty linen  from Shannon at petitsdetails

It arrived this morning from Paris tied with cute stripey twine ... it will make a  little bag for someone at Christmas

And from my fabric benefactor in Sydney some gorgeous Dick & Jane  print 
I & many others learnt to read with Dick & Jane 

if that is not enough the latest inspiration from Kaffe Fassett came from the Book Depository
if you haven't already found this online bookshop it is well worth a look 
living here in Australia it costs a small fortune to buy books online
sometimes the shipping is more than the cost of the book , so I was more than excited to find this site where shipping is FREE

I'm working on my pillow today , I need to quilt the front
I have decided to add piping too after watching this great tutorial
 video by Erin Harris at houseonhillroad 
the zip insertion tutorial was also excellent & the pillow back now has a neat zip

stitch away

Ooh la la! Gorgeous mail indeed. I've spent hours pouring over my Kaffe and YES thumbs up to the Book Depository. It's amazing and with our strong dollar, we've gone mad ordering over here!

I love Kaffe's book - although my friend has kindly stolen it...hmm. Luckily I'm distracted with the next one - quilts en provence.

Are you sure those parcels accidently turned up at yours when really they should have come to mine???? ;)
