Just a little housekeeping .

That's right just a little housekeeping but I sure won't be getting my new dustpan dirty ! I need to put a label on it saying For Decorative Purpose Only . My kids are horrified I just want to hang it on a wall to look at , they are very good at eyerolling and mumbling strange mother by now !
Lisa from Cute as Buttons and Mel from Tinys both gave me this lovely award , thankyou both very much .Lisa and Mel both have truly lovely blogs and it is always great fun to visit them . Now its my turn to pass it on . I'm really hopeless at this because I think there are so many deserving blogs .So if I follow you or visit you please take this award with my best wishes .

I was the lucky winner of Janes from giveaway recently and what a great giveaway it was. In my parcel was a handmade card , fabric basket , fabric , covered tapemeasure and matching thread catcher . I love everything thankyou very much Jane .

Speaking of giveaways mine is coming up very , very shortly. Who would of thought I would ever have posted 100 times ! Stay tuned !

I'm leaving you !

Well for a little while anyway .

I understand that I am under no obligation to blog but I thought since I am not feeling terribly well and knowing I will be running around this week like a chook with its' head cut off I'd let you both know that rather than blog about nothing I'd do nothing about blogging , like that one ?

I'm still thinking of my 100th post giveaway coming up and followers of my blog automatically receive an entry as thanks for putting up with me for the other 99 posts !

See you soon !

You were wondering .......

You were wondering what I was going to do with all those lovely spots in the previous post .

Do you think I'm the sort of person that buys fabric just because I have to have it ?

Do you also think I'm just not brave enough to cut into it ?

Well you are absolutely right but I know I'm not alone with this .

I have found the perfect motivation for disrupting my polka pile - a swap!

Not just any swap A Polka Dot Swap !

Stacey over at Polka Dot Daze is having a swap for all the dotty girls and sign ups close in just a few days . If you need a good reason for cutting into your spots stash join in , it's going to be great fun .

Spots from Spotty

Living in a small country town I don't have the luxury of a fabric store , cruel I know , so I need to buy most of my fabric through mail order . I placed an order with Spotlight on Wednesday morning, received a very polite phone call from them in the afternoon letting me know what the price would be and received my spotty parcel on Friday morning .

After taking out the stuff I ordered that was unavailable all I was left with were spots !

It is spotty , dotty heaven here , I love them !

Farmhouse Envy

As some of you may know I'm doing a Visual Arts course through the local Tafe and the other day we decided to go on an excursion . We met at one of the ladies homes where a lovely morning tea was ready for us complete with all the fine china and I didn't want to leave , isn't it beautiful ? We took ourselves to another part of her property to sketch this gorgeous view .

It was a chilly day but we walked and laughed so much it didn't really matter .

Of course this is all I wanted to do when I got home but the cat wasn't moving from in front of the fire for anyone!
