Bloggers meet and other goodies

What a fabulous day us Tassie Bloggers had on Saturday. We gathered at the small town of Ross at the bakery for a day of fun! I made everyone little parcels with a surprise inside.I also gift wrapped 19 lucky door prizes that were kindly donated from The Quilted Crow and Hugs 'n Kisses and were well received by all!Check out the Tassie Bloggers on my side bar for more posts about the day, without them the day wouldn't have happened and I'd like to thank all of them for coming and our friends too that joined us Meredith, Bronwyn, Sarah, Polly, Kerrie & Tali. Plus big thank-you to my dear friend Sarah for driving us there!!

I'll post some more picks later in the week (when my camera comes home) of the beautiful gifts I received at the gathering!

Now onto other things, here's some sneak peeks of my gifts for the SSCS 2008 that are winging there way across the globe, are they coming to your door?And when I popped home for lunch today a lovely parcel was in the mailbox from Embroideroo. Sandi knew I was drooling over the Macadmia Bliss Bar and offered to send me one so in the end we did a little swap of xmas ornaments and sweets. Sandi sent one of her own designs of a Roo, isn't it the cutest kangaroo you've ever seen!, and a lovely felt snowflake, some buttons and of course the bliss bar...no I haven't opened it yet but it's calling me saying "EAT ME!"Thank-you Sandi, I'll be putting my tree up soon and they'll be on it!

Almost forgot to mention but two of Ric Rac's creations joined us at the gathering, Marita's Henry and my Jodie, they enjoyed catching up too! Thanks for the pic Sarah!!!

From all the photo's on the different blogs it looks like it was a very successful day, and everyone had loads of fun. Love your little kangaroo, and the peek of your SSCS. I hope it's winging it's way to OK :))
