In and Out at Lilly Pilly

What went out? A gift for Rosie
Thank-you for my kitty!


What came in? Mail of course!!

Lovely books from the Book Depository, don't you love that Teddy Bear!

....and a surpirse package from Brianna of Rolling In Fabric, that I had forgotten all about!
I won a giveaway on her blog! 4 FQ's and the cutest little kit to make a Matryoshka brooch.
Thank-you Brianna, now I need to find the perfect project for these lovely fabrics!

I love when the mail brings such lovely treats and not bills. They're great books you got from the book depository. I've been quite restrained from buying books from there of late... hhmmm, perhaps time to indulge again - lol.

A PayPal account + Book Depository = dangerous (but so lovely when the goodies arrive). Have fun with all your new bits and pieces, Jo.

Congratulations on winning, you lucky girl! I think I'm caught up with your blog now. How horrid about the animal exports to Indonesia; I had no idea. I mean, how hard can it be to slaughter an animal humanely? Not very! Please update us on the final result, if there is one.

Take care,
Susan in Texas
