Some Goodies to share!

My Secret Santa swap arrived this week all the way from Norway. It is such a temptation not to open it!

In the Yahoo group I am in we have an Advent swap where we send our partner 24 small pressies and 1 main present and they get to open one each day leading up to christmas. It is a lot of fun and this year I have swapped with Jenny from New Zealand. Here is a pic of the first 6 presents. I love them all - thanks Jenny!

While we were away I came across these gorgeous egg cups. I have eggs a lot for breakfast and often have 2 boiled eggs but only have 1 egg cup. I couldn't resist these - aren't they cute!! They are by Maxwell & Williams and the best thing was they were only $1.95 each!

I also bought this beautiful recycled glass candle dish that was made in Spain. You can't see the colours that great here but it is a beautiful green.

Before I went away i bought these fabrics from ebay and they were waiting for me when I came back. I love this range of fabric, I already have a Jelly roll in one colourway. There are 2 colourways, one is darker and one is lighter. From this designer, Camille Roskelly and her mother, I also bought direct 2 of her latest patterns. If you get a chance pop over to Camille's blog, she is just gorgeous and her 2 little boys are adorable!
Now I just have to upload the photos of the wedding we went to a couple of weeks ago, and then I am all caught up!! Well caught up with blogging at least LOL

I am going to do some more quilting on my friend's quilt today, but it is too hot already, will have to wait until I turn the air conditioner on.

Bye for now!!
