A pile of Potholders

Hi everyone, thank you all for your lovely wishes yesterday.  I did have the most amazing day.
The sun was shining....first time in weeks. I had the wonderful surprise Blog Hop from the terrific Design Team ladies of Unstampabelles. So many wonderful wishes on facebook. Beautiful handmade cards from Kaye, friend Helene and the funny bought one from my little brother.  I suspect that there are a couple more in the mail but with all the flooding they are sitting in a truck somewhere waiting to get through.  Chatted to my sister, a friend I haven't spoken to for such a long time and another friend in New Zealand. My son cooked a yummy Rich Chocolate cake for me and gave me two blocks of chocolate. In between phone calls I had the relaxing task of making and completing my swap cards for the March Card Craftmad Card Swap. So they will be in the mailbox tomorrow. Then I made a start on my blocks and Ugly Fabric swap. Afternoon tea with my Mum and Dad.  Then another serving of cake when my SIL and little nephew who visited and my hubby when he arrived home.  Tea was cooked by hubby....salt and pepper calamari from scratch.  Tonight out to tea with my three friends from school days. 

I wanted to share with you the other potholders I made last week.  I really had fun with the pattern which you can find here.  So one more for us, one for the lady that gave me the floral material and two spares for gifts.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone.

Oops almost forgot.

I received the wonderful Liebster Blog Award from Lauren over at Fairy Scribbles.  Thanks for thinking of me I really do appreciate the special thought.
Lauren does beautiful scrap pages, cards, sewing and today is sharing a wonderful organiser be sure to visit her blog.  And also live here in FNQ (Far North Queensland).  :-)

  12. Like trading cards, pogs are little round chipboard collectibles with pictures on them, mostly comic characters, that kids traded here in the US. It was a big fad for awhile. Now you can find them at charity shops for next to nothing. It's not hard to rip off the picture and add a rubber stamp sticker of your own! I can send you some if you like.

  13. Hope your birthday was a nice one! Have you visited one of my other blogs -- Rush Family News? It has my grandmother's Chocolate Cake recipe on it!


Thanks for much for visiting my little part of the world. I really appreciate the time you have taken to leave me a comment. I love hearing from you and if you are new I really like the fact I can now visit your blog too.
