An Extraordinary Journey

One of my very favorite bloggers of all time is Michelle May of The Raspberry Rabbits.  I love her work and already have her first book, 'Briarside Lane', which I treasure very much.

When I heard her second book, 'Fabled Fusions', was due out last year in October, I quickly pre-ordered it to make sure I got it come hell or high water!

She was due to post them out at the beginning of October which she duly did.  When I hadn't received my copy by the end of November, I contacted her to find out if she had some kind of a tracking number so that I could try and find out what stage of it's journey it was on..... Michele was horrified to find out I hadn't received it yet as by this time it had been received all over the world by her other customers.

We decided to give until after Christmas to see if it was just the 'Seasonal Post' clog and the take it from there.

To cut a long story short, it still hadn't arrived by Christmas and Michelle, being the amazing person she is, made sure another copy was winging its way to me on the 27 December. A whole month later on 27 January 2014 my book finally arrived!  Imagine my complete astonishment to discover that it was the first book, the one that had gone astray! Four months later it had finally arrived.

Sadly to this day, the second book has still not arrived!


If you look carefully you can see the postal date!




The book is amazing and the projects are sensational.  Do yourselves a favour and visit her blog, the raspberryrabbits.blogspot.com. you won't be disappointed

Congratulations Michelle!

From my window

It always a pleasure to see the Banded Mongoose feeding busily on my "front lawn"!

Mug Rug Swap

Last year I joined up for the Quilting Gallery"s 'Fall Inspired Mug Rug Swap'  We had to make 2 mug rugs inspired by fall, be it colours or images, that was up to us!

I was paired with Alisa in Taiwan.  What fun, we exchanged emails and all sorts of other info and away we went! In my rush of selling house, moving and my husband leaving, I neglected to take decent photos of the ones I sent her... the joys of getting old ;)!

Here are the ones she sent me which are lovely!!



The wonderful thing about getting two is that now I have one next to my sewing chair in the lounge....


And the other one next to my computer....


Not only did she send these two beauties, I got some little 'extras' as well. Her blog is worth a visit for sure.... astitchinbetween.blogspot.com.




  Thanks Alisa.

HAPPY NEW YEAR - 2014 IS HERE.....

May I wish everyone the very best for the new year, may even the best of 2013 be overshadowed by the anticipation and excitement of the brightest of the future in 2014.

This beautiful "flower fairy" awakening to her coming beauty seemed an apt photograph to share with you all.

Can you see her too? isn't she gorgeous. This is another photo I took at Diggers Cabin.
