Super Spring Sunday

Good Morning All My Wonderful Blogging Buddies!  Isn't Spring absolutely divine - my 2 year old Crabapple tree is ready to burst into pretty pink flowers........


My herbs are sprouting....(although they have been hit by a couple of nasty nasty frosts)........


The new veggie garden beds pictured were a pressie from my husband and kids......you guys rock!

 My fungal's......well, have a peek for yourself........



I'm thinking Beef & Mushroom pies for tea tomorrow night:)

Or if these guys got their act together.......

I could have quiche and salad!!!!

Since my last post I have managed to have a birthday, and the Material Girls group did extremely well in making me beautiful items.  I decided on a spots & stripes theme and this is what I got......


A flossie from Lindy, a cute little pouch with yo-yo's from Chrisine (which my rotary cutter has moved into), a key fob from Vicki (sitting alongside my NZ keyring....yes, the Mighty All Blacks Rule!), a sunglasses pouch from Rosemary and a gorgeous little cushion from Christine.


Close up warranted of course.......
The girls even went over and beyond by wrapping above gifts in appropriately themed paper also.......they're legends!

My Christmas Swap partner sent me an ''unexpected''.......the postie delivered a yellow envelope with a lovely owl sticker on the back.......and when I opened it I found..............

2 sheets of lovely stickers with my name & address on the side (not very good photo's sorry Naomi, but I didn't really want my humble abodes position on the www)....Naomi tracked the bag picture down from my blog and printed all these gorgeous labels........now I'll just have to start sending stuff snail mail!!!  They were supposed to be part of my Santa Sack, but someone just couldn't wait......feel free to not wait anytime you want Chickadee!!!!!

Also, Naomi put us bloggers onto a giveaway (love you Nomesie) by the lovely Perri.....well, I decided to enter......and look what's coming to my house................


Thank you Perri.....its gorgeous - can't wait for it to arrive :)

And finally, a beautiful young lady by the name of Ruby came to live with me.............


The large piece of green fabric actually has little white dots all over it......phone camera did not pick that up.  These came from Sarah's online shop......Sarah has some pretty awesome stuff.

So thats it for me today......I have a few projects underway, but some are secret womens business, so no photo's of those................hope you are all thinking of Christmas and beginning to get organised.......I am thinking ...........and organisation...........well lots of Annies Dreaming going on :)

Your garden is coming along nicely. I have tried mushroom boxes a couple of times and just can't get it right. Yours look very tasty. Your birthday presents all look very pretty. Lucky you.
Your fabrics look great. Quite Chrismassy.

Well done Anne with winning the goodies and what a nice surprise from your christmas swap partner. I wonder what your secret business is....I plan to sew a lot this week, some secret, some not. Hugs
