Firstly to my wonderful blogging friends I have to say that I was overwhelmed by the response and comments for my Dad. He had a wonderful day with many old and current friends coming from near and far to congratulate him and catch up. He read my blog post late in the afternoon when just a few friends were finishing up afternoon tea with them - apparently they all had a good cry..and for days afterwards as they read all of your comments - thankyou so much for sharing their joy. I didn't mean to make anyone cry but it seems we all know we should say these things more than we do..
Secondly, thankyou to Mandy of the UK a quiet blogger for giving me a Kreative BLogger award
and to Julie for this lovely friendship blog award
It means so much to me that they would think of me for this but please excuse me if I don't pass it on this time. There are so many wonderful blogs I spend my hours on when I should be working that I couldn't possibly choose - I couldn't do without any of you each in your own way - you all deserve awards just for being part of blogland.
Now Thirdly I have a favour to ask all of the Summer Mystery Quilters - its only a little favour... Little Miss T (4) was so excited to see an envelope with her name on it (now that she can read it) from the postman the other day she was jumping for joy and showed everyone carrying it around with her all day wherever we went. So my favour in return for the mystery project is to ask everyone who is doing it if you would be able to post a little note to Miss Matilda Stubbings at PO Box 390 Lenah Valley TAS 7008. It will be great to see where they come from and she will be so excited..and who knows there may be a little randomly drawn prize in return...
Here are a few mystery quilts so far - they are looking really good
I am off camping with the girls for a couple of days before the holiday ends and rowing regatta season gets into full swing. so have a great one
