“I’m Going To Tasmania!”

……that was the text I got from our girl this past week!!  What?…was my text back.    Turns out her work has given her the opportunity to go to Tasmania for a couple weeks of training.  We are so excited and happy for this wonderful opportunity that she has been given.  As a mom, in your mind you can imagine things that will come up with your kids, this is one I never thought of!  Tonight we both successfully installed Skype so we can be in touch while she is there!!  Life…be open to the possibilities!

Here’s my very little bit of quilting..yoyo’s to be added around here and there, and some simple cross hatching will happen.
My friend Loretta that makes the beautiful yard art, gifted me with this pretty006 candle holder….for a how to have a look here!
Then my friend Carol gave me this sweet bag002 .
I love those cute little zipper pulls, and she knows how much I love 30’s.  It’s the perfect fit for001 all my binding
equipment!!
This Friday is the next FNSIFNSIButtonBobbi and Heidi

Cute stuff. Tasmania! I just read a really good book about someone that lives there. Can't remember the name of it. But it made me want to go there. So fantastic. I am sure she will love it.
