A lovely town up the highway with lots of creative people
A very good use for an old phone box.
What a cute sign - I coudn't resist and went in for a look around and to eat.
This is the outisde of the garden wall of the flying teapot - there are all kinds of shiny implements imbedded in the concrete fence.
Some old buildings
Above a former tearooms with a 1890's date
Old house and 'News' building
Fire station - 190? was the date at the top.I enjoyed a nice walk around the town after checking out all the creative goodies at the quilt show. You can find lots of pics of quilts here - much better than the ones I took. Oh and you can check out her winning quilt while you are there. There were lots shopping opportunities at the Quilt Show and I so wanted to buy the Kaliedescope book from Melly, I resisted this once. I did get some fabric I'll show you next time. Wishing you all a creative week. Happy Crafting

I really want to start something new tonight - but I am having a hard time deciding between the following projects.
- First up a new pattern that I bought this week - well the shop was open and it was there and I just love the Red Brolly girls - can't go wrong when they are the feature. Ooh, and they are not just on the front there is another design on the back, such a cute little bag and a bonus Needlecase also featuring these ladies.Happy Creating

The M&M's fairy delivered the following package after much delay due to snow in her home town.
It all started a few weeks back when Kathy had pics of these on her blog and I mentioned we didn't get that flavour here, she generously suggested she could send me some - once the snow stopped visiting.
So what is so different about these - the ones in the purple pack are dark chocolate and the red pack has peanut butter M's.
Thank you so much Kathy they are much appreciated.
I'm trying to figure out how to make them last for the longest time?
Here are the pretties I picked up at GJ's sale on Saturday - in the back row 3 London Cats fabrics, same design in different colours and in the front, some $2 fat quarters, cause they were there and everything was 25% off. I also picked up batting and thread to complete another quilt.
The winner of my one year bloggy anniversary giveaway is Marina from Maisie and the boys, and as this is my 150th post I chose a second winner, and that is Cathy from Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much.
Can you believe Miss Nudie chose the colour for her outfit today and then the power went out? Lucky it is not cold here! She will be dressed shortly and then she will be able to make an appearance here.
Hope you all had a good Monday - I sure did.
