I received some lovely gifts in the mail all the way from Australia! Margaret of Cosmos and Chrysanthemums had a giveaway a little while ago and I was one of the winners. You should see her beautiful handiwork. I got this beautiful little messenger bag ...........

and this oh, so pretty apron. Wow! How did you know Margaret that I've been wanting a pretty apron? I just have never quite pushed it to the top of my to-do list. And now I don't have to.

This is part of the backing for a new quilt I'm making for my brother. For some odd reason he likes bats. And this is only a small part. The rest of it is a lot more mainstream. :) I'm at the good part now - machine quilting. It's a pretty good-sized quilt so it may take a while.

Hope your day has lots of good things, too!
Hugs and kisses,

Very nice, Elaine...I really like the self-portrait mirror shots...I have yet to master it myself (mine come out blurry and you can't tell what it is). The messenger bag Margaret made is lovely.

Your pictures are cute. I love the apron the most. It is darling. The bag is fabulous too. But those bats?

Happiness comes from a happy person, loved the shots .
