Started today with great intentions ...purchased some great fabric and stabilising fabric from Hetties last weekend while in Adelaide. Thought I would start ironing all the transfers patterns from the Nice People Nice Things Quilt by Helen . ....I always enjoy having a DVD playing or TV on in the background while I am stitching or quilting. I plugged the iron in and went over to put a DVD in .........a noise suddenly appear that sounded like I had put the DVD in the DVD player incorrectly......quickly turned the DVD player off ....but what.....the noise is still there and a glow caught the corner of my eye ......... flames coming out the iron flowing up to the ceiling.
...quickly turn it off at the wall socket .........carry the iron outside....dumped the iron in the garbage bin ...then adventured back inside to change my pants (lol) ...........Called DH who at the time was at a local hardware store. DH who very rarely purchases any thing for the domestic side of life ........walked in with a new iron .......So the day continues as planned ......DVD in player, new iron and a few hours later .......

When I got home this evening .........Sitting on my kitchen (dining room ) table
was this brown box ......... After having a not so pleasant day with my head wrapped around paperwork and enquiries I had a bit of a headache as I drove home, but it sure disappeared once I open that brown box ......... Enclosed is a absolutely fabulous bag made from my favourite colours and the wonderful embroidery, it is just awesome and a nice roomy size. . So a huge Thank you to Tracey . I can't believe I have something so nice. Once again, Tracey, thank you so much. I can't wait to show it off....
A big Spring surprise in mail ............for leaving a comment on Angels Come to Play for a recent give away of Shelley's brand new "Swirly Cupcake" pattern. Big Thank you .......off to experiment
