There are some lovely people in the world.

A friend from down the street brings me some flowers from her garden every year. 
She says I get the first bunch of the lot.
Lorraine also just received a Citizen of the Year award. She does so much for everyone in the town.
 I think this is who will be getting the quilt I am working on at the moment.
Aren't these Gladioli gorgeous...
My beautiful flowers from Lorraine sitting on the quilt I got from Denice for my SSCS 15.
And of course with a photo of my mum. It would have been her birthday today.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUM


Then I had some lovely happy mail too.
I have been making and sending off Aussie Hero quilts for about 18 months now. One happy recipient, Michelle, was so thrilled she posted me a lovely gift.
A beautiful Afgan wrap
A gorgeous Afgan Wrap. I feel so lucky.

 and an ornate little vase.....
An Afgan vase to say THANKYOU

This was the quilt I sent her.
