ABOVE:  I was a busy girl last night... I whipped up these two blocks for my Placemat set.   The bottom one was a right arse to get right.. as you can see I chopped the tits of the ends of some of those triangles... AGAIN.... grrrrrr.  
The top one was more difficult than I thought it would be too... but at least with that one I didn't chop any points off.

In case you haven't read last night's update, the winner (s) of my Giveaway were 1st:  Sparklingmerlot who gets her choice of the two Casserole Carriers and some cards, and the runner up (so to speak) is Virginia, who will get the other Casserole Carrier. 

ABOVE: I got a parcel.. isn't it pretty!   From Coffee Slut in the USA... She sent it for my birthday ... which is next Thursday.  I ain't opening it until then... oooo exciting! Thanks ya Tart.  XOXOXOX

*sigh* ... we have to do bloody grocery shopping today... oh JOY.  That's about it for now...

Off to St Lukes mall today... for a change.  And they have a neat crystal shop there.. and I want to find a few crystals to make necklaces .... maybe! 

ABOVE:  Retail therapy:  A gorgeous decanter ... which I think will end up with jelly beans in it!  A lovely ringbinder for my block patterns, two for the price of one DVD's and a cute wee turtle.. not gunna mention who likes turtles!  lol

ABOVE: St Lukes mall... shop called Sun Crystals... I only got a few as they are real Swarovski Crystals well they better be... I will go into Spotlight next week and get more bits and pieces and give making a necklace a go!

We had lunch at St Lukes and are now home.... it's a really brilliant day today...very warm!

End of Day:  and I feel a bit naughty!  I haven't updated today much at all... got busy sewing/napping/blobbing out in front of the TV.  An now watching one of my all-time favourite movies on a DVD... "Fried Green Tomatoes"... it's a real chick flick!   Seen it..OOOOh... about 10 times!  lol

    At least you got a chick flick.... I have had to endure ANOTHER "Cars" Saturday night (Lightening McQueen??) - actually a really cool movie but I do tend to know the script nowadays... same as Shrek and Toy Story....

    Ahh well... in bed now and I have peace in the house - apart from husband who was at a funeral and then the "wake" from 1pm and drank beer since then and is now SNORING his head off... I am sleeping on the couch I've decided...

    Catch ya later...
