Gifts for me....from me

I often buy my boys little treats for no reason at all so this time I thought I would buy myself a few things just because...I had seen Anni Downs new book Some kind of wonderful around blog land and I wanted a copy for myself. Lillian ordered a few copies for the shop and of course one for me,its a beautiful book and I can't wait to start some of the projects, I also got Life of a bag which is a great book.

Last night while son number 2 was at basketball I had a quick wander around the shopping centre and I came across these bargains, buy one get one free. I thought they were beautiful so of course I bought them for myself.



I also got these for the same deal, its shower gel and body lotion, they smell divine. I just liked the holder they were in.





Then of course I walked into the newsagent and found this American magazine, it was the front cover that got me, such a fresh picture to brighten our cold winter days.







The quilts on these beds are so pretty, the whole magazine has lovely photos.



Today I got the binding ready to sew on 2 quilts, I hope to get these sewn on tomorrow, I also finished my secret stitching gift and made another big block for the Swoon quilt.

I'll be back tomorrow to share my progress. I hope you found some sewing time today.
