Tuesday Stitching with a Difference

This week's get together was a different day for sure. It started off with a road trip.... East Coast Fabrics were having a sale so we headed over there first. I needed backing and wadding for a couple of quilts and that was exactly what was on sale. Wonderful! 
Two lots of 240cm wide backing at $12 a metre and pure citton wadding for $15 a metre. Happy happy! 
Then for something entirely different we went to the Daisy Hill Koala Centre. So lovely there. This little girl is a permanent resident and wont be released back into the wild unfortunately. She was doing what all koalas are good at...sleeping! 
Had a quick walk up to the top of the lookout....
Then we were off again. 
Another fabric shop and more bargains. Love a bargain, especially when it feeds my sewing habit! 
We then went back to Helen's and I sewed until much later than we usually stay!!! My wreath is so close to having all it's holly leaves. I can't wait to put the decorations on! 
When I finally arrived home I was thrilled to see some very happy mail in my mailbox. Lori Holt's "Farm Girl Vintage" book and Amy Sinibaldi's "Sweetly Stitched Handmades" book. Doing the happy dance!!!
What a great day. Thanks girls for another fabulous Tuesday!!!!
