I'm home, and my bags are bursting!

I'm home! Have you missed me? Don't feel the need to answer that :-) I'm sure you all thought my blog had been abandoned!

I have been busy shopping, travelling, and spending time with my wonderful friends in the USA. Now that I'm back home I need a few days to return my body clock to normal, unpack my many bags, and float back to earth. I promise I'll share many pictures of my adventures.

In the meantime, I just thought I'd share a quick picture of some of my fabric haul that I've unpacked and folded ready to put away. My goodness I purchased a lot. I also have three parcels being shipped home to me.

I found some conversationals so I can finish my Turning 40 quilt. (Will have to be renamed 'Turned 40'). Lots of nice yellow and cheddar fabrics for the Nearly Insane quilt, and many other 'just because' fabrics. Lots of fun!

I also have lots of books and magazines to find homes for. And many items of clothing, and of course four pairs of shoes. Well, I better get back to my unpacking and sorting. I promise to check back in soon! xox

Only four pairs of shoes? You were being restrained, weren't you? But the fabric, mmmmmm. Can we say "Yum!"? You'll have so much fun when those other parcels get here.
Glad you had a lovely time, but it's really nice to have you back.
