what's in my letterbox?

don't you love arrivals in the post!

i went looking for some lovely fabric that i saw on Leanne's House Blog  - and found it through Earthgirl Fabrics.  it is various gorgeous little people in national costume!  can't wait for it to talk to me to tell me what to make it into :)

and of course, while i was there i clicked around the website to see what else was on sale - and there was this great ribbon!  this is a close up of what is repeated....

i just love it for boys toys and bags.  i am thinking of dreaming what the rest of the 'hero' might look like and then making him for the Toy Society drops - an inspirational message along with a free toy :)

and add to all that, when i got to the checkout of the website - i worked out that there is free postage within australia!!!! so i went back and bought another metre of the ribbon with the money i figured i saved on postage - very happy all round :)

pugs and kisses
