panda post present!

lucky lucky me
i got a pressie today in the post box from the lovely Sue

the package was panda themed - some lovely fabric, a haighs choccie panda (YUM!) and a lovely card.

i love it all - but even more because I LOVE PANDAS
in fact, the little human and i went to the first day that the pandas were on display at the adelaide zoo!  we had to cue for ages, but it was worth it

the little human was 9 months old at the time, and i bought him a special outfit for the occasion...




we did eventually get to see the pandas - here he is, with the panda in the background.  at the time they were still in quarantine so they couldn't come out into the open!



much cooler now, seeing them wander around - yes, we have been back another couple of times!


if you are ever in adelaide (well, in the next 10 years - that is how long we have them on loan for from China), they are well worth checking out.

so thanks again sue! will have to think long and hard about using that fabric!

pugs and kisses

You are most welcome, I love pandas too ! I have been to see them twice now, they are so cute.

Crafty Pugs did not mention that this was a big thank you to her for making not only the quilting block button for the blog, but my personal button and the button for the 6 inch group.

I am so glad that she understand this technology and is happy to help out. xxx

Wonderful gift! Pandas are so much fun to watch. A few years back I watched a panda cub grow up through the wonders of the internet and a pandacam - truly amazing and so much fun!
