the best thing…

… about blogging is the people you meet.

I have really gotten to know Krista over the past couple of years & she is a gem –  so imagine how  thrilled I was when her name came out the hat for a random swappy poo. In exchange for a pillow & a little extra I received a wonderful package of stitchy goodness in true Poppy Print style! Check it ALL out! A fabulous project pouch & super duper cute covered tape measure, some poppy printed  fabric + scrummy linens & one of Krista’s famous thread catchers in fabulous map fabric!

[& as if I wasn’t spoilt enough with all those goodies, that cute little machine in the first pic was recently hand delivered by some vip house guests…more on all that later!]

I LOVE it all Krista & they have all been put to use already!  Thank you so much for being an awesome swap partner xxx

& as if connecting with new friends via the interweb isn’t fantastic enough, this past weekend I had my first bloggy date! The lovely Jules, whom I was in a bee with last year was visiting friends in Brissie & drove  up the coast  for a cuppa & a catch up. Jules is one of those girls you adore instantly & I felt like we had known each other for yonks. Well I guess we have in a way! She had her sweet bub Violet with her and it was so lovely to see a quilt that Michelle had secretly organized for Jules & I had contributed some blocks to. The afternoon went way too quickly & all too soon it was time to go –  I felt like we could of chatted for hours!

I love the internet & the adventures & friends it brings.
