Little apples (AKA I love my post man!)

I am bowled over by the response to Franky. Who knew that wine and fabric could produce such lovely thoughts from people :D Honestly though thanks everyone Franky is glowing with pride, as is Issabella!

Lets face it I couldn't have picked a better time to get sick. I've sat on my, now very rounded, butt and looked over some truly outstanding quilts at Amy's creative side for the WHOLE weekend. Him in doors topped my faboo weekend off by cooking the most outstanding dinner...Well ever! He made Delia Smiths roast tenderloin of pork with cider apple sauce, roast potatoes, roast apples and carrot and swede mash! I was in food heaven :D I will prod him for the recipe and share it out here, yes it was that good! :D If your in the UK, yes it's the one that was on the TV last week.

Ok so fabric and getting onto why I love my postman :) He brought me goodies! These came today -

Tasty Apple charm pack

I may have been drooling after Little Apples for a while when Laura of Quokka quilts ran a give-away and you guessed it I won! I'm embarrassingly excited as these are the first things I've ever won in blogland!
 I don't think my guy, or anyone else I know, can face me waving them in their face with a "How'd ya like 'em apples!?" shake any more!
 I'm lusting after a lap quilt or maybe cushions for my sofa or just petting them lovingly for a while.
So a big THANK YOU!!!! to Laura for sending them from across the planet (and for the chocolate but heck that was long gone before the camera got involved!) 

Hope you get a chance to get some sewing done this week and have a fun night tonight if your out and about! 


  1. Congratulations on your win - hope you feel better soon x

  2. Congratulations on your win! Get well soon (but enjoy the lovely cooking in the meantime).

  3. Ooohhh Little Apples. I really should get my hands on some of that. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

  4. Yay! Glad they made it and yes, cherry ripes are good! If they ever rethink our national coat of arms, cherry ripe should feature (well we eat the other things on there so why not?!). Have fun with the apples - can't wait to see what u make!

  5. I think I'd love my postie if he brought me that too :oD PS, happy 50th follower ;o)

  6. oh do share the recipe. my man cooks too and my mouth is watering. What are swede mash?

    those are the cutest fabrics - a few remind me of paper dolls. I bet you are too young to remember them!


Chat away - I enjoy reading comments and will respond here or by email :)
