Patterns, finishes, ornie swap, fabrics & lunch out

I'd seen this lovely pattern of Rosalie's made up & decided it i needed it.
Ladies in Tasmania went to a recent sewing day & made this lovely pattern of Leanne's House. Of course as soon as i saw it i had to have it too. :)
I took part in an ornie swap in a group i'm in on Yahoo & this is the gorgeous ornament i was sent by my partner.  Isn't it just the cutest mouse in a stocking. 



My friend Joy emailed me the other day to see if i was free for lunch today. You bet i was  :) So before lunch we went out to Rose Patchwork Cottage for fabric therapy. Here's my selection
Some more fabrics for the Civil War Quilts & lovely spotty fabrics for who knows at the moment & a lovely green/cream piece covered in little stars. Also bought is some lovely pink sandcastle fabric
Not sure what i'll make with it yet. Joy & i had a lovely lunch at the local hotels fabulous eating establishment. Thanks for the great company Joy. Oh & i guess you want to know about my finishes? well they are a secret for the sscs swap so i can't tell you a thing about them just yet until the are sent off to ???? in ?????
Hugs, Jeanette
