A new found family member!!

I have probably said before, but my Nan (Mum's mum) went for a trip to the UK to spend Christmas with her family. She had come to Australia when she was about 20 years old and had only gone back afew times for holidays. Well, she returned a week ago and got quite sick with a flu....... Today she popped around to see me with a couple of gifts and a couple from my cousin!! When I opened the little purple packages, these were revealed, a lovely set of PRETTY fq's:

The other package was these BEAUTIFUL brown and teal fq's!! Oh how I LOVE these colours!! Yummy Yummy!!
The funny thing is, when I opened the little card she had given me her email AND her Blog addy!! OMG she is a blogger WooHoo!!


So, Andrea if you are reading this...... THANKYOU SO MUCH!! I just LOVE these fabrics......... They were a pleasant surprise!! I wonder what I will make!
