PIF Goodness......

Yesterday I received my PIF gift from Linda.......I love it! It is a pity my photo just doesn't do it justice.....! Because it is cold and dark at the moment....did I think to take a photo today???? the inside if fab with loads of pockets - I promise to take a better photo for my next post!!.....Thank you Linda.........it will get much use...I have been meaning to make one of these for so long and just haven't got around to it.

....did you know????? I love the colours as well! Brightens up the otherwise dull days we have here at the moment.

This of course brings me to my PIF gifts - which I will be organising in the next week or two.......so far I have only two players Nic and Levin so if anyone else would like to join in you know the drill.....just leave a comment saying you would like to join.......if no one wants to that is fine too.....I will draw a name and send a gift to someone from my sidebar.....just because......
Looks like bleak weather for the rest of the week and the weekend....which will be great because I intend to be doing a fair amount of stitching this weekend......good plan huh!!
I have started stitching Viv's sampler (from the Loxton weekend)......it is coming along well and is fun to stitch....I just fell asleep on the couch with the needle poised to take another stitch....Mark came in from footy training and found me like that....!! LOL ....I think he thinks I am really odd!!......time I was in bed I think! But couldn't settle before I had posted a pic of Linda's fab gift.....thanks again Linda.......!
I have almost finished cupcake goodies........and then it is the bag!! I am quite looking forward to having a go at making a bag as have only made a couple before....and of course I have signed up for Donna's Secret Santa Christmas Swap........nothing like swaps to keep you on track!!
Enjoy your Friday and here's to the weekend!!!
'til next time...................Lorraine

A lovely gift!

I loved your comment about Mark! I know my grown up children think I'm weird, so it's nice to know I'm not alone!

YES! I would like to do your PIF! I am getting all big and brave now! (Don't know why I thought it was scary before!) I will post the PIFness thing on my blog tonight. So, if anyone else is sad that they missed out here, come visit me!

Here I sit on Thursday night, thinking about how your weekend is nearly here and I have longer to wait! ROFLOL! I hope you got some sleep--can't have you falling asleep and poking yourself with a needle! LOL!

Hey Lorraine! Wow! You should be incredibly organised now with Linda's pressie helping you!! I'm finally back to stitching - have finished the stitching part of Lynette's latest Noah's Ark block now just have to put edges on - hope to post photos tomorrow. Right now, I think I'm going to treat myself to an early night - think I'm one of the few people who has NOT been looking forward to the Olympics because I lose some of my fave TV shows! Ah well, DVD's are great! Bear Hugs! KRIS (Tag Along Teddies)

Hi Loz,
I have to admit I am a PIF virgin. What on earth is it all about. Sounds like fun and I would love to play with you and your friends but I have no idea what you are all talking about.
Off to checkout what Chooky's SSCS is all about, have to admit that is virgin territory as well. Who would have thought is at my age.
See ya
Shelley
