Blogtoberfest Day 31 - Thanks for hanging in there with me

Today was an awesome mail day.  The parcel guy left these on my doorstep this morning.

colouring books
Lark had these on special last week.  I couldn't resist buying up.  Some will go to Moo for a holiday present.  Some will be stashed for future presents.

When I waved my friends off after the Thermomix demo, I saw the white envelope that any Ottobre Design subscriber looks forward to receiving.

Otto 062011

Then when I pulled out the envelope, I saw more mail underneath.  Within that bundle was this...

hot chocolate
It was a gift from Cherie because I sent her some velours for telling me the flavour of the Japanese Kit Kat bar.   Very unexpected and totally sweet!  I'm not sure that I will share with the kidlets.  Well, except for the fact they saw them and will expect to have at least one.  Thank you Cherie!

So thanks for going on this Blogtoberfest adventure with me.  For one lucky reader I'm going to buy you a metre of fabric from Crafty Mamas.
Why Crafty Mamas?  Well, it's where I buy most of my fabric, and Lisa's customer service is fabulous.   It's a good time to win a metre of fabric because Lisa just received her Stenzo shipment.   I'll pick a random winner from the comments on this post next Monday.  (for the record this isn't sponsored in any way.  I want to give away a metre of fabric, and Crafty Mamas is my favourite place to shop.)

Here's Mollie modeling her Amelie dress.

Ooh, nice mail, Sara. I tried to buy strategically before my holiday so that my mum in law wouldn't keel over at all my internet shopping...but I gulped when I saw the pile that was here. I murmured something about Christmas pressies and knitting swaps and left the room lol.

That dress is so cute! Gosh, Moo is quitew the young lady now.

I love those Rosie Flo books but stupidly forgot all about them when they were on sale

Peta said...

I admire all you girls who managed to make it through Blogtober I can barely scrape enough together to post once a month. My goodness Mollie is growing up!

Dani Castley said...

I could never commit myself to blogtober, so I admire your stamina. I tend to post in fits and starts ... with lots and lots, then nothing for ages.

Liz said...

What a fantastic mail day!! I love those books in the first photo - they look really cool :)
Mollie looks very grown up and serious for this photo ;) The Amelie dress looks wonderful.

Crafty Mama said...

I have always thought about getting Otto mags but not sure about them, if only I could see one in real life first.

Your give away is truly generous

Sara, you are right-CM's is the best place to shop for fabric!
