Simply, I got the fat quarters at Jo-Ann's.  I looked through the whole wall and only found those three.  The lining I used for the crocheted bag and the kanzashi pin I bought at a local quilting shop that has an amazing selection of Japanese/Asian inspired fabrics.  I am not much of a sewer, but I like fabric.   Smiley

Those are such cool fabrics to find at JoAnn's.  I should look closer at the fabric next time I'm there.  Thank you so much TwistedRedhead.

Kay - I can't tell you all how awesome Simply is. I mean, honestly, truthfully and sincerely - my parcel never rocked up (yet another reason to hate Australia Post), but she went ahead and made a second parcel, and I am completely and utterly blown away by the awesomeness that it contained!! (It also contained twizzlers and Hello Kitty bubblegum, but I've already eaten them). I so don't deserve all this splendour and generosity!!!

Y'all ready for this?


A geisha brooch - it's so well done - and she's so cute!


A pincushion (finally!!! I really really needed one!) and some pretty decorative pins as well. It's a lovely big pincushion, which is great, coz I have a lovely great big pile of sewing pins.


Beautiful handmade cards. There were bookmarks as well, but I forgot to include them in the photograph.


A scarf! WONDERFUL! Winter is just about to arrive here in Melbourne. It's a lovely colour - and was worn immediately after it arrived, coz I was headed out for the night, and it matched my outfit beautiful like! And there's a beautifully decorated box as well - and on the inside....


Jewellery!!! OMFG! A bracelet, a necklace, and a pair of earrings to match each. These are seriously, seriously beautiful, and incredibly well made.

Simply, you are not just awesome, you are completely above and beyond awesome. Thank you so so so so much, I am utterly... overjoyed.
