And yet another win...

It has been so long since I posted or visited in blogland. Bloglines says I have over 300 posts left to read! So I thought I'd pop on and wish everyone a happy new year. Firstly I have some lovely things to show. I won a giveaway on Paula's blog which included the georgeous snowman, scarf, fabric and choccies below and the lovely bears claw mini quilt a bit further below. We were both surprised at the speed at which it arrived and I was able to enjoy the choccies immediately and display the snowman for Christmas too. And then....
this lovely collection arrived from Busy Thimbles.
Let's hope my good fortune continues in 2009!
And then this came too! It's an award from Julie from I wonder what would happen if....
What a lovely surprise. Go see Julie's blog for some wonderful inspiration. I was lucky enough to have the magazine she herself was published in, so could check it out for myself.
It's my turn to pass on the award to 8 inspirational bloggers. When I have finished choosing; out of the so many wonderful blogs to choose from, I'll let you know. In the mean time here's some things about me you might (or might not) like to know about.

Here are the rules to play the game:
1. When you are tagged you are asked to list eight random facts about yourself and post them on your blog for visitors to enjoy.
2. Tag eight of your blogging friends and leave them a comment that they have been tagged and to join in the fun if they have the opportunity. (If not, that's okay. They can still enjoy the random facts everyone shares:) Be sure to list a link to your eight friends in your posting.

Eight facts about me...

1. I love chocolate.
2. I love shopping, especially quilt related with quilty friends.
3. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, especially quilty friends.
4. I enjoy quiet times sewing at home, or with our quilt group.
5. I have three children, the oldest off to uni this year, the youngest starting high school.
6. I love cats.
7. I thoroughly enjoy meeting new people in blogland, more so than reality as I'm too shy.
8. Did I mention that I loved chocolate? oh, and good coffee too.

There, that was a bit of fun. I'll be back to share the fun around a bit, real soon.
I'm looking forward to a bit of number 2, mid week, so that will give me some more fun to share.
