    Hello everyone. I`m not sure exactly where to post this but here goes anyways. I haven`t had a chance to post my gift from my secret santa since I was away for two weeks before xmas then busy as all during the holidays but, i finally got a chance to take a few pics so i can show you. Mine came from Australia from Georgina (Ge-oz) and I absolutely loved it. I received a magazine, a handmade soap from her region, a material poster from Australia, and 5 beautiful aboriginal prints. I want to make something special with it, not sure what yet , but I will be looking online to find more. Oh I also got a boomerang but, curiosity got the better of my husband and he lost it in the snow while trying to see if it would come back! Men!! LOL again thank you so much Ge-oz

    sure wish I Had some for my stash :D
    I think a Wall hanging or a tote bag would be great with this fabric since it is so unique :thumbup: :mrgreen:

    Beautiful fabric. Your husband made me laugh out loud. I can just see him throwing the boomarang and having to tell you that it didn't come back. Hopefully it will show up later.

    How exotic! When it turns up after the snow melts, be sure to whack him with it! I hope it doesn't get ruined.

    Love that fabric...can't wait to see what you do with it!

    I'm soooo sad that when I was in Australia 8 yrs ago I wasn't into quilting yet and so I didn't go fabric shopping. I love those prints!

    You are truly blessed.

    HaPpY New Year

    Great gift. Did you know that Down Under Quilts has an online version that is free? You get it via e-mail, then go to the link. It's a wonderful magazine. Lucky you to get one in print!!!
