Hello! Yeah, it's Saturday!! Last week seems to have been such a long week... and I only worked 3 days!! It's the Public Holidays that do it... I get so used to having a few days off and just relaxing and stitching and when it comes to going back to work after a break, every bone and joint in my body rebels and says NO!! I am so knackered today... I feel like I have to go and have a Nana nap! But I won't, as doing that eats into my Saturday afternoon stitching! Nap, Stitch - stitching wins hands down!
Well as you have probably guessed from the title I must have been visited by the postie this week... and yes, I was - not once, but twice!
The first package to arrive came from Rita in Portugal.
|Gift from Rita|
The second package came all the way from Judith in Germany.
|Easter Exchange from Judith|

As yet I can't show you what I sent to Lentochka as part of the exchange as I haven't heard yet if it has arrived safely in Russia. Hopefully we will hear soon of it's arrival and all will be revealed.
So now that makes two packages that I have sent that I am still waiting to show off to you - a pixie parcel to Eleana and my Easter Exchange to Lentochka. Fingers crossed we will hear any day now that they have arrived and all will be revealed :o)
Before I go I have to tell you about an Exhibition that I went to a couple of weeks ago with one of the girls from work. It was at the WA Museum and was just the thing for a lunchtime walk. The exhibition was 200 years of wedding dresses! Now what girl doesn't want to go and see some wedding dresses?
The image that was used for the advertising is a drawing of the Vivienne Westwood designed wedding dress for Dita Von Teese's wedding to Marilyn Manson... and that dress was in the exhibition.
Unfortunately we weren't allowed to take photographs of these amazing wedding dresses, so I have had to search the internet for images and advertising to show you some of these beautiful dresses. While I was looking for the images I discovered a link to the ABC News story which does show a number of the dresses from the exhibition. It is amazing how the styles have changed over the last 200 years. This is also shown in the pictures that were on show of local weddings of Perth people over the years. Such a wonderful way to spend a lunch break.
Think that is just about all for this post. It is almost time to do my April TUSAL update so I will be back again in the next few days with a stitching update on my Mystery Garden and Puppy Love. Both are coming along quite nicely.
So until next time, happy stitching!
