New Mexico markers hit Victoria
Just in time to cheer me up! The Sharpies are part of this lovely package from JenBen via Gimme Your Stuff. Also in the package was a pack of Shrink Film which I have been coveting for a long time. And some fabrics, of course. Thank you very much Jen!

Aussie junkfood gets to New Mexico
The first morning I was in Tahiti I was looking for a snackie-type thing in the hotel gift shop and I came across a Cadbury Hazelnut Brunch Bar. I was a little skeptical but I thought, what the hell. I'm hungry and maybe a Brunch Bar has some sort of nutritional value. Damn that thing was tasty! The rest of the time I was in Tahiti I looked for the bars but I never found them again! Well, I did find ones with raisins (ewwwww!) but not the hazelnut ones. When I got home to the US, I still couldn't find the Cadbury Brunch Bars, either in the US or in Europe. They're REALLY hard to find! When I heard of Gimme Your Stuff, I thought, Aha! Here's a way to find those pesky, addicting bars! And lo and behold, Kwoozy in Australia made my dreams come true! She sent me 6 regular sized bars as well as 6 minis! And then she threw in all sorts of other candy too! I'm not sure about the prune candy, but the rest looks delicious! Also, she took the time to scour fabric stores near her to come up with the fabric the candy is on. It's hard to tell but it's blues and pinks with dragonflies which will be perfect for a baby quilt! Yay! :)
