Barry in my bed

Cass and I have had two bets on the footy - fortunately for me, my team has won both times. 
Cass sends parcels wrapped beautifully in old pattern pieces and tied with striped bakers twine.

I ripped the parcel open so quickly that I forgot to take a pic, trust me it looked cute.
You can see it here.

What was inside was a selection of gorgeous fabric, one with cute panels that will look fabulous as appliques, very sweet Red Riding Hood linen (always a winner), the lovely pink patterned cotton fabric on the right and also some laminated Paula Prass for me to play with - lovely - thanks Cass.

But also resting in there was my good friend Big Bad Bustling Barry Hall. He is very kindly passing on a message to the man who lives here.

Just letting him know that the snoring, (which indicentally was at its peak the night before Cass's parcel arrived) will not be tolerated.

(Pic pinched from Cass as one of the girls is asleep in my room, and Barry doesn't want her disturbed!)

He goes perfectly with my other Barry treasures that Sal made for me.

I've said it before, but I feel very blessed to have made some wonderful friends through the blogging/online community.

Women who are not only talented and obviously kind, but witty and take the time to send a funny/cool/clever gift to someone who lives halfway across the country to fulfil a promise made on the basis of the performance of a football team.

Thanks Cass - I'll make sure he's very happy here!
