Oz Day and Fabric Chosen

My parcel from the lovely Janice arrived yesterday and what wonderful swap presents were inside. I was Janice's 'To Make For' partner in the Australia Day Swap organised by swap mumma JEWELLS - we had to send our partners a gift for each letter of the word AUSTRALIA.
All the little parcels beautifully wrapped and individually tagged!!
A - Apron; U - Unicorn Stickit notes, S - Stitchery pattern, T - Thread Catcher, R - Red & White Ribbon, A - Apple Applique, L - Lollies (yummo and now all gone), I - Ink - 2 pens, A - Aboriginal FQ.
Such a clever girl is Janice - THANK YOU so much Janice - love them all and enjoyed opening each parcel!!!
I have joined the 2015 Sal being organised by CHOOKY
Today, after a road trip to Narrandera where I purchased the background fabrics, I plunged into my stash and chose my applique and squares fabrics!!!
The colours in Anni's, while they look great, are just to pale for me, soooooo I decided I would go bright, bold and beautiful!!! lol!! And that is what I did. The background fabrics are the spots on the right, and the applique/squares are the brights on the left.
I have left them arranged like this on the bed and been back to look at them a couple of times and am happy with them each time - so the decision time is over - now to get started!!
