Please enter me in your drawing. I love the pattern Fan Hearts and Charms ... it would be PERFECT for our new home. We're retiring and recently purchased a home for our retirement years ... after many years of hard work we're finally achieving our dream ... can't wait to spend my free time quilting! Thanks and loved your column on Stash Management ... one of my daily blog stops ;-)
I love your Hearts and Braid table runner. Thanks for showing all of your projects. They were beautiful.
Patterns have been sent off to Sue and Linnie. Cecilia, as you are a "no reply blogger", I can't contact you, so please e-mail me. You have until midday (Aust EST) on Wednesday 18th to contact me.
Congratulations to the winners and thank you so much to all those who entered the giveaway and left me those beautiful comments here and over at Sew we quilt.
Now to Pattern 5 of "Consider the Lilies" - we're almost half way there!
Can you imagine how much delight I had in sewing this sweet little bird?
As usual, the pattern can be downloaded from my website on the wallhanging page. I hope you enjoy stitching my little bird.
I have no idea where my week went to last week. I had a look in the diary to see what I was supposed to do to see if I could remind myself what I might have actually done to fill in my days. I know I made a batch of sweet orange marmalade, wrote up another pattern, prepared Pattern 5 for you and answered lots of lovely comments. I suppose that took two or three days. Then yesterday I cleaned out our campervan ready for a planned holiday visiting national parks, state forests and friends. Can you see my smile?!!
Another day I spent quite a while setting up a Powerpoint presentation for my husband to use in our church today. Would you like to see a couple of my photos from the Australian bush that I used?
A Ladybird beetle on Wattle
Our Australian bush is magical, come August/September/October. The intricate detail in the flowers is mind boggling to me.
Have a great week ... and I hope to have some stitching to show you next time!
