And the winners are ......

The winners in my giveaway have been chosen by the random generator and they are:

1st Prize - Sharon

Congratulations ... and thank you to everyone who entered the competition.


A couple more lovely ladies have sent photos of their Gifts of Grace quilts.

This is Lyn's gorgeous version - aren't the colours beautiful?

And look what Helen has done with her beautifully embroidered blocks.  Aren't those snowball blocks clever?

I just love seeing the beautiful interpretations you have put on my design.

The free pattern will be on the website until 31st December, so hurry in to download all the blocks.  Meanwhile I am working on another free BOM which I plan to give you in January.  It's looking very sweet, so I think you will  like it.


My computer is still at the doctor's - SIGH!  Oh well, at least I have my husband's computer I can grab to do some blogging if he's not using it.  I managed to complete another couple of Christmas presents, which means everything is now ready with just a few more presents to wrap and put under the tree.

This week I feel like a happy mother hen with lots of my chickens under my wings.  Daughter No 1 arrived home from overseas this morning for a few weeks, and Daughter No 2 and her four children will be here very soon.  Last night we babysat Son No 2's two boys.  So with lots of family around, it's time for me to take a little blogging break for a couple of weeks.

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and that you can pause long enough in this busy season to contemplate the wonder of God's love in sending Jesus.

  6. Seeing those lovely finished quilts is a great reminder to have a search and destroy mission to find the two pens I went to great lengths to buy. I even got up to see if they could possibly have been put away in their correct
    But find them I shall and then trace I shall and then I shall have some nice stitching for air conditioned nights.
    Be strong in the gift of grace..
