Oh my goodness!
I just noticed my followers have gone over 1300!
What a gorgeous group of craft lovers you all are, so I'd best do something special for you!!
Leave a comment, just one, on this blog post and you'll go in the draw for this gorgeous new book of designs by Australia's Lynette Anderson!
I'll draw the winner on my birthday, February 21st. :-)
Thank you to everyone for understanding and supporting my need to 'pull back' from blogging a bit.
Mr E has decided that it's time I joined him 'outside' in his own favourite pastime, so yesterday he bought me these birthday gifts, and today I am going to christen them...
...on a ride to Mingela for lunch!
I haven't been on a motorbike since 1999, so this will be the start of some serious fun time with my beloved and a way to spend more time together. I love the pink in my helmet and jacket...I just couldn't have worn any other colour. ;-)
In my quiet times I have begun a new set of simple shabby stitcheries that could be used on just about anything. Another week or so and I will have them to show you, but for now...
And I also finished another block in the remake of my original Shabby Roses quilt.
This is the original quilt...
...and my remake is coming along beautifully in Tilda blues...
I got very excited this week when a parcel arrived for me. I had ordered a book from Maree that had been on my to-read list for a while, and was so excited that she was stocking it in her online store!
This will be my constant 'down-time' companion for a while to come. I think I should have been a 50's housewife... ;-)
Princess Sophie continues to make residence 'anywhere'. We have a notion that she is marking her territory for all of us to take note of.
Only one Show & Tell photo this week.
Susan has finished block 2 of "Give Thanks"...
Susan will be one of many followers who will come to a "Gum Tree Designers Morning Tea in the Park" on March 5th in Brisbane, so we'll get to meet face to face.
If you'd like to know more about the Gum Tree Designers flying in from all over Australia to Brisbane for our first face-to-face Gathering, have a read HERE.
If you can make it we'd love to meet you!!
As we're out of towners we're asking everyone to bring a plate of delish morning tea fare to share.
