Congratulations to Lynn in good old England, who was commenter 119 in my 'Flowers for Sale' giveaway! Thank you to everyone who entered. I wish I could send a gift to all of you. xx
Tomorrow I will carefully package this framed and coloured version of the my stitchery and send it off to Lynn in the post. It has half the globe to travel...what stories it could tell!
I went looking over Lynn's blog when I drew her winning number, and WOW, this lady is a very talented cross-stitch designer, so make sure you go and visit her blog HERE for some sweet eye-candy! She is also extremely generous with free designs...what a worthwhile giveaway winner she is! Bless you, Lynn!
Speaking of talented designers, Australia is brimming with them!
(I know, I am an Aussie too so what else would I say, right?)
Well, my nationality aside, I'm sure you'll agree that we've got something in the water down here that blesses us. This month I was truly humbled to be able to stitch one of the blocks in Rosalie Quinlan's newest quilt. The blocks are the most beautiful I've ever seen from Rosie, and to be able to stitch one for her was a real blessing for me. I got to see up close and personal just how much work she puts in to her designs, and I'll admit I was more than a little nervous stitching for her. This is a sneak of the block I did for her quilt...
Visit Rosalie's blog HERE for more peeks at some blocks in her soon-to-be-released redwork quilt design. You will drool, girls...so have a tissue on hand, and a cuppa 'cause you'll be there a while. ;-)

Time to put my feet up for a little while, maybe finish that yummy pot of soup I made on Sunday and do some stitching...
