Happy New Year everyone!
It's a hot and humid summer morning in North Queensland, Australia, as we greet the first day of 2015.
As the air conditioner will be controlling the atmosphere in my home today I think a bit of stitching will be the perfect pastime - with numerous glasses of ice cold ginger beer to quench my thirst.
Are you ready for some fresh stitching to bring in the New Year?
"The Vintage Kitchen" - a free 9 month Block of the Month...
"The Vintage Kitchen" will run from January to September, 2015, and I'll be sharing one free block on the 1st of each month.
January's block celebrates baking because as a child in the very early 60's my most vivid memories are of being in the kitchen every day with Nana as she baked for our little threesome - her, Pop, and I.
I think of baking as an act of love, service, blessing and delight...
The blocks will stitch up quickly each month as they all finish inside a 3" square!
You can download the 1st month's free block HERE.
I've also put together the material and cutting requirements for you to make the wall quilt in case you'd like to gather your supplies now. The file is HERE for you to download.
The completed wall quilt measures 13.5 inches x 21.5 inches.
KITS SOLD OUT!
also have a limited number of kits for "The Vintage Kitchen", but due to exorbitant overseas postage rates they are only available to Australian purchasers.
Spread the word about this free BOM as I think it will be loads of fun and we always want to share the fun with our friends, right?

I'm going to make mine into a project this weekend, just not decided yet what it will become.
