A new project & my Aunts goodies

I have finally got to taking some photos so you can see what I am working on at the moment.

Untitled-1I love flowers and stitching them has been a delight.  Still some sewing to do and so cant show you the finished piece…


In the next issue of Down Under Quilts is a lovely bag I designed for the magazine. Its mostly pink to go with their theme they are having for the October issue Number 137.


So there’s a few sneak peeks at things to come. I still get very excited seeing my ‘ideas’ in the magazines.


Oh Yes!! My dear Aunt’s goodies she sent me….I did say I would show you….there is heaps and heaps of laces….I just love it all. And she is going to send me another bag of goodies soon too…I feel so privileged to have these from her.


Lots and lots of goodies *Grin*

Soon there is going to be a big reveal of the secret that's going on. Not long now

It will be worth the wait :)

Hugs to All…….Vicki

OH what a lovely pile of "treasures"--you need some of those wood bobbins that bunny hill has on her site to whind all that pretty lace and trim on--oh and I have seem them use round wood clothes pins and then they display in baskets or glass jars to look at while they are sewing----love the peaks--and the bag is so pretty==pink is my very favorite color!!! Hugs, just, Di
