I am home and a couple of publications.

Hello everyone :) Thank you all for the lovely comments and well wishes for my time over with my kids and grandies :) I had a great time and loved all the cuddles and kisses I got from them. The Engagement Party was great and the very happy couple had a great time too. Lots of people and lots of food and lots of fun.


Here is Tara and Nick and me :) Was all good and was very sad to come back home. But we will be

jetting our way over to WA at the end of the year for their wedding.


I want to show you the two latest projects I have had published.

The first is in Patchwork & Stitching Vol. 10 No. 8

Patchwork & Stitching Vol 10 No 8

Its called Boxed Delights


I have used some of the Spring Flowers stitchery's and also some old X-rays to make the little box. The X-rays make it so its stiff and supports the sides and lid. One way of being economical.


Also in the latest Handmade Vol. 27 No. 9 issue

Handmade Vol 27 No 9

I have a patchwork Table Runner.


I even did some fancy machine quilting on it. That was fun to do.

I have decided I am going to make these patterns available thru my Etsy store and on here on my blog for those who want them that cannot get the magazine. Give me a few days to sort out the patterns and I will have them available for you soon.


Have you been over to the Among The Gum Tree blog and downloaded the fabulous remote holder that Joy has made?

Fabulous idea Joy!!


Next month (March) I will be giving a free pattern from the Among the Gum Trees blog so don't forget to pop in and have a look to see what I have up for you all to download.


Thank you all for your wonderful comments in regards to my Flirting with Flowers BOM. I am enjoying seeing everyone's and it thrills me to bits knowing you all are enjoying sewing them.

Number 2 block Dancing Daisys is available to download and will be free all this month and number 3 will be up on the 1st of March.

Have I got a sneak peek of it?….Hmmmm let me see…

No I didn’t have one so I had to take one for you all. This one is going to be called All In A Row.

Block 3 All In A Row

Have fun sewing everyone and very soon I will be able to catch up with all your blogs. I have missed blog hopping!!

Hugs to All………Vicki
