A new name for my blog

I have been a bit busy with organising my new venture which is an online Quilting and Craft Supplies Shop. To say I am excited about this is an understatement…I am ecstatic!!
To get this going I decided I needed a new name to go with it all and I have come up with
 ‘The Pickledish Patch’
I am going to replace ‘Tozz’s Corner’ with
‘The Pickledish Patch’
as well so it all coincides with my website.
You will notice my banner has the new name. *grin*
I am going to have for sale Moda fabrics and Lecien products and different notions, threads,
ribbons and ric rac and all sorts of goodies including quilt patterns and sewing patterns.
I have made a button and if you want to put it on your blog I would be delighted and if you could link it to my website too, that is half done….well quarter done,
the link is
 Capture
Also if you could change the name of my blog in your blog roll to The Pickledish Patch I would love that. Thank you very much. I don't know if this does it automatically or not but if you still got Tozz’s Corner can you please change it *grin* Thanks.
I should say I am still the same old Vicki and nothing has changed there….just a bit older and no more greys in my hair as I had them coloured the other day….might have a couple more wrinkles and apart from all that…I am still the same.
I am going to have a giveaway very soon too as not only have I got a new name and business but also I have over 600 followers!!
Wow…I am over the moon with excitement about that and thank you for following my blog *smile* …..Also….I have posted over 300 posts so that is a pretty darn special event too.
So keep an eye out for my giveaway very soon!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Out Of The Box BOM 2011
How is your collection of embellishments and goodies going for ‘Out Of The Box’ - BOM?
I am about to sew all the blocks together and of course I have taken pictures of the individual blocks….so of course I got to give you a bit of a looksee.

I am so loving this BOM and so is Dawn. We are constantly discussing our progress with each other.
I can’t wait to start it with you all too. Have you been collecting your goodies for it?
~~~~~~~~~
It’s not long now until the little fat man comes down our chimneys and we get to see what is wrapped up under our Christmas Trees. The excitement is building and I know the kids all around the world will be counting down the sleeps.
So come back very soon for my giveaway to celebrate all my excitements and hopefully you will win some lovely things. I don’t know what I am going to give away yet but it will be nice.
hugs to all………Vicki
