It’s nice to have some luck come my way

I am rather pleased with my luck this week as I not only won a giveaway from the fabulous Karen’s blog but I also won a wonderful book from Quilters Companion magazine.

I feel on top of the world with these gorgeous wins as the wonderful Collections for a Cause charm pack I won from Karen’s giveaway


(That’s mine in the centre)

will be just perfect for one of the projects that are in the gorgeous book. Its a fabulous book by Kim Diehl and I was hoping like heck that I would win it as I just love her style and designs.


So when I got a package in the mail from Quilters Companion I was just about beside myself :)

I see Jen from Elephantz has been having a good week too as she has been published in Creating Country Threads magazine with her gorgeous Wonky Houses


and hop on over to her fabulous blog as she is giving away a really beautiful rose appliqué.

Congrats Jen on being published …Your designs deserve to be published too.


I finished off a couple of little things which has kept me sane hehehe

the first is a mug cosy which I sent to Trsh_n as she and I were swap partners from the Craft Forum, this was great for me as it is machine appliqué which was great fun to do and it has given me confidence in doing it more.

and the second is a Framed Hexagon for Ondrea

These Framed Hexagons have been a bit of a hit with most everyone on the Craft Forum and I look forward to seeing all of them done too.

Have a good day all and happy sewing :)

Hugs to All……..Vicki
