I am excited! Front cover!

I am totally over the moon with delight!

My bag I made for Down Under Quilts is on the front cover of the magazine and all by itself…Wow!! How excited I am!

When the lovely Deborah from Down Under Quilts asked me to make a bag in pink I just got all excited and sewed my little heart out and this is what I came up with.

I called it Pink Passion.

DUQ Pink Passion

Its a great magazine and you can get an online version of it too…you just have to register with your email address…great for those overseas.


Also all the fabulous Gum Nut Girls are having fabulous giveaways and soon they will be ending so hurry and get your name down for your chance to hopefully win.


Did you see Joy’s from JoyPatch’s? She is having 4 of her quilt-as-you-go patterns - "Diamonds and Braids", "Dragonflight", "Jelly Charm" and "Slice and Dice" also be including some gorgeous charm squares to get you started from the Moda Fig Tree Quilts range - "Gypsy Rose"!!! Like Wow!!! So pop on over to her blog.

Her Giveaway will be ; a pattern by Australian Designer 'Lynette Anderson' and a packet of Lynette's handmade wooden buttons to use in the pattern, 3 fat eights to start you on your way with the delightful stitchery cushion in the pattern and; one of her pieces of hand work; a calico baking throwover cloth, with a prim design.


I have finally worked out how to link a URL to a picture so click on the picture and it will take you to their blogs :)
