Gosh….its been a while


Hello dear peeps…I got that from someone

else and thought it was ok to use.

I think I would rather be called peeps than guys.

Guys are blokes and gals are girls. Well that's my opinion.

Hmmm…well its been a while since I last blogged and I

have done a few things since my last post.

One of the things I have done is get a new car (second hand)

we are really pleased with it and it feels and looks like new.

Nice to have a bit of luxury while driving.

our new car




Also we went to the AQM in Melbourne last weekend and saw heaps and heaps

of gorgeous new designs and things coming out for 2014.

Loved it all and could have spent thousands!! No kidding!!

I did spend a bit tho and one of those things is a new quilting frame for me…Yay!!

I am so excited about this and it will be delivered in a couple of weeks…

so you know what I will be doing then don't you?

The quilt on it isn't mine as I got the pic off the net.




Also got a heap of new Charm Packs which are available in my store…


these wont be available in the US until next year…how we get them early is a mystery.




I have a sneak peek at a new design I have done

DPP_0006 (2) (Large) 

It has turned out lovely and was such fun to stitch.

Do you like doing stitcheries? I do, and any hand sewing

like binding quilts, especially at night times while watching the telly.

Happy sewing everyone and hugs to all….
