Exciting new Quilt

The postman delivered my copy of the January 2016 Australian Homespun magazine. I could not wait to open it.
Over 7 months ago, my quilt had gone off to the Homespun office to be photographed etc for the January issue. It has been hard to keep my mouth shut about this quilt for all that time.  So you can just imagine my excitement to see it in print.

In the meantime, I have just cross stitched this small sheep/bird design and enjoyed the simplicity of this design.

I missed out on FNWFs as we had family staying with us. I will have to join in the next one which will be in February.
Back to work tomorrow.

Have a good week.
Cheers,
Yvonne

Congratulations Yvonne! How wonderful for you to be published in Homespun!
I had no idea the process takes so long, must have been hard to not say anything about it to friends!

Congrats Yvonne, the design looks right up my daughter's street as she has a beach themed bedroom. Cute cross stitch too.

Congratulations Yvonne on this beautiful quilt! I had to send my Hubby out to buy it while we were out of town as I knew it would be sold out here! I just love it!
