Pattern give away and an exciting order.

I am still in the "go slow" mood in relation to my craftwork. I keep telling myself that I have to get a move on-- but it is easier said than done.

I had made up 2 designs earlier this year and Marilyn, from The Patchwork Teahouse, had them in her stall at the APQ Show in Melbourne in April. I realised that I have not had a pattern give away for these 2 designs. So, if you would like to win one of the patterns, please leave a comment for a chance to win.

A few weeks ago, I decided that I needed some new fabric therapy. I love Lynette Anderson's fabric designs(  and decided I would visit her online shop and buy some fabric. I bought  The Candy Cane Angel angel delight bundle, a bundle of Yoko Saito's style of fabrics, the Applique rod and some wildflower ribbons. When Lynette saw my name with the order, it jolted her memory that she used to have my brooches in her original patchwork store many years ago. I must say that Lynette kept me very busy painting all those years ago, because her original patchwork store sold many of my brooches and some of my buttons too. When I checked my emails, there was an email from Lynette requesting more brooches for her new store. I was delighted to have my brooches in her gorgeous new shop and  madly  started painting again. So I managed to get a few different brooches together and I sent off a parcel last week for Lynette's new shop, Little Quilt Store ( .

It has been a glorious day today and a walk along the esplanade was much needed. The day did not start off well as I had to have an urgent visit to the dentist. A tooth had broken off whilst I was having breakfast on the weekend! I was glad when that visit was over.
Cheers. Until next time,
