What A Week !!

It has been such a busy week that I have not checked in to blog land very much at all but will spend a little while this afternoon catching up with everybody.
Do you remember this box which contained my "secret" project?
It was a quilt for "Pattern Press" called Hickory Dickory Dock designed by Chitter Chatter Designs.



Here is my version ......... If you want to make it for the little one in your life ask your store to get in touch with Pattern Press to order it in for you. Or alternatively they can see all of Pattern Press's Designs in Sydney next week.

This is the little table runner that I made for the Breast Cancer Luncheon last weekend. It was a a silent auction item. The luncheon raised over $33,000 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation which was fantastic. It is an annual event at my workplace and continues to grow.

I have so many projects that I wish to at least start in the next week or two but also have lots of work to put into my new web site which is almost ready to launch. Fabric has been arriving as well as patterns, books and sewing bits so it has been lots of fun unpacking it all. I have decided to launch the web site before the backyard store as it could be a few months before it is completely finished. I will let you know about the launch of the web store and the giveaway which will be happening to celebrate it.

I hope that you have all been keeping warm and have been productive. It is the first day of winter tomorrow so rug up and stay healthy !!

Hugs,
