Feeling Truly Blessed


After the awful week we have had with the weather it was nice to wake up to sunshine today. There is lots of mositure still around as you can see from the heavy dew on the back lawn but the sun is shining and that is wonderful.



Today is my birthday and I was blessed with gifts this morning and a lovely card from my hubby who always buys lovely cards.


It is officially a PJ day for me and I am enjoying sitting around like a lady of leisure - LOL


Yesterday I was pleased to find my copy of the latest Country Threads mag in my letter box.


Guess what?  There is a lovely 10 page spread about "Designs By Fee"


I feel very blessed to have been given some space in the magazine and such a lovely interview written by Nicole who has a way with words.


Lots of my designs got given some space


And the Pattern for "Fee's True Love" Is there for you all to make - Do you remember when we had a competition on the blog to name that quilt?  Seems like only yesterday.  This was an amazing birthday suprise and I am very chuffed.  And.......  the next issue of Patchwork & Stitching will also have a feature and interview of me too so April is really my month of happenings this year.



So today I will be having a "me" day doing the things I want to do.  I will be printing and packing patterns. 

The photographs are back from being printed so my little printer will be churning away for most of the day.  Then the girls will be helping me to fold and pack. 

I will tell you who my new pattern stockists are in a few days once their stock has arrived.


I have also been busy doing this......  A little offer that my newsletter subscribers will receive in their newsletter next week.  You can sign up on the right hand side of my blog if you want.


I am also hoping to cross a few things of my lists this weekend.


One of them is a new design which use these.......... 

What are you up to this weekend?  Is the sun shining in your part of the world?

Love and Hugs until next time when I will release the final part of the Flowers of Love Quilt.
