Photo update

Here's some photos, like I promised. The bears on the pink minkee are finished and waiting, the flowers have been started. As you can see there is a new minkee on the go too, nothing like a bit of variety to keep things interesting.

And here's a table runner I decided I had to add to the list; using up strippy bits from a log cabin quilt. I was going to wait till it was totally finished but thought that might keep you waiting too long.
butrfly2200 and Sue Daley designs both have giveaways on the go at the moment too. Never a dull moment in blogland!

A Winning Week...

I haven't had time for photos but just had to share the news. The fun started out when I found out last week that I had won the draw on Gail Pan's blog. Wow! That's two lovely new patterns for me to use. Then my aunt arrived. Her birthday is two days before mine and we also share our love of crafts and patchwork. So it was off on a shopping spree for we two birthday girls. Patchwork shops of course! She left on Wednesday (which was my birthday); and then Thursday I ventured to the post office. What a very exciting visit that was! Firstly the quilt I had sent away for our patchwork group to raffle had arrived home safely and so beautifully done. Secondly, I received a couple of cards and a gift voucher for some new clothes for my birthday. Gail Pan's patterns arrived wrapped in special patchwork paper with a handmade card attached. They are both so lovely!! And last but not least - and the biggest surprise of all - was a copy of the new "Material Obsession" book which I discovered I had won from a Down Under Quilts Magazine competition I had entered. Funnily enough I had read only this week that someone else (can't remember who), had won the book from the competition and I thought at the time - oh well, guess I didn't win. What a surprise! And it is such a beautiful book full of so many lovely quilts - I would guarantee you would want to make them all!!

Mum arrived yesterday for a visit for a few days. We went kayaking again today. We are enjoying such lovely days its hard to believe its the middle of winter at times. Colder at night and in the morning though.

The minkee quilt is progressing - will update with some photos soon.
