Now, for my other exciting news...

 i received a package a couple days ago... the Latest Quilters Companion Magazine Issue No. 47.... with my Quilt in it!!!

Very exciting!! My first magazine! 

It has my Diamond Bouquet Pattern... step by step instructions, lovely diagrams (thanks to you honey!)

and........My name in Print!!!

.......It's not exactly flashing lights on Broadway, like (in a former life) one may have hoped?? But I'm Stoked! A nice way to begin the year!!

AND.....Thank you for your kind emails and msgs regarding our move!! We have had a really busy couple weeks. We thankfully sold our house... We have moved into another, were all settled and we even like this new one better than the last!! Esp me!! It may have something to do with the fact i have a lovely new sewing room... it's been fun putting together... I'll show you some pictures soon...

Oh, and in the hustle and bustle...  a quick snapshot of a new little Sherbet Pips project.. for a girlfriend and her sweet new baby girl. Congratulations Hayley...xx
