Lookie what I won!

Don't you just love giveaways??? I do! Well, Gail from Miss~Nance, had a week of giveaways last week. Yes, I know I was very slack not to let you all know about it. Maybe in the back of my mind I wanted to give myself more of a chance!

Anyway, have a look at what I won!

It's an altered tin that Gail has made, plus a fat quarter in my choice of colour! I love the little tin, and think it's just gorgeous. I was so wrapped that I won. Thank you Gail!

Well, I am so happy to see that you like my block 2 for Stringybark Farm! Thank you for all your comments that have been left. It's such a joy to know that others are enjoying my blocks! I can't wait to see some Rustys, and Freddies come to life. Please let me know when you finish a block, because I would love to share them on my blog.

I have some exciting news that involves a popular craft magazine, and one of my designs! And that is all I shall say on that subject for now, but I shall keep you posted on what is happening!

Maree, from Farmyard Crafts, asked me how I was going with my Homespun Breast of Friends blocks. Very slowly is my response! I have finished the first four blocks, but the fifth one is a BIG one. And so it has unfortunately slid down on my priority list sadly! But I have been reinspired, and now that block 6, 7, 8 and 9 are released- I really need to get moving!!

This was my Block 4, that I did a month or so ago now.

We are selling the Breast of Friends fabric kits at work, (Patchwork with Gail B,) for anyone that is interested. It is a pack with the "In the Pink" range of fabric, and enough to make your quilt. It's gorgeous stuff in real life, and is incredibly popular! And we also have 'scrap bags' of the fabric, if you want some bits and pieces to throw in.

It's raining today, and freezing cold outside, so it sounds like the perfect day for sewing! I better keep moving with Maree's paper bag swap item!
