So, I'm too late to officially sign up to host a giveaway, but what the heck. I want to join in the fun too! And Christmas is all about giving, so consider this a Christmas Giveaway!
So, what's up for grabs? Well, we have two prizes. The first random person drawn from the ever reliable, random number generator, will win 2 Heather Ross 'Seagulls' from Lightning Bugs and Other Mysteries Fat Quarters and a Cinderberry Stitches pattern. The second person will win one Heather Ross Fat Quarter.
Now, I don't know if any of you know - but Heather Ross fabric is extremely desirable and WANTED by crafters. For example - just one of those fat quarters could sell for $20 - 50 AUD. Crazy, crazy stuff. I know.
So, how do you win? You've got two options. Simply leave a comment for one chance to win. Or for a second chance - leave a comment, and then make a post about the giveaway on your blog, and then come back and comment again to say you've posted. Got that? Easy!
Giveaway closes Sunday 19th of December 9am AEDST. Winner announced soon after! Oh,and it is open to International residents. :)
Good luck and have fun!

So a new computer was bought, and my goodness - within 30 seconds I can be on the internet! It's amazing! And then I find out that everyone else has been enjoying such normal things like this for years. To me - it's quite an amazing experience, and such a novelty!

Just waiting. So I am relinquished to using an old laptop at the moment. Hence - the lack of posts, and no photos of all my latest things.
Photo and quilt credit to Merry Made QuiltsSo, here are some goodies I've been admiring on the net recently. I never tire of seeing such interesting and fascinating ways to photograph quilts. And modern quilts? Yum. Mega yum!

In my absence from blogging, I have actually been doing alot of sewing. Which has been wonderful. I can't actually show you the main project that I have been working on for a few months. That's a secret *shhhh.* But here is a wee little pic. I'll be able to show you this beautiful quilt next year sometime. Which sounds so very far away, but I'm sure it will be here soon.
Another thing people must know about me - is that I love selvedges. I know this may seem strange to some people. But I do. I love them! The little coloured dots. The writing. *sigh*
And finally. (Well, not really actually. I still have more projects to show you, but I'll save them for another day.)

Rosalie, sharing some tips at the Immerse Stitching Day.
And it's not like I don't have things to share with you ('cause I do,) - I've just been so busy, it's crazy. But hey, it's my blog, and I can post whenever I want to - right?!So, over the next few days, I'm going to share lots of new goodies and projects I've been working on lately. I'm also going to issue a challenge (ohh...intriguing!), and maybe start a new swap (since there was some interest in the paper bag swap...hereafter dubbed - 'In the bag' swap.)
What I accomplished for the day. I worked on Leannes project.
But, I know I'm awfully late in posting this - but I had a FAB day out at the Immerse Winery Stitching Day, hosted by Rosalie, Melly and Leanne. Oh, it was so much fun. And the food was fantastic. And the projects were great. And did I mention how great the food was? Crikey. I think I put on 2kgs just from the day alone.
I'd like to introduce you to Mary (left), one of the girls I work with. I tell you, she's awesome! Here we are stitching together, and nattering away too, of course.
I had a wonderful day out, with nearly all the girls from Patchwork with Gail B attending. What a great day out to relax and sew.
All up, there were 8 of us from work, including Gail herself, and Rosalie jumped in for a piccy too.
Well done to the girls for hosting such a lovely day! Can't wait till next year!
Check out either of the girls blogs for more photos from the stitching day.
Oh, and for the local girls - there will be a sale at Gail B's October 14-16th. Check it out on the website for more info!

So it was with great excitement that Mellys first range of fabric from Creative Abundance, called "Where the Wind Blows," arrived at work this morning! And guess what? We were the first store in all of Australia to get it! Thanks for dropping it off Melly!
And so I was the lucky girl who got to unwrap the pretty bolts, and cut some into fat quarters. Such fun!
And so. I just had to buy some. How utterley cute is it?! And you know what I realised? I'm the first person to have bought some of Mellys fabric! How cool is that?!!
So if you would like some of Mellys fabric, we have the full collection at Patchwork with Gail B.
And to continue with the Melly and Me theme - only 3 sleeps to go till the Immerse Stitching Day!!! Can't wait!

Also, a quick note to those rather patient individuals who have been asking me about the Stringybark Farm BOM. Wow. I know. I have been so terrible with this, and I feel awfully ashamed and guilty. I'm so sorry girls!! There are still a few more stitchery blocks to come, but I really can't see myself having the time to do it at the moment. And I want to do this justice. I don't want to do a half quality job, just to get it up and done.

I chose 4 Fat Quarters from one of my fave fabric ranges at the moment, Sugar and Spice II by Macs Craft. We have the whole range at work, and the colours are so delicious and bright. You can't help but feel happy walking past them!
Leave a comment by Sunday 15th of August 11am AEST. Winner will be picked by random number generator.

I've also been playing with a jelly roll (I'm doing a great job of blaming Moda, aren't I?) This is another of my favourite ranges, "Celebrate Spring," also by Sandy Gervais.
