Hi Girls! This afternoon my Mum and my little Georgia drew out the names from the 'Leftover Butterfly Garden Fabric Competition'. The winners are:
Lissa Jane, Sally (the one from South Carolina), Nancy, and Janine (who as per her comment "won't have to take her four girls under 6 into the patchwork shop now"), can you please email me your snail mail addresses so I can pop your parcels in the post. Congratulations!
Now many of you have said you will miss my blog for the next little bit while I'm off teaching in Norway. I'll miss many of you too but I am just SO EXCITED to be meeting all those lovely Norwegian bloggers and quilters. I feel like I'm going to meet up with old friends. Isn't it wonderful how so many of us have made connections through wonderful blogland?! So I'm sure if you click over to Abyquilt and Hanne's Quilt Corner while I'm away you'll be able to see what I'm up to via their blogs (more links from their blogs too of other Norwegian bloggers).
Now many (okay, heaps and heaps) of you have asked if you could just squeeze into my suitcase. Seeing as this isn't quite possible (there's just too many quilts in there) I have decided to do a special little competition while I'm away. When I return I will put together a parcel which will have all the patterns that I am teaching in Norway ('Peace and Plenty', 'The Waverley Bag', 'Friendship's Basket')some of which haven't been released yet. And because I know how much everyone would like to be part of the 'Butterfly Garden' Workshop and have a block designed exclusively for them I will ask the winner to email a garden photo or two and I will design two blocks for the winner for their quilt. It will be a 4" square and so will also fit into many of my other quilt patterns so you can use it a few times if you like.
I will also draw out an additional 5 names and they will win an individually designed block for their quilts. To enter, simply leave a comment before I return.
Of course, I promise to take thousands of photos (don't think I'm joking!) to share with all of you.
Thankyou to each of you who have wished me well for my journey, your wishes are in my heart.
