A few days since my last post, I know! I have been very busy finishing off projects and articles for magazines, finalising my 2009 teaching appointments, working on my project for Jukejema Quilting Barn's retreat in New south Wales that I'll be teaching at in August (can't wait to show you that), local teaching at Foothills Fabric and Threads, and of course celebrating with my friend Rosalie:
Yes, Rosalie's brand new book is out! I snapped this photo of her with the very first book off the press when she dropped in to give a sneak peak at a class I was teaching on Tuesday night. The ladies were VERY excited to be the first to see the book! It is truely divine. For the thousands of Rosalie Quinlan fans you will be in love with this book!
When Rosalie dropped in I was teaching a 'Butterfly Garden' Block of the month class. Some of my favourite pieces of the quilt are right in the centre:
I particularly like the little double pink butterflies so much that I have had a few samples of tins made with this part of the quilt.
I love good quality. Sadly, this means that the tins I have selected turned out to be too expensive to wholesale really. Bad in general (don't worry, I'm shopping around still) but good for the one tin I have left for a giveaway:
This is the tin that I personally use for my sewing tin now, and one of you out there will win one for your sewing tin. It's a 7" diameter so it's a lovely size for your pincushion, needles, scissors, and threads.
To enter the draw, simply leave a comment before Thursday the 26th. It can be about anything: your current sewing tin, what's in your sewing tin, how you're going with 'Butterfly Garden' or any of my other patterns, books or DVD, anything that takes your fancy!
On Thursday I'll show you my new Christmas stocking pattern that looks a bit like this:
