The lucky winner of the 'Butterfly Garden Sewing Tin' is:
I was pretty excited when I drew Kathy out of the hat (well, little green bucket actually) because in her comment she mentioned that she just uses an old plastic box for her sewing tin.

It's an apron pattern that I'm working on for an upcoming teaching event in New South Wales. Here on my design wall you can see the prototype apron in yummy 'Prints Charming' fabric (this one I'll keep for myself I think!).

I can't wait to get to have it ready for the ladies coming to the 'Jukejema Quilting Barn' retreat in August in Nowra. If you think you'd like to join us at 'Waterslea', which overlooks the river, there are still just a few spots left for the weekend in August. It will be a really wonderful weekend and I'll be there with Rosalie Quinlan, Gail Pan, and Viv Robinson too.
