To all of you, including Zelda, who have been asking, "Where is she?", here I am! Sorry to be so remiss in catching up with you but I am working on all sorts of projects for you for the year (maybe years!) ahead.
One of the little things that I have been doing is making quilt labels for the back of 'Down In The Garden'. Of course, I always have problems stopping at one of anything so when (eventually) you reach Block 10 you will find two pattern pages of labels you may like to add to your quilt:
I hope that you enjoy adding the final touch to your own version when the time comes. You know how I feel about labels and I am (of course) adding a few to the back of my quilt:
Seeing as many of my friends helped so much with the stitchery on 'Down In The Garden' I have given them credit and stitched them into the history of my quilt:
And, I have been playing about with a wonderful new range of fabric from Lecien, 'Old New Fabric Collection 30's'. You are going to see LOTS of this fabric in the projects that I have been working on. The range is really fantastic and when you start putting the fabrics together you feel like a 30's woman playing with her stash of the day!:

P.S. For those of you awaiting 'Down In The Garden' the patterns will be heading instore this week and next, but PLEASE allow the shop you have ordered from time to cut kits and mail out to you. I have been in close contact with many of the stores running this as a Block Of The Month and I can assure you they have put a HUGE amount of work into selecting fabrics and making sure you will not be disappointed. Enjoy the anticipation of something lovely arriving in your postbox!
