Out at last - the NEW Block of The Month Quilt, Life Is A Celebration', from Australian Homespun magazine! I was thrilled when this arrived in the mail this morning:
I have four small contributions to the quilt which I am quite excited about (you have to wait to see the other three because part of the fun of this quilt is that it's a mystery quilt!). Don't miss out on your issues if you wish to be part of all the fun - get a subscription to Homespun.
Profits raised go to Ovarian Cancer Australia so this is a very important quilt. As you sit and stitch I hope you remember that you too are helping other women, as we all work together to try and raise awareness, and also assists with treatment programs:
Of course life here is as hectic as always. While attempting to be the 'Working Mother' during school holidays I find myself easily distracted by fabulous craft projects invented by Georgia, such as 'The Snow Kingdom Diorama':
You will be happy to know that 'Down In The Garden' is almost finished being hand quilted (yes, all instructions for hand quilting are in Block 10) and the binding is about to go on. I couldn't resist a photo or two of some flowers from my garden on top of the quilt after I'd picked them and popped them in one of my favourite jugs:
I am really happy that this quilt is almost ready to hand over to you to start on. I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed working on it (and some of my wonderful friends who helped me with the stitching - more on that soon). I hope you will enjoy it as much as me:
Until next time,

P.S. Rest assured that I read each and every comment you each leave (thankyou, I appreciate them all). I have discovered today that no-one has been receiving my replies due to a Hotmail/Typepad communication glitch. I am in the process of changing over to a new email address with Bigpond so this will solve the problem. When I know it's working correctly I will change and give you my new address. If you have a question for me please email me rather than leave a comment so I can reply to you.
