Are You Stitching Mrs. Beasley's Sampler Quilt?

Vignette magazine Issue 10 is out and already I have seen lots of images of what you have been stitching on the net! Very exciting:

I can't believe that in just a few days some of you have already pieced the first block and are working on the applique and the stitchery:

Hope each of you also enjoy the free postcard included with Issue 10 - Mini Pincushion No. 1. As well as having a lot of fun creating the pincushion, I have also been loving how practical it is too:

While you are stitching your new quilt why not munch on some Chocolate Caramel Nougat Slice from the recipe on page 8. Yummy:

Chutney and News...

The winner of the Vignette Chutney Competition (see last post) was Joyce from Queensland. To those of you that entered, thank you all so very very much for all the time and effort you put into your entries. I have to say it was REALLY difficult selecting a winner; I did think about a 'chutney issue' but, well, you know. So yesterday was the day for final test kitchen photography and here is my version of Joyce's recipe:

Joyce's recipe is from her Grandma Irene who will get to meet in Issue 11 of Vignette magazine as well as enjoying the recipe. It's a stunning and unique Australian recipe that you will love. Congratulations to Joyce!

Naturally this brings us to Issue 10 that I know you are all just dying to get your hands on! Well finally, after so much anticipation I have been promised that it will arrive here on Monday - yes MONDAY!!!!!!
