It has been a glorious weekend - Not a very productive one but enjoyable. Look at my gorgeous magnolia which is just starting to come out in flower. I have 3 of these - I have them planted in 1/2 wine barrels at the back of our house.

Eva has landed in store but my web site is totally out of date and needs some work - much like my house but I am getting there - If you find that you just can't wait until I upload them to the web just drop me an e-mail. We have Jelly Rolls, Layer Cakes, Charm Packs and Meterage. This is a gorgeous range and one of those that we will still talk about in years to come.

Even though I didn't get any sewing done over the weekend I did spend an afternoon cutting meterage ready for re-cutting into fat quarters. I also have lots of 1/2 metre rolls ready to take to the show.

I thought that I would take this opportunity to show you a few pictures of some of my favourite Robert Gordon Pottery pieces. I have a passion for his pottery and have lots and lots :) This pattern is "Liberty"

Remember the give away I was having in conjunction with my sale? Well today I drew the winner of the Jelly Roll. Congratulations Narelle - Please drop me a line with your address details and I will send out your "Blessings" Jelly Roll.

Just one more sleep until the Among The Gum Trees 1st Free Pattern - I wonder what it is going to be? Hmmmmm - Well Yes of course I know but I am not telling - You will just have to pop over tomorrow morning and download it. I will say that it is very very pretty and I am going to make one too.

I am working on a number of projects this week so will pop back with some pictures very soon. Have an enjoyable and productive week.

I like the look of that new Moda fabric, lol, told you I'm addicted!! I have one of Robert Gordon's first dinner set designs, had it for years, it's a gorgeous yellow one. won't let anyone use it now because you can't get it anymore!! I love his wares! Amazing.

Hi Fiona! :-)

It's funny, only last night I was making a blend of chamomile and lavender tea and couldn't find a tea strainer! I thought, I really must get one of those individual ones... and Robert Gordon came to mind! My friend has the complete set of Liberty and it is simply divine. And your magnolia is beautiful! And so is your Eva!!!

Lots of love to you special lady!
Hugs! Vikki xo :-)
