Not long to go now ....

It is only a week today until all of the gumnut girls fly into Brisbane.  We are packing madly and things are getting a tad bit exciting. 

The girls let me know last night that I will be the last nutter to arrive in Brisbane - I have been warned to wear protective clothing so that I don't get crushed in the stampede for hugs - So if you know of anyone who will be on that flight or anywhere in the vicinity of the Brisbane arrivals lounge - Make sure they stay clear !!  Nutters in full flight won't be pretty - LOL

I have just had word this morning that Vignette Issue 2 will be released in a week or so. 

 Unfortunately I have made the decision to not order any more stock for awhile until I decide where I am heading but you can do what I have done and pop over to my gorgeous friend Sarah's shop and sign up for the next issue for $15.00 (Bargain) or A Full year's subscription for $60 (That's what I did).  Her shop is PATCHWORKS PLUS.

Whilst you are browsing through Sarah's shop you might like to sign up to Lynette Anderson's new Button Club "Christmas Fun" - It costs just $93 for the whole 8 months and each month you receive a button and the free pattern for that month - I love christmas quilts and am currently working on 2 so why not add another?

The winter's here in Tasmania can be very harsh but with mother nature playing all sorts of havoc throughout the southern hemisphere I have a feeling that this year is going to be worse than usual. 

 I love nothing more than to sit in front of the fire with my stitching on my lap so I have signed up for 2 BOM's to keep me occupied.  I have plenty of UFO's to work on but most require machine stitching so these two will fulfil my love of applique and stitching.

The first is Berries & Bluebirds by Gail Pan.  I purchased it here.

The second is one that I pre-ordered many months ago from the Fat Quarter Shop and is called "Cottage Charm" - Isn't it lovely?

In between stitching all of these new lovelies which will be arriving at my place soon I will be stitching up a number of new designs in my sketch book.  I love so many other designers that sometimes I find it hard to find the time to play with my own stuff - It seems to be a continous juggling act but one that I enjoy.

So the challenge for me now is to finish these newly ordered projects and not let them become a 2012 UFO statistic.

I will do my best.
