Look what arrived in the studio this weekend. My new Janome Horizon – She is a long awaited dream come true.
Her and I became well acquainted over the past 2 days
I think I might call her Molly – Not sure why – I just like it….. Quilting with her was joyful
And my project for Adelaide’s Let Get Stitched in March was finished. I had 2 more finishes too which I will show you next time.

Most of you would already know that I love lists and I like to forward plan. So I have a wonderful product to show you today which is going to keep me very well planned indeed !
Would you like to add some colour to your day at the same time as making your planner more efficient and more personal? If so, Personal Planner has a great idea I think you’ll love! I can’t wait to get mine !
Their planners provide you with endless design possibilities. You can change colour, text and design on front/back cover as well as inlay. There are also clever boxes for to-do list, gym session, preschool, idea of the week and weather. Friend’s and family member’s birthdays can also be added to the inlay directly from Facebook. They print and deliver the finished product directly to your doorstep. Here are a few things that I like about these planners:
- Design the front/back cover
- Tons of ways to design the inside to suit your style & needs.
- Add friends & family members birthdays to the inlay
- Choose between 4 different sizes
- You pick the start date.
- And best of all its fun and easy :)
So would you like to win a planner of your very own?
If so please visit their website and drool all over the designs they have on offer and come back here and tell me your favourite colour and pattern. This will give you 1 entry in the draw. For an additional 2 entries please go to their Facebook Page and “Like” them.
A winner will be drawn on Friday 1st February at 9pm AEST.
This Give Away is open to participants world wide so good luck and happy drooling.

I am very lucky to live in a lovely country and in a beautiful home state full of State Forests, Picturesque Mountains, Beautiful Beaches and lots of beautiful farm land but at this time of the year after an especially dry winter it can be a very dangerous place to be.
Our state has been subject to some dreadful fires and now lots of different fires have begun in other states. It is frightening the amount of damage, loss of property and the loss of life that occurs when we have uncontrolled fires – Stay safe and do what you can for the bushfire relief programs being run by Red Cross. 2 shops in my home state are both holding stitching days this weekend – Calico Crossroads & The Quilted Crow, sadly I have to work but I will be making donations to both.
Some friends were evacuated from their home because of the fires and weren’t allowed back for a number of days so we hosted them for a roast dinner – These are the flowers they brought me – That was so thoughtful and totally unnecessary but they didn’t want to come empty handed – Bless them xxxx
I have been keeping busy of an evening stitching some more blocks in my Garden Treasures Quilt. It is coming together nicely.
I would have blogged before now but Blogger has been playing up for ages so finally I have resorted to Live Writer which seems much easier than I expected.
Have a lovely week.
