I know it has been another long pause between posts. I could go into an in depth explanation about the failings of my home computer and the continual appearance of the "blue screen of death" however, I will spare you the details and myself the raised blood pressure! Suffice to say, I will be buying a new computer in the next few weeks when I can make up my mind about changing to a Mac or sticking with a PC. I am not usually one for such a big decision but I am sure I will decide soon. I am currently at Creative Abundance using a lovely WORKING computer to write this post.
I am sure you would like to know what I have been up to. I have been working diligently on my second range of fabric for LECIEN. This week was all about choosing the colour placement within the designs. It is always the part I love most. The new range is called "Sweet Broderie" and it is looking wonderful. I can't wait till you can all see it. It won't be released till later in the year but I promised you will get sneak peeks along the way.
I have just finished my block for the new Quilt-Aid quilt. I have seen a peek of all the blocks by your favourite designers and know that this years quilt will be just as beautiful as last years. I will give details as they become available.
Melly and I are also in the discussion stages of a wonderful book project together which is quite exciting for both of us.
This weekend I began hand quilting "Advent Angels" and then had a "What the heck am I doing?" moment. I then proceeded to undo the quilting and promptly took the quilt to the machine quilters place. A good decision I think!
I have also decided to release one of my favourite wall quilts called "Peppermint Stitches". You may have seen it in a previous edition of Homespun magazine. It is a gorgeous christmas wall quilt with two cute quilt labels on the back.
I hope to get back to you very soon with some more of whats been going on.
P.S. I have just finished reading "The Book Thief" which was a great read. Has anyone else read it?
