I am sooooo back on track it is riiiiiiiiiidiculous!!!! Life is WONDERFUL............. :))
So many things to update you all with but I will have to spread them out with a few posts. This post is all about the AQM..... the recent trade show I went to in Melbourne just a couple of weeks ago.
It was so much fun as always and I was neighbour to my choc eating partner in crime...Gail of course!!!! What did we consume in the chocolate department Gail???? way too much but Chocolate coated Raspberry licorice is THE best...to date!!
Can you tell Gail is high on Choc raspberry licorice???? I had to fight her for it.......!! LOL Thanks for the accomm Gail........... MWAH!
I was also blessed to have one of my dearest friends "Jenny" come along to help me out. Jen was there with us for the whole weekend and it was so much fun hanging out together. I don't get to see her often as she is in Victoria and I in NSW so it was precious. Love ya Jen MWAH!!!!!!!
Another highlight was popping in for a cuppa with my lovely "lovely" friend Amanda Begelhole.........can't believe we didn't get a piccie...UGG....but it was fabulous to see her again and take a sneak peek at little Lucy ladybug writing a tale of zzzzzzz's..........!! She is 3 and oh so sweet!!! MWAH...MWAH!
So what's new in the design/pattern department??? This is what I whipped up and released at the show............................!!
Do you have a Happy Garden???? if not then you need this!
This is my latest what I like to call "Picture Quilt" design called "Happy Happy Garden". Beautifully quilted once again by the fabulous Sharon French of "Morning Star Quilting" in a bubble design. You rock Sharon!!.....
I have used a fabric range called "Happy Moshi Yum Yum" by Lecien. I picked up a fat quarter bundle at the last Sydney Trade show and wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it but just knew I loved the colours and the subtle japanese print design in the fabrics.
Whilst fishing through a draw recently I came across a Japanese fabric calendar that was given to me after my Grandmother passed away many years ago. The year date is 1965...the year I was born and Japan was Nan's favourite country to visit. She went there a few times so that was inspiration for me to design this quilt..............! It is one of my faves. Measures in at 48" x 58" and the pattern is available now! Hope you like it..... :)
Some little treats are also available now. I have released a small pattern range and I have showed you some of these projects before but I have added one more and better photography...........there are 4 small projects to my new small pattern range and here they are.................... these little bunting pockets are perfect for the little goodies of Christmas. The kids will have a ball come Christmas morning digging around in the pockets for Christmas pickin's!
And what about all those Christmas parties and BBQ's you will be attending all decked out in your party dress with Christmas cheer in hand???? Who needs a big ol' handbag hangin' off the shoulder hey??? Just a cute little one of these, to match the frock of course....is all you need!
All these little cuties are available and at nice little price as well!! SO..... are you all running around like the mad hatter who has just realised that he has left the house without his trousers on???? LOL..........Just a little frantic due to symptoms of silly season?? It's not far away and I am yet to leave my bubble of Christmas denial...LOL! Somebody slap me!! hahahahaha..........I am one for leaving everything to the last minute so we shall see how I go with that. DOH!
See you all soon
