Okay, so it's not really me on the cover ... just my pattern LOL. I got a lovely surprise when I went into the newsagents just last week ...... there on the shelf was a brand new magazine - "Quick and Easy Crafts" ... and one of MY PATTERNS is on the cover!! Woohoo!! That's mine in the middle, "Bees 'n' Daisies" bag. It was published in Patchwork and Stitching many months ago but I didn't expect it to make another apearance. How exciting!!!I just love the piccy ... :o).
I got some lovely mail this week too :o). I bought these fabulous "Portobello Market" fabrics to go with a jelly roll and layer cake that I already have ...Also these gorgeous "Fig and Plum" precuts .... a layer cake and a charm pack, aren't they great!!?! Not sure what I'll use them for, might just have to look at them for a little while first ;o).
My DH and I took advantage of the glorious Winter weather we're having at the moment and yesterday we took a day trip to a place called Nobby just a little bit south of Toowoomba. What a terrific little town it is!! We had lunch at "Rudd's Pub" named in honour of Steele Rudd of "Dad and Dave" fame - it's simply choccas with fabulous memorabilia!! Here's DH at the bar ordering our Steak Sanga and Chook Sanga - yep, that's how it was written on the menu!! Next to the pub is a little Vintage Museum, which is actually a private collection of all things wonderful from days gone by. I found she had a most enviable collection of sewing goodies - I had a wonderful time gazing upon all these lovelies!! Don't you just love the vintage fabric here - and the fantastic wedding dress pattern!!!?!?
I'd better be off and get my stuff ready for tomorrow ... I'm running my first workshop, it's for my Diamonds and Braids quilt. I'm a bit nervous, so glad to be doing it with the girls in my quilt group - I haven't really taught before so wish me luck!!
P.S ... I couldn't resist including this piccy, DH just called me in to take a look at this .... can't you just tell that DD2 is sitting in Sophie's bean bag!!?!! Actually, it's DD2's bean bag but Sophie doesn't think so LOLOL!!!!
