Well it’s about time!!!

It’s been over a month!!! I can’t believe it’s been that long since I blogged!! So what have I been up to??? Well grab a cuppa cos this might be a long post lol!!!
TASSIE :D!!        Oh we had a blast!! Old friends revisited and new friends made. Such a fabulous weekend and I can’t wait til the next time!!  Here’s the set up for the retreat sewing day, doesn’t it look pretty!!??!Tassie Trip 2012 526We had so many wonderful goodies in those pink and blue bags!! Here’s all the gawjus ladies for the group shot…Tassie Trip 2012 546We also had loads of fun before our big sewing day. Our hilarious “Left/Right” game brought to us by the gawjus Dawnie, we laughed and laughed!!  Everyone concentrating on what Dawnie is saying ....Tassie Trip 2012 486I just noticed I’m looking particularly flash there in the rather elegant rubber gloves I’d won earlier and my very bestest slippers. Oh dear lol. My DH very kindly took that shot, … he was the only man there for the weekend, I think he quite enjoyed himself lol…Tassie Trip 2012 442Yep, he’s looking pretty happy he he he. That’s Fee and Michelle making him smile lol. We really did have a most incredible time, I can’t wait for next year in Adelaide! Want to come to?? We’d love to have you along :o). When we got home Bear’s little dog ‘Doug’ very kindly helped us to open the mail … isn’t he a sweet little helper he he…April 2012 008
Moving along ......... I was in a super-fun Easter swap run by Maree. Here’s what I sent to my partner Carol …


And here’s what I received from my lovely partner Peg, look how beautifully it’s wrapped :o)!! April 2012 009

Aren’t they all beautiful!!! I should add that there was also chocolate in the package which for some reason (he he he) didn’t make it to the photo-shoot ;o). Thanks again Peg, I love it all :o)!! And huge big thanks to Maree for organising it all for us too :D!!!

Before I go I’ll show you a couple of new patterns that I’ve released this month …

“Coming up Roses” on the left is a cute pleated front bag with a zipper to close it and a pocket on front that closes with a magnetic clip - very soft and feminine in the pink and white but would look fabulous in orientals to don't you thing??? And “Sweet Ensuite” from “Let’s get Stitched in Tassie” - a great bathroom set - and the towel topper is removable so you can have several towels to pop in it and just remove them to wash them. Easy peasy ;o). If you’d like either of these patterns check out my Where to buy JoyPatch patterns page :o) . Oh, and here’s a sneaky peek at what I’m working on now, I love it!!!!
April 2012 075 Sorry, that’s all I can show you for now ;o).
