Hello Lovelies!!

I bet you thought I was talking to you! Well I was actually talking to these goodies I got this week but a big hello to all you bloggy lovelies too!

I was so lucky to win Elefantz's 500 followers giveaway and I received Tilda's Sew Christmas Homestyle, it's a gorgeous book and I could drool over the pictures for hours!
A huge Thank-you to Jenny for such a wonderful prize and you deserve every one of those 500 followers plus as you're an inspiration to us all!

I couldn't resist this bargain from Mother's Cupboard, yummy, Portobello Market - Chocolate Swirl fabric that I'll use to back my Gardener's Journal quilt when I get around to making it. I have this range of fabrics already to complete the top.
And these little goodies are about to wing their way around the world to a stitcher, wonder if I'm your angel?

An update on my DS, he's almost 100% better and back at school.

I'm also about to take time off from my regular day job and you'll find me here for the next two and a bit weeks looking after the shop while Leonie and Deirdre trek off to Houston, Lucky Gals! So if I can help with anything just give me a call! I'm looking forward to getting to know all the fabric, inch x inch. Hubby thinks I'm nuts taking holidays to do this but only another stitcher would understand, so I guess you're all a wee bit envious!

Hi Jo, me little lovelie!

Beautiful treats on display there sweetie. I have that Tilda book and it is divine. If you haven't got the most recent one I highly recommend it. Even a non-stitcher would enjoy flicking through the eye-candy pages.

As always, your creations are drop dead gorgeous! And yes - I wish I could look after a patchwork store for a couple of weeks! I understand you!!!!

Hugs! Vikki xoxo
