Life is Beautiful

 Designer pal Helen has trekked off once again to the US to attend a trade show  but this time it's all the more exciting for her as she gets to show off her gorgeous new range of fabric "Life is Beautiful" and what better way to show it off than in some of her own designs. 
A few of her stitching buddies were whipping up goodies before she left and I got to make her "Inspired to Stitch Sewing Kit"
A simple mixture of embroidery and applique, this project is quick to whip up.
If your local quilt store wants to know where to purchase these fabrics, they're made by Red Rooster Fabrics and Two Green Zebras in Australia can help them out!

The post graduate course I'm doing has already paid off, on Monday I got a Management job! I officially start next Monday!
