This is a photo of my siblings and I, circa 1981. That cute baby is my little sister Alison, who had a birthday on Monday. We were too busy celebrating for me to write a post, and now I am too crazy busy, getting ready for our big holiday to write her the post she deserves. Happy Birthday Alison, I love you.
We are all looking forward to sunny Queensland. The kids are almost jumping out of their skins with the thought of flying on a plane. Here is something that is tantalizingly, almost finished, but will not be coming on the plane – too big.
I just need to finish hand sewing on the binding, which will have to wait until we are back.
Something I will finish before I set off, is a flyer for a Christmas Carnival that I have been designing for my Church.
Here is a little Gingerbread Angel that features on it. I had lots of fun drawing up this one.
I got the latest issue of Homespun in the mail today. On page 6, right at the bottom, where the editor talks about next month’s issue is a very interesting sentence about a newcomer to pattern design. Me.
A quilt I designed for Rory, 4 years ago, is featured in December’s Kids Issue. You will have to wait until next month to see what it is though.
I had hoped to have some patterns ready to sell by the time the quilt was published, but time has gotten away from me. One day I hope to write up some patterns for the things I make, but not this week. I have some serious relaxing to do.
I’ll be back in a week and a half.
