Holiday news

 I have had a wonderful week away on the Sunshine Coast visiting my parents. My sister lives in Cairns and she came down to see me and spend the week to with her little boy. We had a great time together, lots of shopping was done and plenty of talking into the wee hours of the morning. It was like being home when we were kids sharing a room.  I found some fabulous shops in the area, I bought these rulers at a stationary shop, I thought they would look nice in my sewing room.
 I found Spotlight so I had to check that out. I bought a few fat quarters including this recipe print. I thought it was really nice.
 In Big W I found these pretties, so I had to buy them. now to think of something to make with them. A baby quilt might be on the cards.
 We went to  the best Homewares store , I found these lovely pieces and I just had to have them. I only had carry on luggage so I couldn't buy a real lot. Probably a good thing as there was plenty I wanted.

 My beautiful boys gave me this Greengate Jug for mothers day today. I have a nice little collection  and its slowly growing.
 Here is a sneak  peek at my newest  design, coming to a magazine near you very soon. I'll let you know more details as time gets closer. Do you like it? I'm very happy how it turned out.
When I arrived home from Queensland late last night I  had this baby waiting for me, I couldn't wait to look and touch it today. Miss Kate is a beautiful range, I can't wait to cut it up and start sewing.

So thats all my news for this week, I love going on holidays but I love coming home just as much, especially when I have my boys at home waiting for me.

Happy Mothers Day to all mums out there, I hope you had a wonderful day.

Until next time, Happy Quilting.
