Easter Monday

 I am having a lovely easter break, its going way too fast though. I have lots I want to achieve today so I'm up early and making a start on my list. I wanted to share with you a beautiful gift I received from my dear friend Sunny who lives in the USA. My most favourite place to visit,  Sunny made me the sweetest sewing theme mini quilt. I just love it. Look at the cute sewing machine, the pin cushion is even padded and looks amazing.


 Sunny also made me this very pretty stitchery, I want to take it to work and have it on my desk.
 And some gorgeous Rose fabrics, oh Sunny you know me so well, I love these. Thankyou so much my friend, these gifts will be treasures always.
 I have some other exciting news I would like to share with you, my latest design called "Seed Basket" is published in the latest Patchwork and Stitching magazine, this is my 18th design now I have had published and I am loving every minute I spend in my sewing room. Today I am writing up a new pattern for Homespun magazine so please stay tuned for more on that one.

 I was lucky enough to have my design on the front cover. Such a proud moment when I first set eyes on the magazine.
I hope you have all had a lovely Easter and you found some sewing time.

Take care. xx

So very spoilt with super gifts. I will look out for that copy of P&S. I don't normally buy it as it is always sealed in plastic and I like to see what I am buying (my rule is at least two projects that I like but I have been known to buy a mag because I like one of the projects so very much) this could be THE one project.
