Sorry I disappeared off the face of the earth for a few weeks, but I am back!!

I have finished 5 quilts to label stage now!! Let’s Celebrate!!!

First one: My Dear Jane!!! Here is a graphic of the label I sewed on…

Please excuse the weird color, will have to figure out how to fix it…

I also put the label on my machine quilted ALQS quilt. It will be heading….somewhere this week!

The other finishes were the 3 baby quilts, ready to give away now… won’t show more photos of the same thing 🙂

I also have other reasons to celebrate: the generosity of quilty bloggers and friends. I have a story to tell soon of some lovely Australian designers who all helped me to get some quilting souvenirs for my husband to bring home from his trip (halfway through…he is home on Friday!!) But I also won an AMAZING package from Dawn Hay. I can’t believe how HUGE this prize was. Thank you so much Dawn!! So many lovely things, I love it all!!!
Gifts from Dawn Hay!

 My wonderful blogging buddy Barbara in Sweden sent over this goodie package. We are encouraging each other to lose kilos and sending sock yarn for each kilo… so far I ‘ve lost 2, so some sock yarn came my way, and the bag handles for a bag Barbara is helping me make!

I have been crazy busy with kids: birthday parties, goodbye parties, sports day, school play, playdates… if you are interested in seeing some photos or movies, check out my Flickr or YouTube!!  This week has more insane schedules, end of school, more playdates, some mommy quilting and knitting playdates, and packing for the States! Tomorrow I head into town to get those few “surprise” kids magazines and sweets I can pull out during our travels.  Guess I can slow down sometime after the Sisters Quilt Show!!
