British Patchwork & Quilting Giveaway and Some Cherries Jubilee Sewing


 Oh, so I've been holding out on you!  I'm excited to share with you that a couple weeks ago I received an email informing me that I am to be published in the August issue of British Patchwork and Quilting, on sale July 15th!  In celebration of this event I'm hosting a giveaway for a copy of this beautiful magazine full of wonderful projects, stories and pictures.  If you have never had your hands on a copy of British Patchwork and Quilting, here is your chance!  I have two to giveaway, one which I will send domestically (Australia) and one I will send internationally.  Please leave a comment whether you are in Australia or abroad and I will do the drawing on July 15th. 

Lately I have been busy celebrating our 5th anniversary (on the 4th), enjoying some sunny winter days with the boys and sewing up old projects.  I'm working on 3 or 4 at once doing most of the processing sewing (chain-piecing, etc.) so there is not much to show you at the moment, but here is one that I can show you.  It's been in storage three years now, but I've decided to get it done!  I love love love this line called Cherries Jubilee by American Jane.  My only problem is that I am not sure that I picked a block (design) that will do this line justice.  We'll see how it unfolds.  I've got a lot of trimming to do before I can work on sewing the pieces of the block together...
