Made by my facebook friend - they are so cute!
Le Bouquet Francais is the new French General range - and lookie at what I have sitting on my workbench!
A fat quarter pack and a jelly roll!
I think you already realize that hot weather and I just don't go together, and I know that some of you love Summer, but that's the way it is.
Give me a lovely crackling log fire and a misty Winter day and I'm happy.
P.S. News of a Make and Take workshop to be held at the April AQC in Melbourne coming soon.

air-conditioning on (it was installed two years ago and we don't know how we survived for so long without it!), blogging. One of my facebook friends sent me these two photos of teddy and doll sleeping bags - she made them using a pattern of mine, Teddy Bear Cot Quilt. Carefully personalized for the lucky children who will be receiving them. I think they are just beautiful!
P.S. Stay cool (if you are in the antipodes. If you are in the northern hemisphere, stay warm!).

Ernie Dingle is on his way! He's ready for the Fabric Frolic 2014 and is looking forward to seeing all his friends! They spent a happy but noisy afternoon making plans at The Patchwork Tea House.
"Where are our scones......?" could be heard from table number 9. Ernie and his "New Best Friends" were getting a little testy! Gary was slow to bring out the scones........the group were getting restless.
At last! A real Teddy Bear Tea Party.......
......but with babyccinos!
facebook page for more details.
P.S. What a lovely way to spend the day with friends - doing the rounds of your favourite patchwork shops!

The quilt below has been made by my cousin, Heather, who is a Canadian - she has been having lessons and I think the result is beautiful! I can't wait to see what she produces next.
Met old friends, took lots of orders and made some new contacts in the patchwork world.
At the Bottom of the Garden" (what a mouthful - what was I thinking when I named this pattern.....) is one of my designs that is an evergreen - it keeps in selling.
Miche'le from New Zealand has made it in these lovely greens.
P.S. I was thrilled when the treadle machine arrived at our house! Two hands to sew with!!! Although it took a while to get the feet going smoothly - to avoid back-sewing and broken threads!

Finally, news of several new designs.
Above is "Garden party", with birds, parasols, flowers, cupcakes, champagne, a teapot, teacup and even bunting!
Below is "The Sewing lesson", with Mother Bear teaching her cubs how to put love into every stitch.
I also have some new and very cute pre-printed stitcheries. These are on homespun and don't come with instructions - they can be stitched and used in whatever project you choose.
Go to the New Products page on my website. You will find them all there.Liz
P.S. We will once again be going to some of the Craft Alive shows (Victoria and New South Wales) in 2014, so keep an eye out for dates and venues near you.

Below is my work area. Ernie left his mess everywhere - champagne and biscuits & cheeses are some of his favorite pre-dinner snacks. And look at his work mess!
I'm much tidier!
I do apologise for the sideways photos - I can't get my head around turning them - they end up very short and wide. But here goes!
Jo's was (we thought) very arctic. So a penguin was in order.
P.S. New designs next!!!!!!!!!
