It is 2012 already – where does the time go?
My Beautiful Sampler Book
I was so overcome when I received my gift whilst on our Scottish mini tour at the end of last year that I did not read all the paperwork in the parcel! So now to put the record straight here are the details of the wonderful bunch who took on the task of re-stitching and making up my book after the original was stolen at the Festival of Quilts. I cannot thank you enough for all your hard work – I shall treasure my book and it will not go to Fairs!

At Pinks Barn
I have had about a fortnight of playing house whilst doing “Christmas” and I must admit to enjoying myself very much indeed.I found a pretty table for the hall and spent a day painting and distressing it and hunted for bits and pieces for the house – This can be a very expensive exercise……. Thank heavens that I need props for for photography!
It is also lovely to be back in my lovely tidy, clean, organised studio!It feels clean and fresh and so it should. I have cleared lots of stuff and will start adding goodies to the CSG Sale Bin very shortly. Watch this space…..
It is always a bit of a wrench to discontinue designs – I am always fond of them but there comes a time when the shelves have to be pruned and the range needs refreshing!
My head is simply busting with ideas and new designs – why can’t I have some more hours in the day?I will be taking my sketch pad and notebook with me when Bill and I leave for our holiday on 14th January. I am going to keep you guessing about the destination – all I am going to tell you is that we are flying from Gatwick and will be away for two weeks…….
I am going to close now and have another play with our new Phone App – I will publish some pictures and more details about it shortly.
