Exciting News!

Well I'm back. I think the new blog will definitely be ready to go shortly. Too much for me to put in my humble little blog.

So the first piece of exciting news is that Di is rereleasing a beautiful pattern called "Homage to Sallie Ann"



It really is the most beautiful quilt. The version above was made by Merri. The patterns are available from Threadbear.

But even more exciting (well for me and hopefully for some of you) is that while I was writing the last post, Di called me to tell me that our group had been invited to be the next exhibitors at "Quilts in the Barn". Well I think we each squealed down the phone when Di rang us - she probably is a little bit deaf tonight.

How am I going to turn my UFO's into exhibit pieces? A few late nights ahead I think.

The exhibition is planned for October 2010 so we have some time. Wow...so excited. I have never shown my work before. Won't that be fun?

Have a great week.

That's very exciting news Deb, I've long admired the Homage to Sally Anne quilt. Great news for us lovers of the antique and appliqued quilts. Congratulations on the exhibiton, now if I can get there I will.

How exciting Deb!! I couldn't get there this weekend but next year is a definite now. I might have to look for that pattern next time I go to Castlemaine, I don't think I've got enough to do at the moment!!
