Fireside Gossip

You might remember that a few weeks back I went to Honeysuckle Cottage, not only ofr a quilting course but they also had a HUGE sale on.
Kim is very busy loading all the sales onto the web at the moment, so check it out over the next week (click on sales).
There are LOTS are gorgeous fabrics on FABULOUS sales;
time is limited so HURRY HURRY HURRY!
My friend Joy at Joypatch is having a giveaway of her new gorgeous pattern - 'Dragonflight', so head over and put your name down to go in for the draw.
Recently I spotted her Panda quilt 'Pandamonium' in the ad section of Australian Quilters Companion mag; I felt so excited for her seeing it in full colour being shown off!

My remaining news that I didn't share the other day was that by this time next week I should have two patterns to release under 'Oh Sew Busy'! I am sooo excited about this!
I have HEAPS more in the works - you know me, always loads going on here *grin*.
The majority of my designs at present are mostly simple ones, and ones utilising jellyrolls/layercakes and charm squares; things that are reasonably quick and easy to get together.
I have no doubt that as my experience broadens that my designs will change over time; this is exciting as I have NO idea which direction I will go. Maybe I will continue on this eclectic road of mine, who knows???? *grin*
So late next week I should have some details to give you.

Awesome news, congrats!

Stephanie said...

Congratulations on your patterns. I, too, have heaps in the works but my first one should be out very very soon. I rely on snippets of my techno savvy daughter's time to do the computer part so it's taken a bit longer than I'd like to get the first one done.

The table runner is just lovely. I have seen that Jinny Beyer book - so many beautiful thinks to make it in and you're right challanging too. Can't wait to see what you are making. I had to start my ban on Sunday - On saturday I purposely went out and bought a bolt of white, 1 yard of yellow polka dotted and 2 yards to coordinate with Christmas fabrics for gifts. I stocked up on needles, spray baste, to keep myself away from the stores. So now I can finish up projects and no running out for a yard of white or a little piece to match. That's where I get into trouble!

Woohoo good for you Bec! I wouldn't mind trying to produce a pattern or 2 or 3 at some point, but I haven't the first clue as to make that happen beyond designing...lol!
Good luck with your venture... 8-)
